Study: 96-Percent of Boston Sports Fans Have No Idea How Annoying They Are

Due to an overwhelming inferiority complex stemming from decades of playing second fiddle to New York, the study found that Boston fans are woefully lacking in knowledge of how to respectfully conduct themselves when one of their teams actually wins. But worse, they revel in their boorish behavior and seem to find more enjoyment in flaunting their good fortune in the faces of others than they do in sincerely celebrating and relishing their teams’' achievements....

...And when the Red Sox finally won last year -- on the heels of two Patriots championships that were then followed by another in February -- it created a vicious cocktail that made even the most subdued and casual Boston sports fan into an obnoxious, drunken meathead, unbearably annoying to anyone with different rooting interests....

...Predictably, the ever-belligerent and cantankerous Boston fans do not agree with the study's findings.

"That is wicked stupid. People are just jealous. What --– did some Yankees fan make up that study? Probably, '‘cause the Yankees suck!"” said Tommy Reilly, a 27-year old Boston bartender. "Yeah, that's right. You heard me. The Yankees suck!"
