Texas is interesting because there isn't really consensus on what their alpha city is. Dallas is the larger Metro. Houston has a bigger city population and larger GDP. Which city is the most important in that state?
Houston economically. But from a pure history standpoint San Antonio.

L.A. > SF. SF would be alpha in most other states, but not here. The fact that there are a couple of posters still arguing this (homers, btw) should tell you all you need to know about SF's inferiority complex, despite being a top 5 city. Lol, they always want more.

I personally find Dallas/Houston the more intriguing argument. THAT would be far more debate worthy than L.A./SF, imo.

This is really the precise reason why you all fail in trying to deny the fact that within California, LA and SF pretty much stand on equal footing in California.

It's not momentum + preeminence, it's that your perception not really being substantiated by facts.

Facts: Within California, Finance, Technology, Manufacturing, Energy, Jobs, Politics, etc. are centered in the Bay Area in 2015.

ijs. lol

But, it's not #1! Overall, L.A. beats San Francisco. End of discussion. Much as I love the Warriors, Sportscenter is broadcasting out of L.A.--NOT San Francisco. Just one real world example on this 25th of April, 2015. Your arguments, that you KEEP highlighting are moot. L.A. is bigger and better.

But what can we expect? This is the same guy who thinks San Francisco is better than NYC. Lol. And the Philly homers are bad?

Columbus is the 2nd largest city in Georgia and has the largest corporate presence in the state outside of Metro Atlanta. Clearly, it's Georgia's 2nd city.

Good luck with that argument. Augusta has, by far, a larger metro area than Columbus. Both Savannah and Augusta metros have larger populations & economies.

This is a total waste of energy^ that has zero substance, just your usual jealous instigating and nobody asked about Philly because nobody cares.

Sportscenter? lmao. Thats all you got? Yawns.
