Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

It was perhaps inevitable that Boston’s first World Series win in 86 years would come against a team from St. Louis:

Weird fact in case you missed it: The Celtics won their first championship against St. Louis (1957); the Bruins broke a 41-year Stanley Cup drought against St. Louis (1970); and the Patriots won their first Super Bowl against St. Louis (2002). Hey, I’m just the messenger.

I guess this means the Bruins will have to count on meeting the Blues in the Stanley Cup finals, if Beantown ever hopes to get another hockey championship. (That’s assuming the NHL ever plays another game…)

The bad news? St. Louis currently doesn’t have an NBA franchise. So unless it gets one (not out of the question), the Celtics championship drought will continue indefinitely.

As far as World Series wins go, St. Louis can mollify itself in the knowledge that they helped extend the Red Sox curse two times, before finally helping the BoSox banish it.
