Best Sports City

The Sporting News released its annual "Best Of" issue on Wednesday, and topping the list of Best Sports City? Detroit. It was the second time the Motor City took the top spot. It won the honor in 1998.

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.
