Regarding best sports cities, you have to look at haw well a city supports it's teams. In LA for example, the teams are alomst like a showpiece for celebrities to get more face time (how many times have you seen a laker game without them showing at least 8 celebs at least 10 times a game?). When the teams do well, the crowds are OK, if not, the crowds are dead. Same thing with Miami. The best sports fans and cities to me are Pittsburgh, Cleveland, St Louis, Chicago, Boston, Houston, Philly and Buffalo. Those cities have fans that will show up no matter the teams record and whatever the weather. They are the diehards.

You obviously are not familiar with the post-lockout crowds the Blues had, or the small home crowds the Rams have had as of late. The STL Cards are AMAZING fans, top 2 or 3 is baseball. Outside of that however, St. Louis is a mediocre sports town at best.

Philly is number 1. The city lives off of their sports teams.

Are you proud of that? It only displays how pathetic your fans are. I bet Joe Torre misses that full house on a rainy, damp, cool day in the big city on the streets of the Bronx. Nothin' but right.

what's your problem, you always trying to prove your point through Youtube, which is so lame. Youtube has got to be the worse resource for proof, most of the stuff on there is fake anyway. The fact that you think anyone is going to look at you dumb New York propaganda films is so hilarious, HA HA AH!!!!!!! ROTFL AAAAAAAAAAAAhhhhhh!!!!!
