NESN’s Boston’s Greatest Sports Moment Round 2: Back Bay bracket:
(1) Pats win SB XXXVI vs. (8) Orr’s No. 4 retired: You’d have to literally hate the shit out of football and/or victory to pick against the Pats here. 
(12) Thomas stick save vs. (4) Ortiz G4 walk-off: I mean that Thomas save was sick, but it can’t touch the beginning of the greatest comeback in sports history.  No fuckin’ way.
(6) Impossible Dream vs. (3) Tuck Rule: I voted for the ID in round 1 and against the Tuck Rule, but I thought about it, and the Impossible Dream kinda annoys me.  THEY FUCKING LOST!  Nobody seems to give a shit.  I wasn’t there, maybe I don’t get it, but it seems to me that this is a case of God handing you victory vs. God snatching it away.  If you pick against it you’re a straight up masochist.  Or just really old.   
(7) Bird’s steal vs. (2) Bruins win ‘11 Cup: I mean Bird’s probably gonna get obliterated here, but I’d be lying if I said the Bruins winning the Stanley Cup after the Pats, Sox and C’s already having established Boston as the best sports city in America didn’t feel like seeing Scal rain threes in garbage time back in the day.  Like, good for you!  The game’s already over!  Meanwhile, the Larry Legend ain’t dyin’ with me.  Nooooope.
