    Duck boats just came out 3 months ago and duck boats about to come out again when the Bruins win. Bruins won, then Red Sox then Patriots and its about to be Bruins again back to back. It's Boston in the last 2 decades and it's not even close.

    When cities have to throw a victory parade, the first thing they do is call Boston for advice!!!

    Kellerman's logic would only work if the cities themselves owned the franchises and they have to allocate resources to each one. They fact that NY has more teams means they have more opportunities to win championships, so his argument literally works in the exact opposite from his point. Man that was a stupid thing to say. Boston has 1 team per major sport (with previously 1 other baseball team, Braves, and one other football team, Redskins, from the past), New York has 2 football, 2 baseball (with at least 2 more that left, I know 2 for a fact but blanking if anyone other than Giants & Dodgers), 2 basketball teams and 2 hockey teams. Not to mention that Boston has had much more success in the FA & salary cap eras than NY (before then it was way easier to win).

    And Boston has won two more titles since this video was made a year ago. Sox won, Pats won, and the Bruins just made it to the Stanley Cup Finals.

    Shut up Kellerman. NY needs double the teams to beat Boston. You're an idiot. Each team is owned by different people. They don't share anything. Your argument LITERALLY makes no sense and don't even start bringing stupid College sports into this. They are irrelevant.

    Fast forward one year later. Yet max would still say it’s New York. Hey, yanks have lots of championships but the team has been in existence since the early 20th century. It’s not even a debate, Boston is the greatest sports city in the Western Hemisphere. But since max hates on his rival city I say Stephan A is the real reporter. His non biased knowledge in all sports puts him on a different playing field than any reporter out of ESPN. Stephan A Smith for president!!

    Philly has the most heart and it always will. Sure, you can measure titles and come to your conclusion that way but honestly Philadelphia just has this bite, this underdog mentality that no other city really has. The fans are also more passionate there. Philadelphia is fucking awesome and fuck you if you don’t think so. πŸ¦…

    Boston is the better Sports town because they only have one team in each league while NY has 2 baseball teams, 2 NBA teams, 3 NFL teams and 4 NHL teams (if you Include the New Jersey Devils) and if you take away the Yankees' World Series you would have 4 Islanders Stanley cups 3 Devils Stanley cups, 4 Rangers Stanley Cups, 2 Knicks NBA titles, 2 Mets World Series, 1 Jets Super Bowl, 4 Giants Super Bowls and 4 Bills Super Bowl appearances (and not a win). Max Kellerman only said that because he's from New York.

    If we go with Max's logic, New York has a population ten to twenty times the size of Boston, so in reality, they could have five teams in each sport and Boston would still be better. He is such an idiot, I stopped watching this show because of this clown.
