3 – Trivia in a New York Minute

The five cities that have at least one team in the MLB, NBA, NHL, and NFL that play within the city limits are Los Angeles (Dodgers, Clippers/Lakers, Kings, Chargers/Rams), Chicago (Cubs/White Sox, Bulls, Blackhawks, Bears), Denver (Rockies, Nuggets, Avalanche, Broncos), Detroit (Tigers, Pistons, Red Wings, Lions), and Philadelphia (Phillies, 76ers, Flyers, Eagles).  The cities of Phoenix, San Francisco, Washington, Miami, Boston, Minneapolis, New York, and Dallas all have teams in the four major sports leagues, but instead of playing within the city limits, these cities have teams within their metropolitan areas. For instance, the New York Giants and Jets represent New York, but play at MetLife Stadium, which is in New Jersey.
