Not saying youre weird or that you take this all to seriously but I don't think this discussion should be that important where we are literally arguing inch for inch. If you don't think Atlanta has a sphere in that region then I wont try to change your opinion, the world is only unique because every living being has an opinion.
My Gosh man, it was a figure of speech. Don't take everything so literal

you used King as a reference and I went with it because that very reference was proving my point.

Yeah, like I said the ATL posters are touchy.
Brent can quote me and say what he want, he knows he is touchy too

PS Brent Charlotte beats ATL's ass anyday

And you guys are proving my point. How damn juvenile.

I stated some Houstonians are sore losers, yet more than a few now feel the need to get in a little dig. It's like you must have the last word, at all costs.

I have a question for the Texans in this thread. I don't mean to generalize but upon visiting both Dallas and Houston several times over the course of the previous years I loved what I saw in both cities. Love them both very much but I noticed a different mindset in both places.

Houstonians had more pride being from HOUSTON or the SOUTH while Dallasites had more pride in being from TEXAS than their city or the south. I have met many Houstonians who have major Texas pride but not as many as I have met having Houston or southern pride. Again I don't mean to generalize but may I ask why that is?

I have not noticed that.

DFW residents are just as loud mouthed about DFW as we are about Houston, both cities love the state equally. Bare in mind both cities have tons of transplants

I actually brought that point up several pages ago.

Nothing against Dallas, but Houston generally has more of an identity, and quite frankly, our city means more to many of us than our state does. Dallas is more "Texan", and thus, has more of an affinity with the state. I'm sure many will disagree, but that's what I've always observed.

Southern pride dies down the further West you go in Texas. It goes from Southern pride in East Texas to Texas pride pretty much everywhere else.
