The company that owns Combos, those little cheese filled cracker/pretzel snacks came out with a list of the fifty “Manliest” cities in America. Here is a list of the top ten cities.

1.Oklahoma City, OK (▲ 2 spots)
2.Columbia, SC (▲3 spots)
3.Memphis, TN (▲ 1 spot)
4.Nashville, TN (▼ 3 spots)
5.Birmingham, AL (▲ 2 spots)
6.Houston, TX (▲ 3 spots)
7.St. Louis, MO (▲ 3 spots)
8.Toledo, OH (▲ 4 spots)
9.Cleveland, OH (▼ 3 spots)
10.Charlotte, NC (▼ 8 spots)

Apparently the criteria for being a “Manly” city, included the amount of professional sports teams, popularity of power tools, number of steak houses, and frequency of monster truck rallies. Cities also lose ranking points for emasculating characteristics like the abundance of home furnishing stores, high minivan sales, nail salons or shopping boutiques, and subscription rates to beauty magazines.

Where did Minneapolis come in on this list? Way down at number forty.

40. Minneapolis, MN (▼ 4 spots)

So, because we don’t go to a lot of monster truck rallies, and have a high number of shopping boutiques, Minneapolis isn’t considered a “Manly” city?

I’m more than ok with this ranking then.
