The Patriots

Obviously it’s been quiet lately but wherever Matt is we can assume he’s deliriously happy right now. The Patriots just won their playoff game and will go the the Super Bowl - again! And it was one of the most exciting games i’ve ever seen. What a screamer!

Re: The Patriots

It has been quite the year for Boston sports teams. How many times have the Red Sox and the Patriots won in the same year?

RE: Re: The Patriots

That is a very interesting question! I didn't know but the site baseballwithmatt (not our Matt obviously:) says that since the inception of the Super Bowl in 1967 it's happened several times. New York, Baltimore, Pittsburg and Boston all have dual winners in the same "season":

"The last time that the Super Bowl/World Series Same City Phenomenon occurred was in Boston. The New England Patriots, with Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, won Super Bowls in 2004 and 2005. The Red Sox, meanwhile, ended the Curse of the Bambino in the 2004 World Series, where they swept the Cardinals for Boston’s first World Series championship since 1918. The Bostonian teams could’ve done this in 2007 also (the Red Sox won the ’07 Series in a sweep over the Rockies), but the Patriots couldn’t win Super Bowl XLII, despite their perfect season."

That's probably more than you wanted to know! I'm still pumped up from yesterday's games, and I don't even care for football. Ha.
