300sportingnews.jpgThe Sporting News is out with the latest edition of its Best Sports Cities list, and Boston checks in at second behind Chicago.

Boston has topped this list four times, in 2008, 2005, 2004, and 2002. In the latest edition, Chicago dethroned Pittsburgh, which fell out of the Top 10 entirely. The list is based on sports achievements from the summer of 2009 through this past summer.

Apparently a Blackhawks championship and a rising Bears team tipped the scales in Chicago's favor, not to mention the fact the Bulls are looking pretty good. Of course, to get there, the Bulls had to do a little talent-raid in Boston and acquire former Celtics assistant coach Tom Thibodeau as their head coach.

This year's Top 10 is (surrounding areas are included): 1. Chicago; 2. Boston; 3. Los Angeles; 4. Philadelphia; 5. Dallas; 6. New York; 7. Phoenix; 8. Atlanta; 9. Denver; 10. Detroit.


Past No. 1 sports cities:

2009—Pittsburgh
2008—Boston
2007—Detroit
2006—Chicago
2005—Boston
2004—Boston
2003—Anaheim/Los Angeles
2002—Boston
2001—New York
2000—St. Louis
1999—New York
1998—Detroit
1997—Denver
1995—Denver
1994—Cleveland
1993—Chicago
