You should maybe specify the leagues you're counting. Apparently, you're not counting the MLS (no Real Salt Lake).

I didn't see that, those where the 3 I missed. I doubt I would have guessed them anyway.

Nice quiz idea. Anaheim probably shouldn't be included based on your directions that it's based on the teams' *first* name, and Anaheim comes at the end of Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Still, nice quiz indeed.

The Angels are included under Los Angeles, the Anaheim is the Ducks

Great quiz, but the red on brown answers I missed are too difficult to read. I had to highlight them all before I could read them.

That's good... It's tough. Makes ya realize how many different names can be used for the same area (i.e. New York Metro Area with four names!)

Read the quiz title "Geographic sports team names". In this quiz you are supposed to name all of the unique first names of teams. The Phoenix Suns and the Arizona Cardinals... Yes Golden state is in Oakland but that's not what they are called..

Update needed: Atlanta is now 4 and Minnesota is now 5 with the MLS expansion. Los Angeles is now 8 with the Rams and Chargers moving, which gives San Diego 1 and St. Louis 2. And Vegas will need to be added with 1 with the NHL expansion next season.

Why is St. Louis listed with only 1 team? Blues (NHL) and Cardinals (MLB) are both still there, right?

It still says Las Vegas and just Vegas isn't accepted, you have to type LAS Vegas.
