IT'S JUST A MORE DESERVING FANBASE:

Patriots' Latest Super Bowl Berth Reminds Us That Boston Sports Fans Are Spoiled (Brandon Chase, Jan 24, 2012, NESN)

When President Barack Obama honored the 2011 Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins at the White House on Monday, he jokingly said "The Bruins, the Sox, the Celtics, now the Patriots.  Enough already, Boston."

In retrospect, President Obama makes a valid statement.

The B's White House visit came less than 24 hours after the Patriots secured a fifth trip to the Super Bowl in the last 10 years and these two celebrations are a reminder of how spoiled Boston sports fans really are.

Anyone who's followed the Boston sports scene over the past decade knows about the Titletown label.  They have made the fanbases of the four home teams expect nothing less than the best year in and year out. Success is gauged not on regular season wins, or division titles, but by championships.  Boston sports fans are a unique breed and they demand perfection. They have the unprecedented run of title runs to thank for that.
