[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Celtic Dominance : This is really funny. The Boston team with much recent success is ________ Since 2000: Championships in the LA metro area (10): Lakers (2000, 2001, 2002, 2009, 2010), Angels (2002), Ducks (2007), Kings (2012), USC (2003, 2004) Championships in the Boston metro area (7): Patriots (2001, 2003, 2004), Red Sox (2004, 2007), Celtics (2008), Bruins (2011) LA leads Boston by 1 even if you just count the pro teams. Including the two high profile college sports (football, basketball), it's not close...

Can't compare apples to apples as we, you have shown above, have 4 major professional teams, Sox, MLB, Celtics, NBA, Pats, NFL & Bruins(Hockey).
Please leave out the college team of USC unless you want to include high school, middle school & grammar school teams too.
LA metro has Dodgers & Angels, 2 MLB, Lakers & Clippers, 2 NBA & Ducks & Kings ( 2 Hockey). TOTAL 6
You have not had an NFL team since Rams left in 1994 and the Raiders were there from 1982-1994.
The closest other city with pro teams to Boston is NYC 225 miles away while San Diego is only 125 miles away. I'm sure many LA metro fans also consider San Diego teams as theirs too but not too much champion success there here.
Sorry fellow Boston fans but I must say this, where I live in San Francisco, we've had a few championship teams too---we basically don't like LA teams either !!!
