Minnesota should be accepted for Minneapolis

Even by the most liberal definition of metro area I don't think anyone would contend that the metro area of Minneapolis encompasses the entire state of Minnesota.

I think his comment was meant to reflect that the Vikings are the Minnesota Vikings, the Twins are also Minnesota Twins...even if both really play in Minneapolis and not in, say, Duluth, or in St. Paul, where the Saints play.

If metro areas are used, why are Baltimore and Washington DC not joined as a metro area? Certainly they are closer together than San Francisco and Santa Clara/San Jose

I didn't really "mistake" it; just wasn't thinking about Canadians, and I got all 41 US cities with lots of time to spare. Was pulling my hair out trying to figure out how I was missing a city with 3 major sports teams... Toronto. Not much of a hockey fan, so the others, pfft.

Much improved, Quizmaster. No more problems with Newark, East Rutherford, Foxborough, and the like. Only minor quibble is that, while I think it's great that you accept Newark for NYC metro and San Jose for San Francisco metro, you should extend the same courtesy to St. Paul, St. Petersburg, and Anaheim.

+1
level 44
May 31, 2013
Unless you're from the LA area, Anaheim is LA. Considering the Angels have gone back and forth on their name, it's understandable that people who aren't from there don't care about the distinction.

Sacramento should be included in Bay Area

level 68
Sep 24, 2013
why? sacramento is at least 1.5 hrs from the bay area...if that were the case...then green bay packers would be added to the milwaukee area...seeing green bay is around the same distance to milwaukee as sacramento is to the san francisco bay area
+1
level 67
Mar 23, 2015
The Bay Area doesn't include Sacramento. Nobody, when they talk about the Bay Area, thinks of Sacramento. It's halfway to Nevada, that'd be like calling Bakersfield part of Los Angeles.
+1
level 55
Jan 2, 2018
As I live near Sacramento. We don't like to be associated with the Bay Area. We like just being Sacramento. Not San Jose, San Francisco, Oakland, etc. Since Sacramento doesn't even touch the San Francisco Bay and we are about a 2 hour drive away.

Also the Angels are in Anaheim. But we're only 25 miles from LA. Which reminds me, I have a great idea for an NFL team: the Los Angeles Chargers of San Diego.

I think the fact that the quiz is called "North American Cities" rather than "US Cities" is your clue. Even so, it took me a bit to figure it out.

No cities would be added. Every metro area that has an MLS team has at least 1 other professional sports team from 1 of the other 4 leagues as well.

Not until the Raiders actually move to Vegas, which will happen in either 2019 or 2020... Which is really sad to Oakland: having to host during at least two years a team whose owner has shown them the middle finger.
