Cincinnati Ranks Third Among Most Depressed NFL Cities

According to data compiled by Avvo (www.avvo.com), Cincinnati ranks as the third most depressed professional football cities in the country. How did Avvo compile their statistics?

Methodology:  Avvo reviewed data in the 14 NFL cities that have never won a Super Bowl. In each of five equally weighted categories, cities were ranked first to last. Statistics used to establish the rankings included: psychiatrists per capita (Avvo), unemployment rate (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics), heavy drinking defined as two or more drinks a day for men and at least one drink a day for women (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System), average commuting time to and from work (U.S. Census Bureau) adults with hypertension (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System) and average yearly sunshine (National Climatic Data Center and Weatherbase).

What's surprising is that all we've written and talked about, Cincinnati isn't first on the list. Since we've learned that we could just buy people off eBay, perhaps we can get a solid heavy drinker to push our depression levels even higher. What say you, Cincinnati?

According to Avvo, the most depressed professional football city is Philadelphia, ranked ahead of Atlanta with Houston and San Diego rounding out the top five.
