That’s right, Nashville topped a list that ranked manly 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 grabbed the top spot in the ranking thanks to its high number of NASCAR enthusiasts, popularity of hunting and fishing, and concentration of barbecue restaurants.
In case you were wondering, New York City ranked 50 of 50.

Every time I buy bagels for a work meeting in DC, my colleagues from the Northeast end up in a conversation about how you can’t get a good bagel outside of New York or Boston. Apparently not even the faux Southerners of DC can replicate this northeastern delicacy.
Here’s what I had for breakfast in a Nashville restaurant on Saturday morning: two scrambled eggs, country ham and bacon cured on the premises, sausage patties, stone ground grits with a touch of sugar, made-from-scratch biscuits with red-eye gravy or homemade preserves, and Dr. Pepper served in a mason jar, all for $12. I think Southerners pretty well have the lockdown on the DC breakfast complaints.
