But today, the city is celebrated as an American sports capitol.
And, this FREE sports comic book on Boston sports icons is wicked good.
To many sports fans, Boston is considered the greatest sports town in the United States.
It has earned the enviable moniker by emerging as a sports mecca that produces Hall of Fame athletes and championship professional teams.
Once renowned for the revolutionary site of the Boston Tea Party and the courageous midnight ride of Paul Revere, Boston’s current popularity is rivaled by its retinue of noteworthy athletic accomplishments.
Boston sports fans proudly rave about title winning home town teams like the Celtics, the Bruins, the Red Sox and the Patriots.
Also rich in academia, this vibrant New England city lays claim to some of the most prestigious halls of higher learning. It has fathered Heads of State, Nobel Laureates and Captains of Industry.
Despite its historic, academic, political and business laurels, today’s Boston may still be better loved for its sports-centric culture.
The Hub City cherishes not only historic Faneuil Hall and the legendary Old North Church. With a regional pride that runs deep in athletics, it also venerates the hallowed sports venues of Fenway Park and the old Boston Garden.
