You can even be biased in your opinions! Tell us what you think is the best sports city AND/OR region in the world, and why. Any reasons, really: teams, championships, fans, etc. I love sports, and I think it's great how they can pump up an entire city. College and high school sports can also be included. Feel free to be a homer for your teams; I think it'd be cool to see how fellow BITOGers feel about their teams. Gotta love a good sports city. So, I'll go first: Detroit/Southeastern Michigan All 4 major sports (basketball, hockey, baseball, football). Tigers: went to the world series in 2006, and have been a competent team since then. This year, they won the American League Central division, and are deep into the ALCS. Both in 2006 and 2011, we beat the Yankees in playoff series also, including a deciding game 5 in New York this year. Red Wings: 20 straight years of making the playoffs, 4 Stanley Cups since 1997, and a favorite to make the playoffs/win the Cup every single year. In my opinion, the Wings also have the best goal horn in the league Pistons: went to the Eastern Conference finals 6 years in a row, including 2 trips to the Finals, and one championship in ’04. Lions: one of the worst NFL teams in recent (and not so recent) history, BUT… still sold out the majority of home games during that awful streak, in the Pontiac Silverdome mind you, which was, for quite some time, the largest capacity stadium in the league. Now that the team is winning – yes, winning – the entire Metro-Detroit area has never been more ecstatic about the team. The Monday Night Football game this past Monday was the loudest, most insane event of any type I have ever been to! College sports: Both the University of Michigan and the Michigan State University have good, competitive college football teams, as well as good basketball teams. Unlike many places in the country, Southeastern Michigan is one of the few places that has a die-hard fanbase for both professional and college sports. Additionally, we are a part of the U of M/Ohio State football rivalry, considered by many (obviously, depends on who you ask) to be the best sports rivalry in the world. High school football: While this isn’t wildly popular here, it still gets talked about quite a bit on the local levels, and occasionally on the local radio station. Auto racing: twice a year, we host Nascar events at MIS in Brooklyn, MI. And, returning next year, is the Indy Grand Prix on Belle Isle in Detroit. We also used to host other racing events on Belle Isle, as well as Formula 1 events in downtown Detroit. Radio: Detroit has the number #1 rated sports talk show in the nation in the afternoon time segment. The morning and mid-day programs are also excellent; a great forum to debate and hear about our sports. I also feel that all of our play-by-play and color commentators on our games are great, on both radio and television. All done!
