Thankfully, as reader Adam notes, Grantland.com is here to put us back in our place and bestowed upon us the Saddest Sports City award. We were fourth in the initial rankings a month ago. But we knew we could get over the top, and we did. Per the piece:
We have a winner! Minneapolis was on all but two lists in some form, but it didn't get a single first-place vote. Chris Ryan had them fourth:
"Delmon Young just sent you a postcard from scenic DETROIT. Also? Donovan McNabb is going to cost Leslie Frazier his job."
And for the parting shot, we turn back to Ole Faithful, House.
"Can't be no. 1, the Lynx are in the WNBA Finals! Is it Donovan McNabb's fault that he continues to do Donovan McNabb things anymore?"
So that is that. Congratulations to Minneapolis, the saddest city on the sporting landscape. Come back next month if you find yourself feeling too happy for your own good.
We're No. 1. Wear it, folks.
