  • Can you hear me now?


    Just for clarity, here you go...

    NFL/Super Bowl Championships (9):

    NYG:1927, 1934, 1938, 1956, XXI, XXV, XLII, and XLVI.
    NYJ: III

    NBA Championships (2):
    NYN: 1970 and 1973.

    Stanley Cups (11):
    NYR: 1928, 1933, 1940, 1994
    NYI: 1980, 1981, 1982, 1983,
    NJD: 1995, 2000, 2003.

    World Series titles (35):
    NYG: 1905, 1921, 1922, 1933, 1954,
    Brooklyn: 1955,
    NYM: 1969, and my favorite… 1986.
    NYY? See sig!

    That's 57 World Championships! How many you got Boston*?
    [*35 by my count, "titletown" indeed. NYC, can match Boston's TOTAL title count with just their World Series titles!]


    NOTE: I've included the following banner to denote how many championships (22) my favorite pro teams have won in my lifetime:


    How are you doing?

      Well. The Islanders & New Jersey are disqualified because they don't play in New York City and where did the Giants football team play before the Meadowlands? What state is Giants Stadium located buddy-boy????? Not in New York thats for sure. See. Evil Empire. Through and through. Cheat, cheat and cheat some more . . . . - roof:

      TWO baseball teams, Now, TWO football teams. [since the Giants moved out of Jersey]

        Well, I did count the 1914 World Series Champion Braves as a title for Boston. Hey, it's not my fault you paupers can only afford one team per sport. Besides, by your logic, the Foxborough Patriots (22 miles outta' Boston) wouldn't count either.


        FYI: Before moving to the Meadowlands, the NY (football) Giants played at a quaint little ballpark in The Bronx...

        Travel distances from NYC to:
        East Rutherford, NJ = 13 miles (NYG/NYJ);
        Newark, NJ = 10 miles (NJD); and
        Long Island, NY = 51 miles (NYI)

          The Patriots are called "New England." Boston is in New England. New York is NOT New Jersey.

            I concur with the distinguished gentleman from dear old Bahston about the page turning, but I'm not wholly convinced about the coincidence part. When it comes to all things baseball, very little is purely chance; otherwise we would be playing the woulda shoulda coulda thing incessantly.

              Non sequiter. Foxborough is not in Boston and the topic is titletown. Not "title-geographical-area-ofthe-country." :stare: Otherwise, you'd soon claim that UConn's 2 shinny new titles count for Boston too. If you clain the Pats, you must concede the "New York Metro Area." Indeed, if you Google "map of the new york metropolitan area" this is the very first map:



              But it's pointless. NYC proper has 35 WORLD SERIES Championships. That's equal to Boston's TOTAL title count. Clearly...



              You guys are just the decade's city. That said, it's been unprecedented run.*

                  Well said.

                  But keep in mind that
                  he is from New York.

                  So when you tell him that Boston is in 'New England' he's probably thinking it's a suburb of London.* -

                      He's not booed because he signed with another team.
                      He's booed because he signed with the New York Yankees.

                        Don't worry. I understand reading's "not your thing." Being from Boston and all... :clown:

                              It was SO obvious.

                              Finally a manager asked an umpire to check him for the pine tar on his neck was long over due...

                              • Well, it's an automatic 10-game suspension (for something that is done routinely throughout MLB). That said, most MLB pitchers have more craftiness. Jeez man, why don't you take a full page "I'M USING PINE TAR!" ad out in the TIMES. It'd be more subtle than a glop of tar on your neck! Idiot.
