I have always been slightly envious of fans who live in cities where they have a limited number of teams per sport, and have a fan base that is very prideful and unites for their teams.
Living in New York, there are just way to many teams in each sport and the city is divided with its allegiances. You have the championship Yankees, and the second rate Mets. You have the championship Giants and the second rate Jets (and second rate Bills being that they are the only REAL New York State team). You have the second rate Knicks and Nets (yes the Nets are a NY/NJ team and actually are just as NY as the Giants/Jets given the location of their arena). You have the Rangers, Islanders and Devils playing in a sport that is.....second rate (although I think the Devils are pretty good). Even with college sports there is no consistency given how many New York State and City schools there are, along with the amount of transplants that live in New York City.
Where can the entire city unite? It's virtually impossible
Looking at cities like Boston, Chicago, Pittsburgh, even dare I say Philadelphia, makes me sometimes wish I was raised in a city where everyone can align with all the teams which means I will have "friends" who I can root with.
