Dude... it's Nevada vs. Iowa... what do you expect?


I know, I'm just being loyal to my state. A large dirty barren region has one of the greatest cities of all time in it, therefore it changes everything. Ahh well. Its not like either would get out of the second round match anyway.


Yeah, I agree with that... and good for you being loyal to your home state, even if it is Iowa... I can't talk, i've never been there (what reason would I have?) but Vegas does put it over the top. And don't forget legal prostitution, Reno 911 and Elvis.

Both states are pretty empty, but Vegas beats out the filled parts of Iowa.

Matt Williams is from Carson City. I played at this field he used to play at, he hit a HR over 450 ft onto the freeway. Joe Conforte is currently in Brazil hiding from the Feds for tax evasion. He used to own the Mustang Ranch. (Do a google search if you don't know what that is). Mark Twain lived in Virginia City. We own the silver market. Lake Tahoe looks like this:

Also, Nevada beats Iowa because the Field of Dreams has a telephone line running through the outfield. How uncool is that?

Also, no last call at our bars. You can drink 24 hrs a day if you wanted to. Or if you could handle it. :-*

It might be of Heavenly. I don't really know. Just grabbed some stuff off of Google image search. But, if it is, I figure it's close enough to South Shore to count.
