Best Sports City
Detroit won this year's honor despite not one of its four major sports having won a league title. Still, the postseason runs of the Tigers, Red Wings and Pistons was enough to put them at No. 1.
The top-10 reads: Detroit, New York, Dallas-Fort Worth, Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, Denver, Phoenix, Philadelphia, Minneapolis.
On the heels of a pair of national championships, Gainesville finished No. 12.
Baton Rouge had a respectable placing at No. 26 on this year's list. It was the second-highest ranking for a college town.
New Orleans came in at No. 35 behind Buffalo, but ahead of Knoxville.
