World Series And Super Bowl/NFL Crowns Same City/Same Year Notes

February 5, 2019

Boston became the first city/area to twice have the World Series and Super Bowl winner (the Red Sox and Patriots respectively) in the same year, having also done so in 2004.

The city was denied the feat after the 2007 NFL season, after a Red Sox title, as with the 2018 crown, clinched on the road on Sunday October 28th, when the New York Giants beat an (18-0) Pats team in the Super Bowl.

New York with a total of three teams involved, has thrice won the World Series followed by the NFL crown in a championship game.

It happened in 1938, 1956 (Mickey Mantle’s Triple Crown season) and 1986, the first two with the Yankees winning the World Series and the Giants winning a home NFL Title game, the one in ’86 a Mets’ World Series and Giants’ Supe win.

 

Bill Belichick, pictured here for the second straight day, after winning his 8th Super Bowl (6 as head coach of the New England Patriots and two as a New York  Giants’ defensive coordinator), was part of the two titles/same city feats of Boston in ’04 and ’18 as well as New York doing so in ’86.
