Boston teams are always in contention
Boston sports teams are very successful, as evidenced by its seven pro championships since 2001. The Bruins are the most recent victors, beating the Vancouver Canucks in seven games in 2011 to win hockey’s Stanley Cup. It took the Red Sox 86 years to end a curse of no championships, but in 2004 that streak snapped. The Red Sox won once more in ‘07, the Celtics won in ‘08, and the Patriots won it all three times in four years (’01, 03 and ‘04). The Bruins and Patriots made it to the Stanley Cup Final and Super Bowl respectively last year.
