if you have the cowboys, you should have the rangers... they also play in arlington.
Dec 12th, 2009 at 09:07 GMT
But they're called the Texas Rangers, not the Dallas Rangers.

Tampa Bay refers to the entire metropolitan region which covers the cities of Tampa, St. Petersburg, and Clearwater. So that one is correct.

I thought at first you were looking for nicknames that don't match because the team moved, such as the Utah Jazz.
Dec 12th, 2009 at 14:31 GMT
Yeah, I'm sorry. All these teams play in suburbs and in all those cases the team name implies the metropolitan area, which none of them are outside of. Also, based on your criteria, you're missing Bills and Coyotes and probably some others.
Jan 12th, 2010 at 19:10 GMT
using your criteria you are missing a few...Buffalo Bills, Phoenix coyotes, etc

Xavier...Tampa Bay is a body of water, Tampa is a city and the Rays play in St. Pete.

Technically, the Ottawa Senators play in Kanata, Ontario.

^^ Kanata used to be a city on its own, but now it's been amalgamated into Ottawa. So the Senators wouldn't count for this quiz either.
