Signifiying nothing. It never does, and yet people keep bringing it up. ZZZZZZZZZ

Saying a drainage ditch in SA beats those thing is the silliest thing I have heard all week

I hear about San Antonio basically never, but I often hear about Austin. That's why I'm saying it seems overshadowed.

We're talking about an MSA larger than Nashville, Las Vegas, Orlando, Cincinnati, and Kansas City. Not to mention Austin. But I hear about all those cities much more than I hear about San Antonio. I guess not following basketball might have something to do with it.

Yeah but if Houston was the size of JAX it would have 500,000 more people at 2.73 million. If JAX was the size of HOU then it would have 670,000. If it is about density, Miami's is 11,500 per square mile. If it was the size of JAX it would be as big if not bigger than NYC at 8.4 million.

I do however, agree on Oklahoma City.

That was in reference to people thinking of Fort Worth as a "suburb", mostly, which pretty much downgrades and downplays that city.

I'm pretty sure that people unaware or totally ignorant of how large a city is and what role it plays in an area part of the reason WHY the city is overshadowed.

Buffalo, Baltimore, Jacksonville, Oklahoma City

Tampa Bay is overshadowed for a metro it's size. The population size is in the same range as San Diego and Denver metros, which get more attention (at least on CD).

San Jose the city itself may be overshadowed. However, you hear a lot of talk about the Silicon Valley and the Bay Area in general, so in a way it is not that overshadowed.

Philly gets a lot of attention CD. In real life it seems to be overshadowed by the other big cities in the Bos-Wash Corridor, with the exception of Baltimore. NYC, Boston, and DC get a lot more recognition than Philly IMO.

St. Louis gets quite a bit of attention on CD, but again, in reality I feel like you don't hear much about it.

1. Philly is very overshadowed. I honestly don't think most people realize that the Philly metro has almost six million people. Philly is talked about as if it is on the same level as Baltimore, St Louis, and Cleveland.
2. Fort Worth- I honestly know nothing about Ft. Worth. Does the city even have a convention center? I know Irving has one. I have never heard anyone say they are going to Ft Worth on business, etc.
3. Columbus, OH- Overshadowed by Cleveland & Cincinnati. Most seem to think Columbus is a Midwestern college city like Ann Arbor or Madison.

How many tourists come from other states that don't border Texas and don't come in for conventions? I'd be VERY curious!
