Favorite Boston team? Favorite player?

Easily, the Celtics. But I go way back when there were far fewer teams and the talent was much more concentrated. There would be many favorite players on Red Auerbach. If I had to pick one it would be John Havlicek. Most of the time he wasn't even a starter but he was killer coming off the bench. Havilcek was one of the best finishers ever.

If you come from Boston, when and where did you live there?

Belmont, about 1972 to 1978. But before that I lived in Amherst, New Hampshire and worked for several Route 128 companies starting in 1969.

Best moment as a Boston sports fan? Worst moment?

Best? The Patriots win over the Rams in Superbowl XXXVI in February 2002. This was five months after 911 and St. Louis was a 14-point favorite. It was the Pats third Superbowl victory and last, so far. Worst moment? Easily Bill Buckner's booting the easy grounder at first base in game 6 of the World Series against the Mets. Had he caught it and tagged the bad the Sox would have won the series. Obviously, with the Sox there were tons of equally worst moments. Bucky Dent's home run in 1978, giving the Yankee's the pennant, Tony Perez' two home runs in the seventh game of the 1975 Series to give the Reds the Series win. The NY Giants come from behind wins in the last two Patriots Superbowl appearances also qualify for some kind of award too.

How did you hear about the group (meetup, friend, Little Lou's, web search, other)?

Introduction

I only lived in Boston (Belmont, actually) for a few years back in the 70s. But I have been a Boston sports fan for most of my life (72 years so far). I'm from the Philadelphia area but those teams never did much for me. I can walk to Little Lou's.
