Champ Score Updates

Jun 26, 2024

Congrats to the Celtics and Panthers for winning the NBA and NHL titles respectively. They both add to the long history of teams going up 3-0 in their series and ultimately winning, no matter the different paths to get there.

As for the champ scores, Boston moves back into the top 5 after a nadir for the past few years. Miami gets up to number 6. The only consolation for any Los Angeles team fans who had to watch their Boston counterparts get another championship is that their city is still, barely, on top of the rankings. The margin is so small though that either the MLS or WNBA seasons could easily tip the balance between LA and Kansas City.

With the first back-to-back Super Bowls in nearly 20 years, The Chiefs' have propelled Kansas City to their all time high in terms of local team success, surpassing the previous mark set last year. KC still is sitting at only 3rd place on the Champ list, behind Tampa and Los Angeles, who both have had multiple teams contribute to their champ scores. As great as the Chiefs have been, neither the Royals nor Sporting KC have made any serious playoff runs, and it is hard to make it to the top of the Champ list only based on the strength of one team, dynasty or not.

On the other side of the coin, San Francisco edges themselves into the top 5 on the strength of this Super Bowl run and their prior Warriors championship. They obviously were hoping for more, but the 49ers are already listed as the Super Bowl favorites for next season, so perhaps their window is just opening.

Dec 10, 2023

The Columbus Crew beat LAFC by a score of 2-1 in the MLS Cup, and have won the final championship of the calendar year. This is the Crew's 2nd MLS Cup in 4 years, and 3rd overall, and brings the city of Columbus to their all-time high ranking on the Champ list, 15th.

While LAFC did not end up winning the MLS Cup, their runner up finish was enough to pad Los Angeles' lead in the overall Champ list and maintain their spot as the #1 sports city.

Nov 1, 2023

Congrats to the Texas Rangers, who are now the third franchise in a row to win their first championship, ending the 62-year drought that started in 1961 when they joined the MLB. With the Rangers' World Series win, the city of Dallas moves all the way up to #7 on the champ list, and breaks their 11 year and 46 season drought.

Nothing changes at the top of the champ list though, as neither the Dodgers nor Rays had enough of a postseason run to alter the order of #1 and #2. Of note if you think the streak of first-time winners is going to continue for the NFL, then the Super Bowl winner would need to be one of the (roughly in current SB odds): Bills, Bengals, Lions, Browns, Jags, Chargers, Falcons, Vikings, Titans, Texans, Panthers, or Cardinals. The odds get pretty long after the first 6, but certainly a realistic chance for those teams.
