And it's only going to get better over time, since they looked at the last 12 months. But well, Portland is already better than, say, Oklahoma City (79). And now Seattle (32) might drop a few spots. It's also better than, uhm, Buies Creek, N.C. (250) in the right hand column. Other sports cities in the general NW direction: 59. Eugene, Ore. - Nike town 80. Pullman, Wash. 92. Spokane, Wash. - go Zags 99. Corvallis, Ore. - hey-o Timbo 289. Tacoma, Wash. 375. Tri-Cities (Pasco-Kennewick-Richland), Wash. 379. Keizer, Ore. (not Salem-Keizer) - phew, thanks for clarifying 388. Everett, Wash. 394. Vancouver, Wash. 399. Yakima, Wash.
