It was probably not one of the best years for sports in the New York City area. The Yankees fell short in their bid for their 28th World Series championship, the Mets were bad (yet again), LeBron James overshadowed the world of basketball, the Giants collapsed, the local NHL teams were subpar, and The Boss died. But it wasn't all bad: we did get the promise of a Super Bowl in 2014, the Jets made an unlikely playoff run, the Knicks became relevant again, and World Cup fever swept through the city (and out of it) faster than Diego Forlan.
