Sure, Louisville might only be the 16th largest city in the union, and we're probably not going to win any arena-naming awards, but there are a few things that this town does better than anywhere else. Here are just 18...
1. Small town feeling, big town swagger

There are people here who go from late February to early November without having clear sinuses one time. Thank you, Ohio River Valley.
