Now I don’t live in Cincinnati, but I do pull for the Reds and the Bengals since both are the closest home team to my home in Virginia.  So it gives me great pleasure knowing that I rank in Forbes’ top 5!

    or bottom five depending on your perspective.

    Why do they have a picture of Daryl Thompson for Cincinnati? Why not have Dusty or Mike Brown.

    How can Indianapolis be 3rd worst?

    The article and method for determining worst cities is pretty bad. They only look at championships of the most recent completed season (so Colts Super Bowl win ignored – only NFL championship goes to NY) plus they are obviously merging the Pacers terrible 82 game record with the Colts great 16-game record.

    I can’t argue that Indy is top 5, especially since they only have 2 of the big 4 “big league” sports leagues, but the Colts recent history alone should keep them out of the bottom 10, and definitely bottom 5.

    At least you didn’t end up on the Dark Side like Chad and root for the Steelers. And for that I am thankful (and I feel your pain).

    As a sports fan, I’d rather live NOWHERE else other than Indianapolis. We have arguably the best NFL franchise in the league, two world-class racing events, amazing facilities, and affordable tickets. Not to mention class acts like Manning, Dungy, and Bird. We host numerous Final Fours, and there is even a Super Bowl on the horizon!

    Few places can match Indianapolis when it comes to sports, hands down.
