    An Uncommon Wealth of Success Hits Boston **Triple Crown Run**

    Good read on Boston's run on the Triple Sports Crown.
    Hopefully Minny will enjoy this feat someday.

    From Article:

    No city, let alone Boston, has ever fielded a threesome in the most popular national team sports as dominant as the current Patriots, Red Sox and Celtics.

    That inspired Carl Morris, a statistics professor across the Charles River at Harvard, to calculate the chances of a monofranchised city having the three best teams in one year: about 1 in 29,000.

    “I’m not sure if people here realize how unlikely this thing really is,” Morris said. “No city is ever going to see anything like this again.”

    The rigors of Spartan life. Leonidas is cast out into the wild, and survives the harsh winter to return to his home, when he is crowned King ....a Viking!

    A little quick on the draw these guys are. They should not write about the triple crown until the Pats win and the Celtics are in the finals.
