Fort Worth, TX is known as....
  • Cowtown (General)
  • Funkytown (Urban)
  • Panther City (Historical)
  • The City Where the West Began/Begins (Historical/Geographical?)
  • Murder Worth (in the 90's)
  • Fort Worth-less (by haters)
  • "The Funk" (...apparently a new one. I hate this one.)
  • Tornado Alley (speaks for itself...)
  • America's Most Livable City (debatable with 9 other cities)
  • Temporary home of LaDainian Tomlinson (for his time at TCU)
  • America's most over shadowed city (my own nickname)
  • (along with Arlington...) #1 area to relocate to (since earlier this year)

....of course, I probably shouldn't have posted this since my city isn't exactly noticed 'round the world.
