I beg your pardon (from Dallas).

Plus the Braves-Astros provided some rivalry (mainly one-sided since the Braves typically won...unfortunately).
I've lived in Dallas and Houston and I'm not aware of any rivalry with Atlanta.

from my experience, Dallas and Houston are very similar and Atlanta is different from the two

i don't know much about atlanta (never been there), but i've been to dallas several times and i can tell you it is nothing like houston. Dallas has a more snooty vibe to it and houston is alot more laid back.

If by Dallas, you mean Park Cities...East Dallas and North Oak Cliff are very laid back. Snobs are not tolerated.

i was only kidding...i really don't think people are snobs in dallas, that's just what you hear people say hear in houston. i think the only difference between the two cities is the way it's laid out. dallas seems more spread out with more open land. houston seems more compact. Dallas has better weather in my opinion. the proximity to the gulf gives houston an advantage but dallas has fort worth right next to it so there seems to be alot of stuff to do in and around the dallas area. both great cities. as for atlanta. i've never heard of any type of rivalry with either houston or dallas. we have too much rivalry right here in our own state to worry about anyone else outside the state lol.
