Last week, the Boston Bruins won the Stanley Cup over the Vancouver Canucks to win their first Stanley Cup since 1972. Now, the Boston sports teams have each won a title in this decade. The town has become so used to winning, but the team that won the first title of the decade is now the team searching to break a drought? In 2001, the Patriots were the team that was second to the Boston Red Sox in people’s minds. However, they were the team that made some Red Sox fans celebrate despite the Curse of the Bambino looming over their heads.
There is no curse for the Patriots, at least none that we know of here at Foxboro Blog. Since their Super Bowl win over the Eagles in 2005, the Patriots have had numerous chances to win the title, but they keep falling short. The Red Sox, Celtics, and now the Bruins have now all won a title since that time. So, it has Boston and Patriots’ fans alike saying: When are we going to celebrate another title?
Don’t worry, Patriots’ fans. As long as Tom Brady and Bill Belichick are around, this team will always be in contention for a championship. Once this lockout is over, we will get to see if the 2011 version of the Patriots can become the champions of old.
