I don't really listen to k104 or 97.9 so, I guess I'm missing it. I just hear "Dallas"

I barely ever listen to either station anymore (mainly because I'm always listening to ESPNDallas), but I've been around so many people who've called it "D-town" and even "Tripple D" (Dirty Dirty Dallas) more than "Big D", and it's not JUST people from the Metroplex, either.

Maybe you're just not very, let's say.... urban. Because I can assure you, it's a very common nickname for Dallas.

Right. but, I don't hear sports announcers or the local news use it either, and yes I'm white. I'm sure I've heard it at some point but not often. I just say Dallas. I've heard H-town for Houston

Pretty sure you haven't heard "Funkytown", "The Funk", or "Panther City", but those are common nicknames in Fort Worth.

And in Houston there's, "Space City", "Screwston", and "Hustle Town, U.S.A."

A lot more out there....

If I hear 'D-town' I automatically think Dallas. If I hear 'the D' I think Detroit. I wonder what nickname Denver uses
