It wasn’t easy being a Boston sports fan Wednesday night, and many have taken the opportunity to troll the city.
The Boston Bruins, of course, fell to the St. Louis Blues 4-1 in Game 7 of the 2019 Stanley Cup Final at TD Garden. That prompted the Detroit Free Press to troll the city of Boston following the devastating loss.
If the first tweet wasn’t enough to get Boston fans riled up, the newspaper then goes on to remind them that Detroit won three championships when the Lions (NFL), Red Wings (NHL) and Tigers (MLB) all won titles during the 1935-36 league years.
If Boston had completed the feat, it would have been far more impressive, since, you know, when the Red Wings won their title back in 1936 there only were eight NHL teams competing for the Stanley Cup.
This thread created by the newspaper does seem rather salty, especially considering Boston’s sports success over the last 18 years.
