Does everyone in St. Louis go fishing and hunting? Or are there good 'city' aspects to St. Louis too? Below is a link of a 'study' that looks at the 'manliness' of U.S. cities, St. Louis is #6, you'd be surprised who's #1...

Those kinds of "rankings" are silly, and this one is particularly flawed because it's relying on archaic indicia of what it means to be a "man." They must have been relying on the metro area as a whole because the City is only "manly" in the sense that people are into going to Cards games and drinking beer. Hunting/fishing/driving big trucks is more of a suburban/rural thing. And for what it's worth, Nashville has never struck me as particularly "manly."

Yeh, if we limited most rankings to St. Louis City only...we'd be number nothing in everything. Just stirring the pot.

We'd be #1 in the highest increase of young professionals and #2 in the number of museums and libraries per capita

Unfortunately, we're also pretty high up there in crime as well. Funny how they only use the City for crime rankings, but most of these "soft" rankings take into account the whole metro area. Yeah that seems fair...

Well of course. When you live way out in St. Charles County there's going to be some rednecks. What did you expect?

That's also not shocking. People visit downtown from far and wide, and a lot of so-called rednecks are in town all the time for Cards, Blues, and Rams games (sports events tend to attract those kinds of people by default). Now, the resident population of downtown is a different story.
