1) From 2002-2008, Boston's big four sports teams (Patriots, Red Sox, Celtics, Bruins) combined to win six titles, going 6-1 in championship appearances.
Since the Celtics claimed their 17 NBA championship in 2008, Boston's big four sports teams have gone a combined 2-4. The two championships claimed:
2) From 1960-2000, the New England Patriots won (11) or more games in a regular season (5) times. Since 2001, the team has won (11) or more games (10) times. The Patriots only failed to do so in three seasons during that span and have not produced a losing record since 2000 (5-11). 2000 is also the last season in which the Ptariots have failed to win nine or more games.
3) The Boston Celtics 17 NBA titles are more than the Heat, Knicks, Rockets, Wizards, Hawks, Thunder, Trail Blazers, Mavericks, Bucks, Kings, Nets, Magic, Suns, Jazz, Cavaliers and Pacers COMBINED!
4) In the club's 114 seasons of existence, the Boston Red Sox have only won 100 or more games three times. Oddly enough, each 100 plus win season came prior to 1962, when MLB extended the regular season to 162 games. The last 100 plus win season came in 1946, when the Red Sox finished the season 104-50. Boston would go onto lose the World Series in seven games to the St. Louis Cardinals that year.
5) In their first NHL in 1926, the Boston Bruins finished the year with 12 pts, (6-24-0). Four years later, the Bruins would go onto claim their first Stanley Cup title in franchise history, defeating the the New York Rangers 2-0, in a best-of-three series.
