I think I have lived through the four greatest years in Boston sports history in my time here. When I arrived my freshman year, the Patriots had never won a Superbowl, the Curse lived, and basketball and hockey weren't even on the radar screen. My freshman year, the Patriots won the Superbowl and a car was destroyed in Harvard Square. Junior year, they won again. Now it's senior year, we've reversed the Curse (my dad can die a happy man) and the Pats have done it yet again. By Chinese standards, it's not much of a dynasty, but I guess American sports fans don't define their dynasties by generations.
When I graduate, I predict that everything in Boston sports will go all to hell again.
I must admit I find football extremely entertaining to watch, and I admire the coach of the Pats extremely for using statistical and economic analysis to optimize the salaries and the number and proportion of players on the roster. It just goes to show that those who can crunch the numbers win every time :-)
