+ 1, hope Kate_she realizes that her list of what she wants Dallas to be isn't what makes Dallas better, no matter how much she wants it to be.

Dallas is definitely better at sports and fashion/upscale shopping. That shouldnt even be up for discussion. The fact that the Cowboys play in Arlington should not matter any more than it does that the Jet/Giants play in New Jersey. The Rockets have a better franchise than the Mavericks, but we also have a pro-hockey team that has won a Stanley Cup in their history. Our football team is also much stronger. The Astros are historically better than the Rangers, but that may be changing with the way they are playing.

Houston has the most interesting sports owners??? Tell that to Mark Cuban and Jerry Jones. Love em or hate em, they are about the most interesting sports owners in existence right now .

Houston is the Hollywood of reality TV? Umm...no.

Dallas and Houston are about on par with one another for being gay friendly and for the highway system as well.

The Houston rail looks better than DART, but DART is much more extensive and will be so even with the planned expansions.

Houston was the first word spoken from the moon and Houston is more international. Ill also give Houston the point on Architecture and the skyline. I like Houston's skyline better.

Some should tell Brody the same thing for his/her list. Half of it may be so, but the other half are dreams.

Thats how you can tell a homer from someone with objectivity. A homer will say his city is better in every category just because. Someone with objectivity can realize that his city isnt the best at everything just because he/she wants it to be.

I'm sorry. I don't even know who Houston's sports owners are outside of Mcnair for the Texans. You don't hold a candle to Jerry Jones nor Mark Cuban. Sorry. Also, Dallas is a better sports city. There really is no discussion on that one. I prefer Houston over Dallas. But when it comes to sports and fashion (even though some of Dallasites like to stay behind in that aspect), Dallas comes out on top.
