Your turn, Red Sox.

On the heels of the latest Patriots Super Bowl win, it's the Red Sox who are up next.

What a bit of symmetry, huh? On Sunday night, the Pats win their sixth Super Bowl and on Monday morning, the Red Sox' truck heads for Fort Myers.

No overlap, no waiting. One day, it's football season, and the next, it's time for baseball. No chance to catch your breath.

Together, the two teams have combined for an astonishing 10 championships since 2002. In New England, you don't have to wait long for a parade -- and that's not counting the contributions from the Bruins and Celtics.
