Atlanta Tops Forbes’ “America’s Most Miserable Sports City” List

If you’re a Atlanta fan, come on down, because the combined ineptitude of the Braves, Falcons and Hawks (and defected Thrashers) has earned Georgia’s capital the dubious honor of being America’s “Most Miserable Sports City,” per Forbes. ATL beat out other downtrodden cities like Seattle (which should get bonus points because of the dynasty brewing in Oklahoma City), Phoenix, San Diego and Buffalo.

1. Atlanta
2. Seattle
3. Phoenix
4. Buffalo
5. San Diego
6. Houston
7. Denver
8. Cleveland
9. Kansas City
10. Cincinnati

ESPN’s Rob Parker wrote a rather scathing piece about the Atlanta sports scene back in January. His douche-tastic thesis revolved around the fact that Hotlanta is a city of transplants, and that few residents actually care about their sports teams. If true, it’s a good thing that they have other teams to pay attention to, because the local squads don’t seem to be cutting it.
