Boston has been on top of the sports world for the past 20 years.
Between the New England Patriots dynasty bookending the last two decades along with championships from the Boston Red Sox, Boston Celtics, and Boston Bruins thrown in, it’s been a run of dominance no region has ever experienced in professional sports.
And keeping with that same tradition, no Boston sports team has lost at home this fall.
The Celtics are 7-0 at the Garden while having a relatively impressive season thus far given the injury to Gordon Hayward. They’ll be taking on the Miami Heat Wednesday night looking to extend that record.
The Bruins are 12-0-4 at the Garden as they lead the NHL in points overall. While they’ve been walking on thin ice here and there with the four overtime losses, the B’s still have yet to come out on the losing end in regulation.
The Patriots have a record of 5-0 at Gillette Stadium this season and while they have yet to face a team above .500 at home this year, the undefeated record is still impressive. Of course, this weekend the Pats will be facing arguably their toughest team to date in the Kansas City Chiefs.
Few states, or even regions for that matter, can boast four legitimate title-contending teams year-in and year-out. And while the Red Sox obviously are in their offseason, the teams playing are all contenders for their respective championships.
Home field advantage is a very real thing, and in New England, it’s about as real as it gets.
