    In which city, Boston or Philadelphia, do you think it's currently more exciting to be a sports fan?

    Philly:
    1) Eagles in first place in NFC East and in the running for the #2 seed in the NFC
    2) Flyers (who made cup finals last year) sit atop the Eastern Conference with the best record in the NHL
    3) The Phillies' rotation next year will include Halladay and Lee... enough said.
    4) Shit, even the Sixers at 9-15 are still only 1 1/2 games behind the current 8th seeded team in the East.

    Boston:
    1) Patriots have come out of nowhere to be 11-2 and in position to grab the #1 seed in the AFC (clearly exceeding all reasonable pre-season expectations).
    2) The RedSox aquisitions of Gonzalez and Crawford, combined with the Yankee's hot-stove FAILS (including the Lee snub), make them clear favorites in the AL East next year.
    3) The Celtics are atop the Eastern conference and look'n really tough to beat if they stay healthy
    4) The Bruins will probably make the playoffs.

    Could be Eagles/Pats super bowl and Phillies/Sox WS.

    But it's definitely pretty damn exciting to be a philly sports fan right now, I can't lie.

    Its early...and close, but I would have to go with Boston by a hair

    Pats look like serious threats for the SB and well.....we know about the Eagles in NFC championship games

    Like the Phils as Series favorites...Sox still have to get through the AL

    Celts have it over Sixers/ Flyers over Bruins
