    The Top Cities in Pro Sports . . . Grammatically Speaking

    (I'm guessing that Houston's poor showing has a lot to do with the large ESL population)

    In 2015, Grammarly put pro sports fans to the test. We wanted to see who had the best writing chops when they were cheering on their favorite teams online. Our first study— ranking NFL fans by their spelling, grammar, and punctuation—proved so popular that we went on to rank MLB and NBA enthusiasts, as well.

    To wrap up the year in sports (Grammarly style), we decided to see which pro sports cities had game. Sports lovers in the great state of Tennessee surprised us by coming in both first and last. Memphis ranked number 1, lead by grammatically adept Grizzlies (NBA) fans. Nashville lumbered in at the back of the pack, hindered by typo-prone Titans (NFL) fans. NBA fans made the fewest mistakes overall, and NFL fans the most.

    Tennessee is apparently bi-polar

    No way a city in Florida is in the top 5. This list is not credible.

    You also have to consider that larger fan bases have a greater chance of drawing in more idiots.
