Over the last five months, Bleacher Report has taken on an experiment to find the best cities in North America to be a sports fan.
First, we removed all bias. If you love sports, but don't have an allegiance to a particular team or sport, where would be the best place to live to get a full, enjoyable experience as a sports fan?
We broke each city down into eight categories: the number of teams there, the success of those teams in the past five years, how nice the stadiums are, fan passion, how good the media is, tradition, and general fan experience.
