Forbes’ Tom Van Riper just named Atlanta America’s Most Miserable Sports Town. Seriously. We climbed to First Place in the magazine’s ranking, after languishing in second place last year. You can read the article in its entirety here, but don’t feel too smug—if you live or cheer for a team in the rest of the Ten Most Miserable list:
5. San Diego
9. Kansas City
Probably don’t need to add that this assessment comes from another of those Yankee-types from the Northeast, do I? I’ll stick with my response when ESPN dished a similar diss not so long ago.
