Who am I?

I'm from Houston, a graduate of the University of Texas, a fan of the Houston Astros and Houston Texans. But this blog will be about the "greater sports", whatever that means.

Franchise Performance Pt. 2 (#91 - #120)

Recapping the groundrules of the study, we are ranking all sports city-team combinations for playoff performance since 1974 using a poker like system:
1) All teams chip in $10 at the beginning of the year
2) Winner takes 50%, Runner up 25%, Semifinalists 10%, remaining playoff teams split the last 5%
3) City/Team combinations are separate, the Charlotte Hornets are not associated with the New Orleans Hornets, etc.

Totals through the 2012 Super Bowl are included here (only one more chunk of money to play for and both participants are solidly in the top 50%).

Number 121-148 were revealed in part 1

The break down of this set by league as:
NHL: 11
NFL: 9
NBA: 6
MLB: 4

Cities with at least two teams and still with no appearances (all teams in the top 60%) are Boston, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, and San Francisco.

Each team is summarized below. A reminder, the years below are the year of the playoffs, so for NFL, 2010 is associated with the 2009 regular season. For best season, playoff performance is given precedence over regular season record.
