Cornell's Men's Lacrosse and Basketball teams have been in the NCAA Tournament in recent years. Maybe that TC3 Soccer team is no joke too.

Ann Arbor is a part of its own metro, but is a part of the Detroit CSA. It may have changed recently though.

Ithaca has a mix of hipster and hippy, depending on where in the city/area.
About spot on..Ithaca is a mixture of intellectual hippy and hipster. Perhaps the only place you'll ever walk into a convenience store and the attendant makes a point to engage you in some analytical, esoteric analysis of a social philosophy. Open-minded to a T and the city has its own currency. Add in the beautiful scenery and I'm thinking Portland is your best bet. I really can't see any other place like it.

Denver mostly due to all the Sports teams (OP is looking for), breweries, colleges, hiking/bike trails, music/artist scene, & hipsters. Granted some give and take won't be exactly like Ithaca, but close.

Ithaca is literally the only place I have ever been in my life where I was cussed out for opening a door for a woman. I was flabbergasted. I retorted that she shouldn't think of herself as special because I'd open, or continue to hold open, a door for anyone who was either coming or going through the same door as me.

Pro sports is a horrible way to judge a city.

I wonder if she was a hardcore feminist type, as you may run into some women like that in the area.
