Nashville is neck and neck with Miami. To prove that it's the darling of these forums I swear if it beats Miami after beating much larger Houston and Orlando (with better weather, beaches, resorts).... CD is rigged and may as well be changed to Nashville data.com

Ditto. I have to admit some of the results have surprised me. It gives me hope that not everyone is a complete homer, or voted only out of spite/hatred. I know I voted for a few that I didn’t particularly like better personally, but knew it was the better choice.

Whoa, at almost 9pm ET, Saturday night, March 9th, we have a few tight races--

San Diego up by 3 over Portland, 21 - 18

LA just up by 2 over Seattle, 21 - 19

Nashville and Miami neck and neck, 21 -21

Could be some upsets!
