So another thread reminded me of something funny I saw on a guy's shirt one time. He was wearing a shirt with the state of Texas and 7 of the major cities matched with the 7 deadly sins. I thought this would be a fun game for others in other states to match up their cities with the sins too. So I'll start by listing Texas:

Austin = Pride

Dallas = Greed

El Paso = Lust

Fort Worth = Envy

Houston = Wrath

Lubbock = Sloth

San Antonio = Gluttony

Of course others may disagree with my list and that's cool, just edit as you see necessary if you like. So who's it gonna be next? California? Virginia? Georgia? Colorado? New York?

Just out of curiosity, why do you think Lubbock is slothful?

I know it's supposed to be by state, but I like Los Angeles for vanity, NYC for greed and Las Vegas for gluttony.

That's good, you don't even have to go by specific states. I might even say San Francisco reminds me of pride. I don't per se think Lubbock is slothful. I think that's what his shirt said though. Maybe because Lubbock is a slower pace of life than the other cities?

I think San Fran would be greed and Houston pride and Miami and Vegas lust (at least the way those 2 are portrayed by the media). Might say Dallas is also pride as well as NYC and Philly
