Your 32 cities

Recommended Posts

Preface: If this would fit better in the Pointless Realignment thread would the mods kindly move this please?

 

Imagine you are given the keys to a newly minted sports league, any sport, and then you are tasked with picking 32 cities from this list to host teams. Here's how I would do it...

 

  1. New York
  2. Los Angeles
  3. Chicago
  4. Boston
  5. San Francisco
  6. Dallas
  7. Philadelphia
  8. Houston
  9. Atlanta
  10. Miami
  11. Phoenix
  12. Denver
  13. Seattle
  14. Minneapolis/St Paul
  15. Washington, DC
  16. Las Vegas
  17. New Orleans
  18. San Antonio
  19. Charlotte
  20. Milwaukee
  21. Cleveland
  22. Portland, OR
  23. Tampa

You're gonna get the same 20 over and over, but in terms of non regular US cities I use cities like Raleigh, Omaha, Austin, Portland, and Louisville.

Oh no I wasn't criticizing at all, this thread would be cool with justification. I just wasn't gonna list Chicago, LA, etc since they were basically implied.

 

i also do Brooklyn in leagues too.

I think what was intended was that all the major teams in Minneapolis and St Paul use Minnesota as their locale name to represent the entire state.

Who came up with this? There's a good hour of NOTHING in between ABQ and Santa Fe.  Colorado Springs & Pueblo are pretty much the same.
