Sporting News is out with it's annual rankings of U.S. Sports Cities and Chicago comes in at No. 1 B)

Chicago No. 1 Sports City for 2006

I think the USOC should use this ranking to come to their final conclusion as to who the 2016 candidate should be. :P

But they still need to bite the bullet for $700 mil and BUILD a new stadium. Dish that stupid 'temp' and double-stadium ideas; and raze the ugly Soldier Field afterwards. That'll get the IOC's attention fer shure.

Just checked the list. That is the most subjective list ever. First they say they cut off the hyphenated-conjoined areas, so NO Washington DC-Baltimore or SF-Oakland-SJ areas. But then if you look at the list they still have Dallas-Fort Worth; Oakland has been chopped off from San Francisco (down to #43 -- which is why I've said, by itself, SF is really more an artsy-fartsy city than any other) but the strange list adjoins Oakland WITH Berkeley!! Huh? ANd all those inconsistencies go on...

Please - somebody over on the SF threads referenced this list when SF was listed at #5 last year. Just thought I would bring things up to date B)

Who's going to take that ranking seriously anyways? The IOC? Hahaha

Sure - why I bet when Anita is all over this! :D

oh please everyone stop whining!...this is soooo trivial and will have no impact on this race, not to mention SF and Chicago both have a lot more than some stupid list to worry about right now....

Besides I believe that list is weighted towards (1) NFL football; (2) major league baseball -- both sports NOT on the Olympic slate; (3) the NBA (though 2 and 3 could be interchangeable); (4) ice hockey; (5) mud wrestling; (6) MLS.

Let's see -- but SF is #1 in bocce!! :lol:

Well, it does, actualy. Its an Americain study, and I am shure the NCAA got about ten time more atention that the CFL, not to mentione CIS (the canadian equivalent to the NCAA).
