BOSTON is the mecca of sports superiority! The Patriots, Red Sox, Bruins and Celtics have all won championships in the last decade. The Pats and Sox have won multiple. The New England Patriots will be in their unprecedented 10th Super Bowl, when they play the Philadelphia Eagles at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis on Sunday, February 4, 2018 in Super Bowl LII (52 for those of you like me who don't do well with Roman numerals.)
Philadelphia is an old, historic city much like Boston. BUT, the "Hub" has got it over the "City of Brotherly Love" by a long shot.
Statues: Boston has Red Auerbach, Bobby Orr, Ted Williams and Bill Russell. Philly has the fictitious "Rocky" statue: Boston wins!
Landmarks: Boston has the "Bunker Hill Monument" where the colonists did heavy damage to the British in 1775. Philly has the "Liberty Bell"...and it is cracked: Boston wins!
Rock Bands: Boston has an all time great rock band named after it - "Boston". Ever go see "Philadelphia" in concert? NOPE: Boston wins!
Food: Boston has the lobster roll, baked beans and Boston Cream Pie! Philly has those cheese steaks, made from fake, melted cheese drizzled over cheap, shaved steak, the part no one wants: Boston wins!
Sports championships: Boston has won 7 world championships (Pats, Red Sox, Bruins, Celtics) in the last decade. Philly has one, the 2008 Phillies: Boston wins!
Super Bowl championships: Patriots have won 5. The Eagles have NEVER won a Super Bowl: BOSTON WINS!
I rest my case!
