Wolves Fans Tops In Using Proper Grammar

Every so often, an e-mail I receive from outside parties – and I receive about 50 a day – catches my eye.

This one from the folks at Grammarly did. The online writing tool site studied fans’ posts on NFL, MLB and NBA and ranked them by correct grammar use online.

The Timberwolves faithful came in at 1.69 mistakes per 100 words, the best among individual sports teams. However, Minneapolis ranked 19th overall with the Twins and Vikings rolled in.

Other takeaways:

  • Fans in Tennessee managed to come in both first (Memphis) and last (Nashville).
  • NBA fans made the fewest mistakes overall. NFL fans made the most.
  • Philadelphia dropped from 5th to 24th place… because of Phillies fans.

Here are the complete rankings:
