Little-known burg New York City is a 'Titletown' finalist
Sources deep within ESPN tell me that on the 6 p.m. SportsCenter New York City will be announced as one of 20 finalists for the summertime "TitleTown USA" competition.
The other candidates include Boston (boo!) and Green Bay (which, um, already is Titletown, right?).
Well, it's about time our backwater burg got some national pub! We recently won the Super Bowl! And beat the Packers along the way! So there!
Voting is scheduled for July 24 - 26, after a daily feature on each city from July 4 through 23. The winner will be announced July 27.
(Hey, it beats "Who's Now," last summer's big event.)
I'm telling you right now, New York: Vote for Green Bay, or you are a weenie.
