1. not my football team, I despise football, most boring sport to me right after baseball.

2. yes I say y'all and so do millions of other people including some people in the Northeast, what's your point? does that mean I'm a cowboy?

3. I HATE pork, ribs, bbq, etc. I prefer pho, sushi, thai, again, what's your point? do you have one?

Just to let you in on a well kept secret, New York and California do not have the market cornered on cultural events and fashionable and exciting clubs, et al. For all that is just and sane in this world, please stop speaking on topics you have not a clue.

I agree with you somewhat. Rural texas is that way, but dallas and houston are not like that

When i was a toddler about 20 yrs ago i lived in a cul de sac in a suburb of dallas.

My parents told me that we were the only people in the cul de sac out of about 15 houses on the street that were not from the northeast

The population of the dallas-ft worth metro was 5.5 M in 2000 and grew to 6.5M in 2007.

Where do you think the million people came from? It is from the northeast (boston, philly, chicago, nyc and jersey)

Just to clear some things up, if they haven't already. The Bay area is larger than the Metroplex. But the Metroplex has a higher urban area than the Bay area. So technically, Dallas is more urban than San Francisco. I think the areas are quite comparable. The back-up for San Francisco is Oakland, and the back-up for Dallas is Fort Worth.

Although I think I would be intrigued by San Francisco and would love to visit there I voted Dallas. Mostly for sympathy, cuz I figured SFC would blow it out the water, plus I think I can handle Dallas better than San Francisco. I am a Southerner, so I think I can handle the climate of Dallas because it is probably not that different from my home city of Charlotte. Southerner does not mean ignorant by the way. LOL!

depends on your definition of urban, certainly not more people leading "urban" lifestyles....

Why can you handle Dallas climate better...u know it gets colder in Dallas right?

By urban I am referring to urban areas, a population statistical category. Dallas for the most part is in the South so I am used to that type of weather. Plus I like the political weather a little bit more. I am not sure if I personally could handle the extreme left of San Francisco. But I do plan to visit to check it out.

This is oh-so-wrong.

Dallas has a larger 'urbanized' area-not 'urban'.

Urbanized refers to built up land, 'urban' is something completely different.
