It hilarious that San Francisco is a few ranks above Oakland and LA. I see Chicago is high on the ranks. Although Chicago is the third largest city with its share of yuppified or gentrified neighborhoods, it still have maintain the blue collar roots. Not to mention for city of it size, its a sports town. People were in the mood for a big celebration the night the Hawks won the championship. I didn't realize hockey was that major in the Chicago area until the night I heard fireworks the night they won while at work.

Based on:

sports, manly lifestyle, manly retail stores, manly occupations and salty snack sales categories.

Also, it's funny they have Oakland at #47...Go tell an Oakland Raiders fan or some dude in East Oakland that Oaktown is one of the "least manly" cities in the country...see what happens.
What?

What would make a city "manly" or is such an idea even useful? I think I'd lean toward saying it's not useful or able to be studied. Still maybe I'd go for

Percent of population that is male.

Percent of population that has facial hair.

Percent of the population in traditionally "manly" jobs: Construction work, firefighting, police, military, auto-mechanic, and engineering.

Percent who like Spaghetti Westerns. (At least going by IMDB those are more popular with men)

Manly jobs is one of the categories determining the list.

Milwaukee is the home of Harley Davidson, so it makes sense - lots of Harley owners.
