The Patriots are far and away the main attraction in Boston. I'd argue the Red Sox are fighting with the Celtics for 3rd place in spite of winning the World Series less than a year ago. But the Patriots have won it all even more recently and have had unprecedented sustained success over a long period of time. In spite of the fact that the Sox have won 4 WS titles since 2004, they've been inconsistent (missing the playoffs again this year). The Bruins were in the Stanley Cup finals a few months ago are are off to a good start while the Sox are done, so they're more popular now too. There's some optimism for the Celtics, which is more than you can say for the Sox right now. So really, they're in or near the popularity basement at the moment.

Historically this is a baseball town and will likely be one again in the future. But until Brady and Belichick's historic reign is done, it's solidly a football town. And I say that as a bigger baseball fan than a football fan.
Yeah Chicago completely slipped my mind.

I wouldn't argue this regarding the Boston. The Patriots have have cemented themselves as the "it" franchise for the city currently, man have times changed lol

I am pulling for the Nats too. After Boston, DC is the city I have spent the most time living in, so I have a soft spot. Plus, I really hate the Astros.
