With the Celtics making the NBA finals, making each Boston pro sports team a playoff team, here is a question...
Has a city ever had at least one team in at least four of the five major sports make it to the playoffs in the same calendar year before this year?
The 2008 Boston Celtics in the NBA finals
The 2007 Boston Red Sox in the World Series
The 2008 New England Patriots in the Super Bowl
The 2007 New England Revolution in the MLS Cup
The 2008 Boston Bruins in NHL playoffs
I'm asking. I do not know the answer...

Putting the Revs in there is a bit of a stretch. There's what like a dozen MLS teams? That rules out a ton of markets.
