Boston teams sleep their way to the top.
Boston has won 10 pro sports championships since the turn of the century, easily more than any other U.S. city. What’s the secret? It’s probably just sleep.
The top athletes and teams in the city seem obsessed with getting shut-eye. Tom Brady goes to bed at 8:30 p.m. every night and is sure to get at least nine hours in per session. Former Celtics star Paul Pierce used to sleep in a hyperbaric oxygen chamber to catch z’s. The Red Sox are now getting into the act as they are going to have “sleep rooms” set up at Fenway Park, according to the Boston Globe. The team is having players test mattresses and they’re “getting fitted for pillows” so that they can nap prior to games.
No word on what these sleep rooms will be used for after games, but let’s just say players can probably just skip the trip to the club now and have their “friends” over to the ballpark instead. What could go wrong?
