Sports fans in Boston have been known to call their city “Title-Town” for their professional sports teams winning ways.
They’ve even dared to called themselves “the City of Champions” as a couple years ago the New England Patriots and Boston Red Sox won their respective championships.
But they got it wrong as the Celtics lost in the playoffs and Bruins lost in the Stanley Cup Finals.
Boston had only two championships in one season whereby Detroit has actually had three – something no other city can yet claim.
The Tigers, Lions and Red Wings all came out on top in one magical season way back in 1935-36.
There were no Pistons at the time.
As Detroiters observe “City of Champions Day” this week, One Detroit’s Bill Kubota has more on the story.
