If you were raised on a steady diet of Boston area sports anytime before the last 10 or 12 years you just always end up cheering on the underdog, the people’s competitor, the David against the Goliath. It’s been bred into your consciousness.

Boston area sports have always been a significant part of my pop-culture diet and I just can’t help but to dig the hell out of stories like this. Kudos 261! Way to open up sports to more and more people. Way to make positive change happen.
