There is nothing wrong with correcting an ignorant assumption, but to be so condescending when the instruction of the topic states, "What do you think...?" not "Name a verified fact about..." is a bit unwarranted.

Posting my immediate thoughts without having read the rest of the thread:

St.Louis - the Arch
Cincinnati - WKRP (TV show)
Buffalo - cold weather, thick snow, & "shuffle off to Buffalo" song
Sioux Falls - Mt. Rushmore
Toledo - Klinger on M.A.S.H. (TV show)
Fresno - Johnny Carson making jokes about it
Mobile - an ex-friend of mine who grew up there
Jacksonville - nothing
Reno - gambling
Richmond - Richmond where? VA? If so, images of the Revolutionary War
El Paso - nothing
Boston - Cheers (TV show) & images in my mind from past visits there
San Diego - a dear relative who lives there

St.Louis = near ferguson and ferguson is no good.
Cincinnati = I don't know. Near Cleveland which is where bath and body works is headquartered and I love bbw
Buffalo = New York is all
Sioux Falls = sounds beautiful
Toledo = not sure which state this is in. Arkansas?
Fresno = people who live here go to Yosemite on the regular. Lucky.
Mobile = poor people
Jacksonville = inland Florida.
Reno = reno 911. My ghetto neighbor was from Reno and I'm glad she moved away.
Richmond = beautiful Virginia
El Paso = would rather live in dallas than this place.
Boston = no thanks but would love to visit.
San Diego = where I live.

Toledo: Glass City. Cold and snowy. Just south of Detroit.

Fresno: Farming.

Mobile: It's in Alabama. On the water.

Jacksonville: Beautiful riverfront downtown. Great beaches. High crime.

Reno: Smaller version of Las Vegas with better climate, IMO.

Richmond: State capital. Kings Dominion Theme Park. Not far from DC.

El Paso: Beautiful mountains. Gets more snow than many parts of TX.

Boston: My wife was raised here, in-laws still there. Beautiful area. Great history. Best sports city in the nation, IMO. Not much political or diversity. Expensive.

San Diego: Naval base. Nice weather. Expensive.

The sports scene in Boston may be the most overrated thing. Just because their teams had the fortune of winning a bunch of championships together doesn't mean it's the best sports city. The fan atmosphere at games can be pretty pedestrian, and teams like the Patriots, Celtics and Bruins even had attendance issues prior to their success. I am wary to crown a certain city the best sports city, but Boston is no better or worse than it's peers. I doubt we would be seeing half as many Patriots jerseys if they hadn't won so much the last 16 years. Ditto the other teams.

There are plenty of other cities that don't win nearly as much but are no less passionate and actually sell out their games.

It's an opinion, mate. I've been to most of the major metros in our nation, and, from my experience, they're the best sports town I've experienced and far from "pedestrian", lol. You're urge to critique a 4-5 word subjective opinion suggests you're overly emotional when you see something you don't agree with or you have a personal ax to grind with Boston that taints your opinions. Pick one, lol.
