Louisville Has Memphis Envy 

"Some places, like Oklahoma City and Memphis (which outhustled Louisville for the Grizzlies), are relatively the same size as Louisville. In fact, Oklahoma City ranked 47th, four spots behind Louisville on the list of largest U.S. metropolitan areas.

"But enough folks in places like Memphis, Salt Lake City and Charlotte, N.C., believe the addition of a pro sports team (and some NCAA March Madness) actually makes the town a more interesting and dynamic place.

"I didn't say a better place. I didn't say a city has to have a pro sports team to improve its self-esteem or consider itself a wonderful place to raise a family."

So writes Louisville Courier-Journal sports columnist Rich Bozich. They sooooo envy us. Poor bastards. Read more whining here.
