    For the 3rd year in a row -per Forbes Magazine.

    With one championship - the NBA Sonics in 1979 - to show for 111 combined MLB, NFL and NBA seasons. (NHL was also included)

    Atlanta, Phoenix, Buffalo and San Diego came in 2-3-4-5.

    Not so sure I'd measure it just by championships alone.

    I have a hard time feeling sorry for Seattle. That town is rooting for the sickest hockey team in the league right now. Yeah the Mariners suck, but at least the Seahawks made it into the playoffs and had a first-round upset. Plus they've got their new and decent soccer team which was getting some of the best attendance in the MLS last year. The Sonics...what a fucking disgrace the way that went down. I do feel for them on that.

    But Cleveland has to be the shittiest sports town to live in right now. The Browns. The Cavs. The Indians. That says it all. There's nothing for them to look forward to in the near future.

    Not sure why Cleveland was snubbed.

    Havent had a title since the Browns in 1964.

    So why is Atlanta ranked?

    They had the Braves Dynasty (that some thought would never end) the up-and-coming Falcons

    (true - the Hawks blow)

    Miami should be in the rankings somewhere - Dolphins, underachieving Heat, Canes who got PUNKED by ND in the Sun Bowl)

    Crappy fan base -bandwaggoners who support winners - then ditch them ie Florida Marlins lol

    The same Forbes Magazine named Stockton, CA plain America's Most Miserable City - period.

    Don't think they will get many arguments.

    In most other cities - a team like the Seahawks being the 3rd worst bet to win the Super Bowl by the oddsmakers in 2012 (after winning the NFC West and beating the Saints in the playoffs) would cause on outrage.

    Nobody seemed to care in Seattle.

    Loser sports fan mentality - translates to the teams performance.

    The mariners blow -the Sonics have gone to OKC - so the fans in Seattle latch on to the Storm in WNBA and the Sounders in MLS.

    Even the UW Huskies are on-the-bubble to make the Big Dance - despite being consensus preseason favorites to win the Pac 10.
