Three in the top twelve

For some reason, the worldwide leader started sending me ESPN the Magazine a couple of years ago. In that time, I think I’ve read a total of about five pages of the publication (giant waste of pretty paper.)

Anyway, in that last issue I got, they ranked every team in each of the four major team sports in terms of fan satisfaction, current roster of the team, ownership, affordability, that kind of thing. Here are some notables from the list:

Indianapolis Colts-1
Detroit Tigers-7
Detroit Pistons-8
Detroit Red Wings-12
Detroit Lions-120
New York Knicks-122 (dead last)

The Lions also got the worst possible ranking for “title track.”

The whole piece is only three pages long (for reasons that escape me) and they don’t break down each team’s scores. Not sure I would place the Wings ahead of the Tigers and Stones, though their ticket prices are probably high by NHL standards.
