With the Patriots not playing in the Super Bowl this year, the Celtics floundering, the Red Sox coming up short all hopes of a championship anytime soon are now resting on the Bruins.

The question is how does Boston currently rate on the list of the “Best Sports Cities” in the country?  The Patriots' last Super Bowl win was in 2019, the Bruins won their last Stanley Cup in 2011.  The Red Sox beat the Dodgers in 5 games to win their last World Series in 2018 and the Celtics won their last championship in 2010.  In 26 seasons the New England Revolution has never won a championship.

WalletHub release a study late last year ranking the “Best Sports Cities” in the U.S.  The final results not only had Boston placing high in the rankings but Boston was #1 in the WalletHub “Best Sports Cities” survey.

When it comes to sports Boston represents all of New England.  We love our Pats, B’s Celts, and Sox.  We cheer when they are winning and we have all the answers when things aren’t going so well.  No matter what happens we stand by them and will go toe-to-toe with any fan from another team trashing our hometown team.  Only we can do that.  Congratulation to Boston (and all of New England) for being the Best Sports City in the country!
