Best Cities for Sports Fans

24/7 Wall St. Logo By Grant Suneson of 24/7 Wall St. | Slide 1 of 21: Being a sports fan can be tough. With at least 30 franchises in each league vying for a title, fans almost always end a season disappointed, or even heartbroken. But that can make the excitement of a playoff run or the joy of a championship that much better. Fans can have a good time cheering for their city's teams no matter where they are. But it's certainly easier -- and perhaps better -- to be a sports fan in some cities than others. Boston is the perfect example of a great sports city. All four of the teams that play in and around the area have won a title recently, and all seem to be in the hunt for another ring each year. Since 2000, Boston teams have won 10 championships. But not every city can be as fortunate as Boston. Phoenix, for instance, also has four different franchises, but none has been very successful. The Cardinals and Suns have been good at times, but they have never won a title. The Coyotes have only made the playoffs four times since 2001. Only the Diamondbacks have brought a title to the desert, winning the 2001 World Series.
