Orlando Magic to Tampa

This is just my own speculation, but I foresee that if the Magic do not get a new arena soon, that they will relocate to Tampa and play in the beautiful St Pete Times Forum and be called the ____________ (insert nickname here). What do you all think

I doubt they'd move there since the NBA prefers markets that aren't already saturated with sports and Tampa already has 3 teams (4 if you count the Storm).

Personally, I'd like the NBA to try Louisville. Being on the border of Indiana and Kentucky should make it an easy sell for hoops.

Off topic, but reminds me of an observation...

Everyone I've ever met that says they're from "Cincinatti", are really from Kentucky. People I've met who are really from Cinicinatti all say they're from "Ohio".

Maybe Cincitucky can have the Hornets. Then they can jumpoff the Cardinals-Bearcats rivalry into the pros.

Why does Orlando need a new arena? I didn't go inside of it, but it looked like it was relatively new. Was it poorly designed or something?

From what I've heard & read, the O-Rena was not built with enough luxury suites. The same thing that plagued Miami Arena, which is why the Heat and the Panthers both built separate arenas for themselves. I also don't think the Magic get much revenue from the arena, since they don't own it.

In Boston, the Fleet Center is basically the Bruins'. Jeremy Jacobs owns all the concessions in the arena, the Celtics only get a small precentage of the profits. If the Celtics decide to build their own arena in Boston, they would own the concessions there, and make much more profits from the various events that would be held there.

That's a weird observation. What about Kansas City?

My experience has been that people say they are from KC without making a state designation. Much of the KC metro residential population lives in the Kansas counties just west of KC, Missouri but there is also a good sized suburban population in Jackson, Clay and Platte Counties in MO that is outside of KC proper.

The situation is even greater in St. Louis, where only about 10-12% of the St. Louis metro population actually lives in the city of St. Louis. Most people live in St. Louis County (the city of St. Louis is its own county and an entirely separate political subdivision than St. Louis County), St. Charles County, and Jefferson County in MO and Madison & St. Clair Counties in Illinois. Nonetheless, most of us call ourselves St. Louisans.

I think if you live in a city that's that close to a state border or exists right on a state border you probably don't pay much attention to whatever state you're in. I would think you would just say that you're from that specific city without mentioning any state at all.

Interesting related observation - sometimes even national boundaries don't even matter. I don't know how many times I was asked in college, probably half jokingly, if I was from Canada. Must be the New York Metro area forgetting the rest of the state exists again...

Unless you live in Fargo or Grand Forks, ND, since they're right on the border of ND/MN, and sales taxes are a little nicer to you in Minnesota (no tax on clothes, etc).
