It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that Massachusetts is serious about sports. Heck, you can’t even walk down a block without seeing some Sox/Pats/Celtics/B’s gear. Boston is one of the world’s greatest sports towns, and the fervor carries through the entire state. At the TD Garden, you can watch the Celtics shoot threes or the Bruins smash into the boards. The Red Sox take on the competition at historic Fenway Park (and you can scout out future Sox with the Class A Lowell Spinners). Out in Foxboro, Gillette Stadium hosts the New England Patriots, along with the New England Revolution soccer team. For something a little different, check out the Boston Cannons for lacrosse or the Boston Thirteens for rugby.
