I'm a hockey fan and I have been reading about the Washington Capitals' fire sale. They have given away Jagr, Konowalchuk, Lang, Nylander, Bondra and Gonchar since October. They are basically icing a junior team now.
This got me thinking about the Washingto Bullet/Wizards - they suck as much as the Caps.
If is wasn't for the Redskins, Washington would be the worst sports city in history (and they want an MLB team??).
What are the best and the worst sports cities out there? Take into account fan support, success on the field/ice and history/tradition.
As much as I dislike their teams, I would have to say that Boston has to be near the top. The Bruins, Sox, Pats and Celtics all have proud traditions, are fairly successful and have great (even though uninformed and inarticulate - no offense) fans. If it was not for Harry Sinden they would be the clear cut number 1.
As for worst, you can't do much worse than Pheonix. The Suns, Coyotes, Diamondbacks and Cards are all pretty sucky, no tradition to speak of, lousy uniforms and not much fan support. If it wasn't for the one WS and Gretzky they would be definite basement dwellers.
