This Week’s City…


For years, the Boston sports culture was defined by the fall of the Larry Bird era, the struggles of the Patriots, the inability to find the next Bobby Orr and, of course, the Curse of the Bambino. But then, a shaggy-haired kid from California took over for the injured Drew Bledsoe and the entire landscape of Boston sports changed. Tom Brady has led the Pats to three Super Bowl titles, the Red Sox came back from three games to none in 2004 for their first World Series in 86 years (then added another title in 2007), and the original Big Three of Paul Pierce, Ray Allen and Kevin Garnett resurrected basketball in the Boston Garden and captured the NBA Title.

From two different New York perspectives, this should be real fun.
