When VY went to Tennessee, Austin became a Titans market. The Titans are a division rival of the Texans. Anyone who has lived in Austin knows that TONS of Houstonians have relocated to central Texas (for obvious reasons).
And the Spurs are only sorta the hometown team. There are Mavs and Rockets fans in Austin thanks to UT, but San Antonio is only 70 miles away. (Dallas and Houston are much farther.) And the Toros are based in Austin.
With all the development along I-35, Austin and San Antonio are fast becoming a two-city metroplex. But people in Austin still look at you like with pity if you're from San Antonio. It's frustrating.
