We have come to the end of this edition of Sportsball, and I thank everyone for playing.

This one is going to be a guessing game, and each answer will be worth five points. For each major pro sports league (MLB, NFL, NBA, NHL) name the team whose official Twitter account has the most followers and the team with the fewest (as of a few weeks ago when I looked them up). If you are not a Twitter user you should still be able to make an educated guess about most of these, and even if you are a Twitter user you will not know any of these for sure unless you have looked them up. I started having second thoughts about this game, but decided to go with it anyway. Please don't be mad at me.

MLB

Most:

Fewest:

NFL

Most:

Fewest:

NBA

Most:

Fewest:

NHL
(Do not include the Vegas Golden Knights, the expansion team that will begin play this fall.)

Thank you for these games! We need more people to step up and provide some temporary distractions like this from those "other threads"...

MLB

Most:

NY Yankees


Fewest:

Several possibilities here. The attendance for the two Florida teams are usually pretty lousy, and a smaller market team that hasn't been very competitive (before the early going this season anyway) like the Brewers, or a crappy team like the A's might be it, but a little voice inside my head is saying Minnesota Twins, so I'll go with that.


NFL

Most:

Dallas Cowboys. Like the Yankees, they're a brand that has a fanbase all over the map.


Fewest:

It pains me to say it, but it's probably my beloved but bumbling Buffalo Bills.


NBA

Most:

Hmmm..do I go with front running fans or a classic but currently awful franchise? Oh let's take a shot at front runners and say the Cleveland Cavaliers.


Fewest:

Sacramento Kings


NHL
(Do not include the Vegas Golden Knights, the expansion team that will begin play this fall.)

Most:

Montreal Canadiens


Fewest:

Columbus Blue Jackets



Thank you, Mr. Blues, for the fun and entertaining diversion these games provided.

MLB

Most: NY Yankees 2.26M

Fewest: Miami Marlins 278K
Solo Home Run bonus for Weasel


NFL

Most: New England Patriots 3.34M

Fewest: Jacksonville Jaguars 450K

I might have guessed the Cowboys, but they were second with 2.9M


NBA

Most: LA Lakers 6.14M

Fewest: Utah Jazz 626K
Solo Home Run for LB.


NHL
(Do not include the Vegas Golden Knights, the expansion team that will begin play this fall.)

Most: Chicago Blackhawks 2.17M (large fanbase plus recent success)

Fewest: Arizona Coyotes 287K
Another Solo Home Run for Weasel.

It occurred to me that the Montreal Canadiens might have accounts in English and in French, but they use one main account and usually send tweets in French and then in English.


So it appears that the Lakers have the most Twitter followers of any US pro sports team. But compare their 6.14M to, say, FC Barcelona (21.3M).

Sprots 1 (one point for loyalty to her state)
Vandal 15
Weasel 22
BiT 5
Frank 10
LB 21
TBone 5
AJ 10
Fireball 5
jarnon 15
kroxquo 10
Bob 15
