ESPN has ranked the Nashville Predators as the Number one franchise in all sports! During last season's Stanley Cup Final between Nashville and the Pittsburgh Penguins, everybody in North America discovered how crazy this town is about hockey.
How can you rank them as Number one, you're probably asking yourself. Here's ESPN answer :
«If we were still running ESPN's Ultimate Standings -- which compiled fan surveys and financial analysis to determine which franchises give back the most to fans -- there's no question who would rank No. 1 this year. Nashville made the Stanley Cup finals while charging middle-of-the-pack ticket prices. Beyond that bang for the buck, the Preds deliver eye-popping customer service. In our most recent polls, Nashville topped all NHL clubs in engaging fans through social media, delivering information via mobile devices, making it easy to use the team website and providing avenues for feedback.»
Predators fans are probably super happy about that #1 ranking, because Nashville didn't receive all the recognition it deserves since the franchise started in 1998. They certainly have it now, and that Number one franchise in all sports title proves it!
What do you think? Where would you rank your favorite team?
