A Reflection on the Sheer Majesty of Patriot's Latest Championship Win
Foxborough, MA - It has now officially been two days since the New England Patriots proved victorious over the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl LIII to clinch their sixth Super Bowl title in franchise history, which means it has also been exactly one hundred days since the Boston Red Sox won the 2018 World Series in baseball. It's safe to say it's been a pretty good season for Boston sports. And with the Boston Celtics and the Boston Bruins competing for the post-season, it may not be over yet.
But regardless, the two biggest teams in the Boston sports area are champions in the same year, which has only happened four other times in the history of sports. Of course, one of those times came in 2004 when the Red Sox and Patriots won their respective championships.
While the Red Sox were dominant for their 2018 championship, the Patriots definitely had to work a bit harder, but they were no less successful.
So not only has Tom Brady won his sixth Super Bowl, more than any other player in the NFL history, but Bill Belichick has won his eighth. And the Patriots have now cemented themselves as the dynastic team of both the 2000s and the 2010s. Many players in the 2010s were not around for the 2000s era team, but they have now risen to equal levels of iconic stature in the New England region. The dynasty has lasted so long that second half additions like Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman now have three rings on their resumes.
The numbers for the Patriots are video game numbers at this point, but one thing is certain. It never gets old.
Edelman and Brady went to Walt Disney World yesterday and they rolled down the streets of Boston for a parade today, just one hundred days after the Red Sox had a parade of their own. It's Boston's twelfth championship in seventeen years. If they weren't already Titletown, it's undeniable now. Brady is the greatest winner in the history of sports, most likely. It's all good right now in Boston. And that seems like the biggest takeaway from Sunday's victory. We are privy to the greatest dynasty in sports history. Let's just enjoy it. Because you know what? It's all good!
