Sports is just one way for a city to have culture.

I'm currently in school in a city which has a (college) football stadium with 102,000 seats that sells out for every game, but there's a complete absence of museums, of downtown nightlife, of festivals, etc.

It's not "sad" that Montreal is off the MLB maps as it is on other maps instead.
Is MLS rising at the same rate? No sir... probably because soccer fans (like me) know that there is a parking lot full of leagues that are better than the MLS in terms of quality. I'm not saying I don't like the MLS. I enjoy MLS just as much as any other MLS fan, but it's not Major League by any means. I have been a fan of the league since 2002 and while there has been growth it hasn't grown at a rapid rate.

A lot of people in Montreal are settling. It's only my opinion but I really do want Montreal/Vancouver back on the map when it comes to sports. It's totally realistic too when it comes to our economics and growth.
