What a god damn run Boston sports has been on.
Since the year 2000, the New England Patriots, Boston Red Sox, Boston Bruins, and Boston Celtics have combined for 12 championships. That averages out at around one championship every other year. It really is crazy to think about, but we already know how wild of a ride this has been. Last night, in losing fashion, the two teams who always share a post-season marked the end of a pretty incredible statistic.
Today is the first day since May 7, 2010 that the Bruins and Celtics have lost a postseason game on the same day.

Both the Celtics and Bruins took L’s in their respective second-round games on the same day for the first time since 2010. Are you shitting me? These two teams have missed the playoffs a combined 3 times since then. If you take out the missed years, that’s SIX fairly deep playoff runs where neither team has lost on the same day. They’ve already played on the same night multiple times this post-season, so chances are they’ve done it multiple times in past years as well. I’m really having a hard time wrapping my head around this.
Last night being the first time both teams have lost on the same day in nearly a decade is just another testament to how dominant this run has been for the city of Boston. I need a documentary on it when everything is all said and done.
