Ten random things:

Ten U.S. cities larger than Green Bay, Wisconsin, that have no major league professional sports teams:

  1. Las Vegas, Nevada (population 567,641)
  2. Virginia Beach, Virginia (433,575)
  3. Fresno, California (479,918)
  4. Omaha, Nebraska (454,731)
  5. Tulsa, Oklahoma (389,625)
  6. Tucson, Arizona (543,910)
  7. Albuquerque, New Mexico (529,219)
  8. Colorado Springs, Colorado (399,827)
  9. Austin, Texas (786,386)
  10. Louisville, Kentucky (566,503)

If you watched the Super Bowl last night, you may have heard that Green Bay (population 101,025) is the smallest city in America. This was, as they say, a misstatement of fact. He probably meant to say it was the smallest city in America with a major league sports franchise, but who can say? Regardless, congratulations to the Green Bay Packers on winning their fourth Super Bowl title. I didn't really care one way or the other, though I was rooting for Green Bay because I didn't want to work alongside a bunch of depressed coworkers today.

Incidentally, Austin is the largest US city without a major league professional sports team, and Salt Lake City is the next smallest, with a population of 183,102
