Oh, washington has the redskins, nats and wizards. I assume they have a hockey team too

I am doing this with Sexy Rexy: Arizona/Phoenix, Detroit, Dallas if you count Arlington for the Rangers.

Cubsfan4evr and I had a hard time coming up with the 13th city. We put Dallas because it made the most sense- but we looked it up and Arlington is like half an hour away from Dallas. So why do the Rangers count as being "Dallas"?

Also, why does San Fran have 4? I count the Giants (MLB) and the 49ers (NFL)- and thats it. Are we also counting Oakland as well because then yes we do have 4, but the MLB and NFL have an Oakland team and a San Fran team so that seems BS. Golden State associates with both Oakland and San Fran but that's still 3 for each city. Which then could leave (and yes I had to look this up) the San Jose sharks which are the closest NHL team to either city. And if we do count the Sharks then that's a HUGE stretch. To group San Jose/ Oakland/ San Fran into one city seems BS to me- especially because I'm sure people from the Bay area associate with either one set of teams versus another.

Lastly, can we put East Rutherford New Jersey on this list? The Jets, Giants, and Nets all play in that city and the Devils (yes I also had to look this up) play in New Jersey as well. New York, NY will still have four teams (Yankees, Mets, Knicks, Islanders) but East Rutherford, NJ will also have four (Jets, Giants, Nets, Devils). Why does the city in front of your team name equal a city your associated with? And if that is the logic, why then are the Texas Rangers who play in Arlington automatically associated with Dallas?
