On Sunday night the New England Patriots found themselves once again punching their ticket to the Super Bowl. The Red Sox made sure to let the Pats know they had their backs.
Something that has become synonymous with the city of Boston in recent history is winning. The Red Sox have secured four World Series titles in the last 15 years and the New England Patriots are heading to their ninth Super Bowl of the Brady-Belichick era.
Add in championships from the Celtics and Bruins and things have been pretty damn good in Beantown. On Sunday night the Pats found themselves in a fight with the Kansas City Chiefs, and the Red Sox were there for every blow.
Throughout the day all of the Boston sports teams shared their support of Tom Brady and the Patriots and the Red Sox were some of the biggest supporters. With seemingly every member of the team chiming in with their positive vibes and support, Brady was able to lead New England to the promised land once again.
Earlier in the day, the Los Angeles Rams booked their flight to Atlanta for Super Bowl LIII in what would become a rematch of Super Bowl XXXVI. So once again Boston and LA will be facing off with the biggest prize in the sport on the line. The #BeatLA moniker came to prominence during the World Series and has made its way back to social media.
What was once a rivalry tied to the NBA between the Lakers and Celtics has now spilled over into the other major sports. The Red Sox would defeat the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-1 in the World Series this past October.
The Patriots also had to go through the Los Angeles Chargers to get to the AFC Championship game. Going into the Super Bowl Boston is up on the scoreboard 2-0 with Brady and the squad looking to complete the trifecta.
Once the Super Bowl teams were finalized social media became riddled with GIFs of Chris Sale striking out Manny Machado to win the World Series. Before the game on Sunday Boston legend, David Ortiz actually gave Brady some advice for when it’s time to hang up the jersey.
After that performance last night, I don’t think Brady will be heading to retirement anytime soon. Red Sox stars such as Alex Cora, Eduardo Rodriguez, J.D. Martinez, and reigning AL MVP Mookie Betts were all on the Patriots war wagon.
It’s a hell of a sight to see members of the Red Sox letting their Boston sports family know that they’re there for them. With two weeks until the big game in Atlanta, I wouldn’t be surprised if members of the Sox made their way to Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
Much like the Red Sox during their postseason charge, the Patriots were underdogs heading into Sunday evening’s AFC Championship match. Just another thing these two squads can bond over, and if Brady and the boys can put away the Rams in Atlanta, another trophy comes home.
Boston has become the ultimate title town and on February 3rd they’re looking to secure another piece of silverware. With the Red Sox gearing up to begin their own title defense in the upcoming weeks, look to the Pats to reciprocate the support for the boys of summer. One thing is for certain the respect and bond in the city between these teams is at an all-time high.
