Boston is a big sports town and has gained the nickname “Title Town”. We have a baseball, football, basketball, and hockey team. In the past 13 years, Boston has taken home 11 titles between all of these teams. During these years the Boston Red Sox (who plays down the street from Wentworth) have won three World Series, the Boston Bruins won a Stanley Cup, the Boston Celtics have won the NBA Finals, and the New England Patriots have won four Superbowl championships.
That most recent Super Bowl featured the New England Patriots taking on the Seattle Seahawks. The school hosted a number of Super Bowl parties (one in each dorm building). The office of Student Affairs hosted a Superbowl party at which delicious food was provided. Not only were the snacks great, but there were also raffles at the end of each quarter for Patriots gear and even a big screen TV. The game was intense but it was a blast!
A few weeks later the Patriots had a rolling rally parade, which happened to be down the street from Wentworth. I went and it was so exciting! I have always been a huge Pats fan and have watched their Super Bowl parades in the past on television but to be there in person, was amazing. The parade was about 20 minutes long and featured many Patriots favorites, from Bob Kraft (the owner of the team) to Tom Brady, the beloved quarterback and everyone in between. The players and Patriots staff traveled through the tour route on Boston’s duck boats. It was unbelievable to be so close to all of them! I can’t wait for the next championship! It’s great to be a Bostonian!
