It means they have bars, steak houses and firemen. Or something like that.

Likely that if you live in Portland, good luck finding a ticket to the new "Twilight" movie.

I moved from Cincinnati to Columbus a year ago and now Cincinnati has dropped 16 spots in manliest rankings and Columbus has moved up five...coincidence?

I'm still trying to figure out how Mars determined that San Antonio isn't one of the Top 50 largest metro areas. The fine print in the article says that the list ranks the top 50 census SMSAs. According to the July 2009 estimates (http://www.census.gov/popest/metro/CBSA-est2009-pop-chg.html), the San Antonio SMSA is #28, 4 behind Cincinnati at #24. :confused:

Does Joey Votto have something to do with Cincinnati's fall from manliness?

FWIW Portland = City with most strip clubs per capita.

A city needs its hobbies.

Might be the only city in country where people ride their bikes to strip clubs. ;)

It's surely unique.

Can't think of a place that has more alternative health facilities.

Dickerson had a set back last week when he tried to begin a rehab assignment for Triple-A Louisville.

“I couldn’t get through the second round of batting practice,” he said. “It’s been frustrating. I’ve tried every form of alternative medicine to get the ligament to relax.”

Dickerson had a cortisone shot yesterday.

Dickerson should have taken a trip out to Portland before settling for the cortisone shot.
