Well, At Least You Can Write a Semi-Coherent Sentence

Here’s another one of these Grammerly studies where they take a look at which sports fan bases have the best grammar and spelling. Wisconsin fares pretty well, with both Milwaukee and Green Bay in the top 11 out of the 42 metro areas included.

Where are Vikings fans? Well, somehow not last.

They were obviously buoyed by Twins fans, though.

If you’re curious about the methodology behind this, here it is.

We began by collecting the first five comments posted under articles on each official MLB, NBA, and NFL team blog from official sports team and sports fan websites, like NFL.com and SB Nation, until we had gathered a total of 100 comments for each team. Each comment contained at least 50 words and was posted within an average timespan of two months ending October 20, 2015.

Using Grammarly, we identified the errors in the comments, which were then verified and tallied by a team of live proofreaders. 

Finally, we calculated the average number of mistakes per one hundred words by dividing the total word count of the comments by the total number of mistakes for each team.

So, you know, you obviously take your time when you’re crafting those well-thought-out insults about my mother and sexuality after I’ve called your boy DickRodge a loser for the 100th time.

    Bucks fans would have been number one if it weren’t for those drunk Brewers fans dragging them down.
