San Francisco ranks low on ‘manly city’ list .

San Francisco is the 48th on a list of 50 of "manly" cities.
– Who knew? Apparently having too many home furnishing stores in your city is a sign of being “unmanly.”

At least that’s the conclusion of a study released this week that ranks “America’s Manliest Cities” on criteria such as the number of professional major league sports teams, popularity of tools and hardware and frequency of monster truck rallies.

Nashville came out on top in the study conducted by Sperling’s BestPlaces. New York City finished last out of 50 of the largest U.S. metropolitan areas.Rounding out the top five were: Charlotte, N.C., Oklahoma City, Cincinnati and Denver.

San Francisco was toward the bottom of the list, ranking 48th. It did, however, outrank New York City, which placed last at No. 50.

Detroit isn't even on the list, but Grand Rapids is.


That's funny, because when I went to my class reunion in GR a few years back, everyone kept asking me "You do what, where?", like they are afraid of Detroit.


New Yorkers are wimps. They think they are tough and mean. When I went there in 1990, I was walking around Central Park alone, wearing a "Bad Boys" Pistons hat. This big guy walked up to me and asked me if I was from Detroit or the suburbs. I told him Detroit, and he said "Have a nice day" and walked away. To this day, I wonder if he was planning to mug me until he realized that a white girl from Detroit must be pretty tough.

I live just north of 8 Mile Rd, and I passed that trailer park every day while they were shooting the movie. I swear Enimen used to go to my church when the famous woman I won't name was the pastor.


But I grew up 145 miles away, in suburban Grand Rapids, so it really isn't my story. It is a good movie, though. I went to my mom's church in GR about the time it was at theaters, and the people there kept asking me "Is Detroit really like that", and I had to say "yes".
