The Austin marketing hype machine strikes again. I personally don't think it is that much more liberal than Houston or Dallas and it definitely is not even close to being as diverse as Houston or Dallas either. I do love Austin though but people think of it as a city that's the most unTexan of all major cities and that is not the truth.

Very true Spade, I just recently got back from Houston and I can say that feels different from the rest of Texas. Sort of like Houston could be it's own state.

The More humid parts of Texas such as Dallas, and Corpus Christi, and to a lesser extent, Houston as well, but I left it out of my votes because I have no family living in Houston.

Just curious. What sports market is Austin in? If I turn on the TV will I see Cowboy and Ranger games or will I see Texans and Astros games?

It's mostly Texas. But you will see Ranger, Cowboys, Texans, and Astros games. Cowboys are likely more popular than the Texans in Austin and the Rangers/Astros are about a mix.

I assume you would get the Texans games on CBS (AFC channel) and the Cowboys games on FOX (NFC channel), no clue what the local Fox / Comcast Sports Net channel would be for [a] baseball team(s), that is if Austin even gets one (or both) of them.
