Recently, Joe Gill – creator of the website Boston Sports Then and Now – put together Boston Sports Blogapalooza, a gathering of bloggers, writers, sports fans and Boston sports media.

During this event, the New England Sports Network (NESN) was present – and polled a number of the event’s participants, inquiring about who each felt was the biggest and greatest sports legend of all-time in the city of Boston.

Specifically, yours truly was present promoting The Wife Hates Sports.

So, who did I pick as the biggest legend in the history of Boston sports?

Well, first off… it was a tough call – a real tough call, as the city is rich in sports history.

The decision was made easily once inquired who “the wife” would hate most.

That made the answer a piece of cake… as the wife’s passionate frustration and hate for baseball pushed me towards the Red Sox – and well, arguably the best hitter of all-time… yep, you guessed it – “Teddy Ballgame”.

Ted Williams – the last .400 hitter in baseball history – gave so much to the Fenway faithful throughout his illustrious career.

For my response – as well as a number of others…

I’d also like to thank Joe Gill for putting together Boston Sports Blogapalooza, as well as the great people I met recently at the event.

In addition, I’d like to thank for helping promote the site, via the aforementioned video.

Finally, who would you pick as the greatest sports legend ever in Boston?  Ted Williams?  Larry Bird?  Bobby Orr?  Someone else?  Chime in below!
