Were you out of the country after The Pulse shooting? It was all over the news for weeks...

For the record, going to Bluejackets games is PAINFUL. If there in the fall the announcers go on and on about Buckeye football instead of hockey. OSU is suffocating and I can't even escape it at a hockey game.

Actually all three have major league teams:

Cleveland

Indians (MLB)
Browns (NFL)
Cavaliers (NBA)

Columbus

Blue Jackets (NHL)

Cincinnati

Reds (MLB)
Bengals (NFL)

And if you wanted to include soccer, Columbus has an MLS team the Crew, but they might be moving to Austin in the not too distant future.

Before Columbus got awarded an NHL expansion team, they were one of the largest metro areas (population-wise) without one of the "Big 4" leagues.

Orlando is everywhere. TV, movies, sports, social media. Half of the Minions movie that made $1 billion was them trying to get to Orlando. The Fresh Off the Boat show on ABC is also set in Orlando. Pulse, Orlando SC, UCF football was a hot topic this year, etc, etc.

Man this thread is getting lazy...
