Reflecting On 2017: The Year In SportsPlay
As we race towards the end of 2017, let's take a moment to look back at the Year in Sports in Boston and Beyond. There were big games and big wins for local teams, but so much of the sports collided with social issues and politics this year.
Some of the Top Sports Stories of the Year:
- Patriots win Super Bowl LI
- NFL Protests against Police Brutality (and President Trump's comments)
- Racism at Fenway Park and another protest
- Celtics rally after Gordon Hayward's injury and leading the Eastern Conference
- Women's pay negotiations in USA Hockey and Soccer
