We are truly a spoiled fanbase, aren’t we?

Since the turn of the century, Boston sports has been the epicenter of excellence and habitual success. This trend continued on Sunday as the New England Patriots downed the Seattle Seahawks 28-24 in an instant Super Bowl classic. In turn, the Patriots added their fourth championship since 2001, and Tom Brady further solidified his legacy as the greatest quarterback in NFL history — depending on who you ask.

Too most people, Title Town is synonymous with Green Bay and pays homage to the Packers 13 NFL Championships, but shouldn’t that distinction truly lie in Boston? After all, since the turn of the century Boston has enjoyed a combined nine championships, en route to becoming the sports envy of America. Along the way, Boston has played host to some of the greatest athletes of modern day sports like Tom Brady, David Ortiz, Paul Pierce, and Patrice Bergeron. It might sound cocky, but the proof is in the pudding; a championship culture has been built, grown, and sustained in Boston: America’s new Title Town.

  • The Red Sox agreed to terms with free agent reliever Alexi Ogando on a 1-year, $1.5 million contract over the weekend. The 31-year old endured an rough, injury-shortened season in 2014 as a member of the Texas Rangers. In 25 innings Ogando posted an ERA over 6.00 and a WHIP close to 2.00. An elbow sprain sidelined Ogando for the bulk of the season, and concerns from the injury later caused the Rangers to release the Domincan Republic native. Boston, however, believes that Ogando’s medicals suggest a return to health, and will use the pitcher out of the bullpen in 2015. (Red Sox sign former All-Star Alexi Ogando)
  • In case you were caught up in the DeflateGate story that dominated the local and national headlines, Joe Kelly predicted that he will win the American League Cy Young award in 2015. I know what you’re thinking and no, the well-known prankster wasn’t joking. Kelly strolled about Red Sox Winter Weekend at Foxwoods Casino last week proclaiming his prediction to the media. While the 26-year old’s statistics don’t suggest that he’s a pitcher on the cusp of a Cy Young award, the still-developing right hander has the stuff to somewhat justify a his prediction. (Why Joe Kelly predicting he will win the Cy Young Award makes all the sense in the world)
