This Just In: We’re No. 3!
In its latest rankings of Best Sports Cities, The Sporting News today pegged our fair burg No. 3. Behind Boston (Duh) and Detroit (What? Oh yeah, hockey).

Value it at your own discretion.
“The Cowboys are Super Bowl contenders, and the Mavs and Stars are top-notch, too,” says Hille, who has coordinated the rankings since ‘96. “TCU is a force on the college football scene, plus the Rangers bring an electrifying story like Josh Hamilton to the sports pages.”
