In 2010, the Globe dubbed Toronto a “city of losers”, citing its incredible ineptitude across the four major sports.

This week, in a follow-up story, they confirmed that…nothing has changed. Here’s the analysis of cities with teams in all four major North American sports, and their combined winning percentages:

1.San Francisco/Oakland .574

2.Dallas-Fort Worth .538

3. New York/New Jersey .537

4. Washington, D.C. .523

5. Detroit .489

6. Chicago .486

7. Boston .483

8. Miami .478

9. Denver .477

10. Philadelphia .469

11. Phoenix .448

12. Toronto .442

13. Minneapolis-St. Paul .419

Yeah, what’s up now, Minneapolis!

(It should be noted, however, that the numbers above don’t include MLSE’s other major loser, Toronto FC. Throwing in their win-loss record would probably plunge Toronto well below the Twin Cities.)
