I’m not going to lie. Before I moved to Tampa Bay I was not a sports person. There’s something about the sports teams in our town that bring a sense a pride and wraps you in even if you aren’t a sports person.

The passion and drive that our winning team has shown over the past few years have helped them grab a HUGE honor!.

According to the just published 2016 ESPN Ultimate Standings, the Tampa Bay Lightning franchise is the cream of the crop. In all the land of sports, ESPN ranks all 122 NHL, MLB, NFL, and NBA franchises… the Lightning came out on top as the NUMBER ONE TEAM IN AMERICA!!!!!



ESPN Magazine out on newsstands Saturday

The Lightning came in at number 3 last year. The Bucs landed at spot 73 and the Rays came in with the ranking of 90 out of the 122 teams.

Look for the full edition of ESPN magazine to hit stands Saturday and online later this week. #GOBOLTS
