Professional sports, No. 3
It’s hard to figure, after a year that saw the Red Sox win the World Series, the Bruins return to the Stanley Cup final, and the Patriots hosting the AFC Championship game, how you could do much better in professional sports than Boston. Alas, the Hub finished third, behind Denver (?) and No. 1 Chicago, which watched the Blackhawks beat the Bruins last June for the Stanley Cup.
