The rich history of the Green Bay Packers — 12 NFL titles, including the first two Super Bowls and Super Bowl Favre — is the Wisconsin hamlet's only claim to fame, a claim the town solidified by adopting the nickname "Titletown, USA" decades ago. According to Wikipedia, "The name appears on the city seal, is used by the Green Bay Chamber of Commerce for its web address (www.titletown.org) and variations of the word appear in the name of more than two dozen local businesses."
Well, too fucking bad, Green Bay. ESPN thought a good way to boost web traffic over the quieter summer months would be to hold a contest to determine the real Titletown, and you lost. To someplace in Georgia called Valdosta.
For years, it’s been called Winnersville. Now, the south Georgia town of Valdosta has another name: TitleTown USA, thanks to ESPN. The cable sports network is coming to Valdosta today to declare Valdosta the winner of its summer promotion that earlier this month featured the city as one of its 20 finalists for the national award.
I've never heard of Valdosta and I could give a shit about Wisconsin, but this might be some of the most presumptuous bullshit ESPN's ever pulled. "Hello, New York? Yeah, you're not the 'Big Apple' any more. Sorry, but we had an Internet vote, so that's that."
