Sports Crazy? Providence?
Travel + Leisure just named Providence number ten on its list of sports fanatic cities.
You know you're in a sports-crazed place when you call around to local grocery stores to see if they're cleaned out because of an impending snowstorm, only to hear that if their shelves are empty, it's a lot more likely because there's a Patriots game the next day.
So it's no surprise that when Travel + Leisure magazine announced its list of sports-crazed cities, Providence came in at number ten.
The magazine notes that while many Providence fans head to Boston to check out games, they can also catch the Providence College Friars at the Dunk, the PawSox at McCoy Stadium, or watch the action at one of the city's microbreweries, Trinity Brewhouse or Union Station.
