This Week’s City…

We’ve been waiting for this one…


New York City is host to SIX Big Four US Sports franchises, more than any other city in the country. While the entire city unites around their NBA and NHL franchises, the Knicks and the Rangers, the battle lines are drawn for their two MLB teams and their two NFL teams. While the Yankees and the Giants have enjoyed success both recently and in their histories, the Mets and the Jets have enjoyed magical and seemingly miraculous runs to their handful of championships. The emotional difference between these fan bases have caused each other to downright hate one another, while in the mean time creating two complex and drastically different sports cultures under the umbrella of one large city.

We are extending our coverage for New York to the next two weeks, so expect a whole bunch of everything over that time period!
