    If you think a city is lame you were probably just doing it wrong.
    Amen.

    I have lived in 17 states, 5 countries, and visited just about every major city in the U.S. multiple times and I have loved it everywhere .. except one city.

    It's an obvious overstatement to say having fun is completely up to you. But, yeah, you've got to have good people. ...you're more likely to find those people in certain cities, so, round n round we go. Blandiego.

    If I were choosing based on places I'd live:
    1. LA
    2. SF/Oakland/Berkeley
    3. Chicago

    I really like NYC, but I can't imagine living there for longer than a year or two.

    Good list. I was pleasantly surprised to see Miami not listed. I've lived there twice and it was okay, but way overrated imo .. try an hour south, though, heaven.

    Atlanta is a cool place not listed. Very under-rated.

    Seattle is my favorite out of that list, though San Francisco and NYC are really close behind. Denver is a fine city as well. I also like San Diego and Boston out of the major US cities I've been to.
    It started with Earl [Watson], Randy [Foye] and Marvin [Williams]–the veteran guys. I thought the young guys did a good job of following their lead getting us off to a good start. - referring to the Jazz/Bobcats game on 3/1/13

    Earl, Randy, and Marvin started the first quarter 0-3, scored a whopping zero points, and finished with a turnover in the first quarter.

    Your head coach of the Jazz ladies and gentlemen.

    I have a strange crush on St. Louis. Everybody thinks I'm crazy for that one.

    What's the scoop on Philly? That is probably the one place no one has mentioned that surprises me. I've never been there though so maybe it's not worth mentioning.
    How can he have wisdom whose talk is of bollocks?
