So again the Bruins ratings are quite good but let's not go overboard and
claim it is a hockeytown way before it is a basketball town.
Bruins are just experiencing a big high.
And please don't paint Boston as always being a baseball town because it wasn't, even in my lifetime, I watched Boston go from being a Bruin town to the Celtics to the Sox than the Pats (one of which I never thought I would see).
The Bruins were VERY popular at different times, the 30s/40s Cup runs, than again in the late 60s/70s/early 80s where they dominated all things sports than were overtaken by the Larry Bird era Celts. Same with the Sox, up and down. And you're currently watching just how unpopular the Red Sox can become. Watch this season, this is how it was except for certain times.
