If you want to get into the top 3 sports cities, winning 2 Super Bowls in 4 years is a good way to do it. With the @Chiefs win this year, KC rockets up to the #3 city in our champs rankings, and the city records its all-time high in terms of local team success.

On the other side of the coin, Philadephia now is the only city to lose 3 championship finals (Eagles, Union & Phillies) in the same year – and they've done it twice. But in 1980, Philly offset their 3 losses in championships (76ers, Eagles & Flyers) with a Phillies World Series win, so it wasn't all bad. No such luck in 2022.

Our last update of 2022 is a consequential one, as due to @LAFC's thrilling MLS Cup victory, Los Angeles has just barely edged ahead of Tampa Bay and taken the top spot in the Champ Score rankings. The razor tight margin will be tested in just a few short months as Tampa Bay and LA teams both try to accumulate more points with a deep run in the NFL playoffs.

The @Astros have won another WS in this incredible 6-year run and rocketed Houston all the way to #4 in the ranking of top sports cities. I don't know if the rest of the Houston teams will be good enough, soon enough, to rise HOU any higher, but top 5 still a great achievement!

Congrats to the @Avalanche for their first Stanley Cup in over 20 years! Great series and great run. Though the @TBLightning did not win the Cup this year, by making the finals they were able to get enough points to overtake LA and return Tampa to the #1 spot among sports cities.
