Three of the world's 20 most valuable sports franchises are from Boston

Forbes magazine just ranked the top 50 most valuable sports franchises in the world.

Spain's Real Madrid (soccer) is No. 1 at $3.26 billion.  The Dallas Cowboys and New York Yankees are tied for second at 3.2 billion.  Here's how the Boston teams rate:

No. 6 - Patriots, $2.6 billion (2nd in NFL)
No. 12 - Red Sox, $2.1 billion (3rd in MLB)
No. 20 - Celtics, $1.7 billion (4th in NBA)

New York is the only city with more teams in the top 20 (Yankees, Knicks, Giants and Jets) than Boston.  Chicago (Bulls, Cubs and Bears) has three as well.

Sorry Bruins/hockey fans, just one NHL team made the top 50--the Toronto Maple Leafs, tied for No. 37 at $1.3 billion.
