G Man
The Penguins have a decent fan base as well.

I've seen sporting events in many other cities. I think the fans in other cities are WAY more laid back than they are in NY. Yankee and Met fans make the biggest deals about every little thing in a game, lol. I'm not a fan of either of those teams. It's quite annoying to me since the only NY team I like is the Rangers Us NYers are loud and obnoxious at games.

But I still think that Red Sox fans in Boston top any other city when it comes to baseball.

It's pretty hard for me to decide between Boston, Chicago (mostly the Cubs), New York and St. Louis in this respect. They all have extremely dedicated fans, but each city offers a slightly different flavor of baseball mania. In any case, in my opinion, there's nothing quite like going to a summer game in each of these cities. That is essentially my definition of heaven.

shouldn't be).
Hockey (Ditto)
Baseball (Miami - where the one and only Mariners fan lives- and Pittsburg -
not much better and a pathetic fan showing for a team that has beeen around
forever and has been pretty successful overall during those years)
Football (St. Louis - fair weather fans who complain alot and SF for the same
reason)
it's all about how the rams are doing, a couple years ago, when they were the best team in football, the stadium was packed and st. louis was rated sports capital usa by sporting news. now the rams suck

Best: Minneapolis/St Paul (for the fans, not the teams)

Worst: Denver (for the teams, not the fans)

Once again, not including Philadelphia here is ludicrous.

Fantastic job, another person who knows nothing about the snowball incident! Yayyyyyyy!

Nice job again by the media.

As far as Palin, I'm a Republican, and it was deserved. Stupid move by Snider.
