Could last week have been the best week in Boston sports history?

It started on Sunday the 28th (actually, early Monday the 29th) with the Red Sox win in game 4 to sweep the Colorado Rockies and win the World Series. The Rolling Rally through Boston followed on Tuesday afternoon, as hundreds of thousands of Red Sox fans lined the streets between Fenway Park and City Hall Plaza to salute the new World Series Champions.

The Celtics took over the spotlight on Friday, crushing the Washington Wizards (am I the only one who still thinks of them as the "Bullets" first?) at the Gahden. It was a successful debut for the new Big Three of Kevin Garnett, Ray Allen and Paul Pierce. The Celtics followed that up with their first road win on Sunday, with Allen hitting a 3-pointer with less than three seconds left to defeat Toronto.

The Patriots added the cherry on the sundae with yesterday's epic comeback win against the Colts. The image of a frustrated Peyton Manning on the bench while the Pats ran down the clock is one New England fans can carry around with them for a while (at least until the AFC Championship game).

A great week, all in all. Can anyone come up with a better one?
