New England is not so small--15 million or so among the six states, and I wouldn't call Boston off on its own. Mass, Conn and Rhode Island together have a dense web of smaller cities and metro areas, which, in the southwest, rub up against metro New York. Boston is farther from the other big eastern seaboard cities than the rest of them are from each other but in between Boston and New York you have Worcester and Providence, Springfield and Hartford, New Haven and Bridgeport, and many smaller places around and among those. Not much rural hinterland in that stretch!

And the Portland/Seattle/Vancouver BC is not so small either. Probably 10 million in these metros combined, plus in-between cities.

Oh.

You mean the Patriots championships mired in controversy over cheating?

TD Garden not selling out games until the Celtics and Bruins won championships?

Those ones?

Wasn't aware Tom Brady, Zdeno Chara and David Ortiz were Boston natives.

6. Philadelphia
7. Seattle
8. Portland.
9. Baltimore
10. San Diego

That puts all but one of the Bos-Wash cities in the top 6, with the bottom 4 being all pretty close.

My inclusion of San Jose is as a part of SF.
You might as well put San Diego part of L.A and Philly part of NY, too. You know, there's a huge wall between SF and SJ: San Mateo and Santa Clara county line!!!!!

I'll take 9 championships in 15 years. And another coming at the end of the month and probably another Red Sox WS this year.

So will LA. Angels 2002, Ducks 2007, Kings 2012/2014, Lakers, 2000/2001/2002/2009/2010. Looks like 9 in 15.

Looks like Boston isn't so special, and if you wanna get pedantic about Anaheim, do we get pedantic about Foxboro?

The whole city superiority over another because of sports teams winning championships is beyond retarded. Especially when the teams are made-up of players not local to said city.
