Things That Caught My Eye Philly had it coming

Philadelphia really needed that Super Bowl win. From 1984 to 2017, the sports teams of Boston won 7.7 more championships than expected, those of Chicago won 6.1 more than expected, LA 4.9, San Francisco 4.7, and New York 3.2 more than we’d otherwise project. Prior to winning the Super Bowl, Philadelphia sat on the bottom of the list of North American sporting towns, winning 3.7 fewer championships than otherwise expected. [FiveThirtyEight]
