On the other hand, being one of the best sports towns in America is, unfortunately, not on the list of positive traits most associated with Miami. Until now.
Thanks to a new study done by WalletHub that looked at sports data from 392 cities, Miami's rep as a sports town appears to be getting a bit of a makeover. WalletHub considered small and large cities, taking into account the five largest sports in the US: football, basketball, baseball, hockey, and soccer.
The number crunchers deemed Miami America's sixth-best large sports city, trailing only Los Angeles, Boston, New York, Pittsburgh, and Dallas.
Like DJ Khaled always says Miami, we da sixth-best!
Unsurprisingly, Miami's elite ranking was buoyed by high marks in basketball (sixth best) and football (seventh best). WalletHub pegged Miami as the 14th-best soccer city and 26th-best large baseball city.
Miami wasn't the only big Florida city to make it toward the top of WalletHub's Best Sports Cities list. Tampa (26), Orlando (34), and Tallahassee (48) also made the top 50.
So there you have it. The next time you find someone ignorantly claiming on Twitter that Miami is a terrible sports town, you link them back to this article and say the data scientists at WalletHub beg to differ.
