The Metroplex's diverse population feels most unified when one of its professional teams is performing well. If you're not sure how to start a conversation with locals, try asking about the Cowboys (football), Mavericks (basketball), Stars (hockey), or Rangers (baseball). Folks also come together for NASCAR races at Texas Motor Speedway, annual PGA golf tournaments, and horse races at Lone Star Park. If you prefer participatory sports and activities, you can do most outdoor activities here—provided they don't require a raging river or a mountain range.
