Growing up, I lived just outside of the Philadelphia area (don't hold that against me!) and to say sports were a big deal would be an understatement.

Every Eagles, Phillies, and Flyers game would be on the TV no matter what day of the week and we'd catch each and every one.

Recently, WalletHub ranked the best city in the country in terms of being a good sports city, and one small New Jersey town made it pretty high on the list.

Princeton ranked 48th overall on the list, but it was ranked number 1 for Jersey, honestly, College towns are always great sports towns.

Granted, small-town vibes mixed with sports is always fun but I would have really thought Newark or Jersey City would have come out on top for this list!

By the way, if you're curious what city is the best sports city in the country you'll have to fly to California because LA took the honor of the United States best sports city.
