By population it's Vegas, Austin, VA Beach, Providence, Louisville, Richmond, Hartford, Birmingham, Rochester, Grand Rapids, Tucson, and Honolulu (just seems like a nice city to end on)

Of those, if we're talking about where I'd want to live, I'd probably go with Vegas and Honolulu. I just like that they're different from what I'm used to.

Out of curiosity, what would a team be called as far as geographic identifier? I assume the minor league teams are named based on the particular city, but if there was a team for the entire region what would it be called?

Probably the Tidewater X or the Hampton Roads X. Probably the latter as that's the name they're trying to make stick.

As for what the X could stand for, some possible names could be "The Colonials", "The Blackbeards" or "The Ironclads".

IDK.

Austin and Las Vegas, both cities have so much to offer in the entertainment field besides professional sports.

Austin is the live music capital of the world and Las Vegas is the casino capital with 24-7 activity, both cities have club scenes and nightlife that could easily rival many bigger cities.

I was in Las Vegas recently and I read an interesting report in their local paper about their arena football team folding, and it's not out of the question now for NFL or NHL to consider expansion teams there.

Austin comes to mind, but what criteria are we judging by? Burlington, VT is much, much smaller than these other cities listed, yet in terms of food/drink scene, location, natural beauty/parks, and even culture/history, it is likely ahead of Austin or any other larger city at least ones that aren't big enough to have a sports team. Toledo and Dayton both have very good recreational/cultural assets, though in some ways they pale in comparison to the larger cities on the list. I think many took this list and said, what's the city/market that doesn't have a sports team that could support one?
