Here’s the score on Boston traffic.


The day I graduated from high school I got stuck in Celtics/Red Sox traffic and sat on the Mass. Ave. Bridge for half an hour. As I pushed myself out of the cab to rush into the Prudential to make a dinner reservation (almost) on time, I heard someone behind me say, “Thank you, Boston sports. Win or lose, at least we know there will always be traffic.”
