There are no real (NFL-standard) football stadiums, no MLB-standard basball stadiums and no NBA/NHL-standard arenas in Virginia. What has caused VA to fall behind poorer/smaller states like North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee and Louisiana in having professional sports facilities and having a professional sports franchise?
I don’t know and you have a really good question.

What are some of your first thoughts when you hear the state mentioned or see something about it? What are some of your first assumptions when you think of Louisiana people. What do you know about Louisiana culture?
For those who don’t know: No, we aren’t popular for country music. There’s actually nothing "country" about us, unless it is some of the people who’ve moved in from the neighboring states. 🙂 Even the movies get our accents wrong. =)
As for Katrina, I know no one "mooching" off of the government from it. Trailers were given to residents after Katrina b/c they had no other place to go. *IF* the government actually gets these back they get destroyed, not even used for scraps. Whether someone lives in a Fema Trailer or not is there own business. And for some people, moving on is easier said than done.
But some people just won’t be able to understand unless they go through something similar – which I hope none of you have to do.
I think of it as a laid back, fun loving State.
