Best: Detroit
Worst: Atlanta, IMO. It seemed like no one took pride in ANY of the teams when I was last there.

Best: Detroit

Red Wings and Pistons are two of the best franchises in the U.S.

The Lions are probably the worst franchise in all of professional sports, yet Ford Field sold out every single game for 7 years until this year. An 0-16 season makes it a little tougher to sell out every game. Even Detroit can only take so much losing

Best:
Boston (cmaaaaaaaaaaan)
Philly (currently the only competition for Boston for best teams in the 4 majors. Probably even have a slight edge.)
Detroit (Wings. Pistons. And when a city is falling apart there are still ANY supporters of a team like the Lions you know it means something.)
Chicago (It seems like Bulls fans have packed up and left but DA BEARS, an original 6 team, and 2 great MLB teams....I mean freakin wrigley....gotta mention chi-town)

ALL of those cities have rabid fans so I am not gunna even get into who has the best....but.....Boston.

Honorable Mentions:
NYC (it would be hard for them NOT to be with so many teams and so many people)
St. Louis (.....or so I have been told. Cardinals? yep. Blues? suprisingly. Rams? i dunno.)
Pittsburgh (mostly just the Steelers but thats enough)

Worst:
Everyone else.

Best: Pittsburgh - if the Pirates could ever get back to their 70s pride, this city rocks. The Steelers are one of the best organizations in sports.
