I grew up in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, so I am always interested to see it mentioned in the media. Almost always.

The map shown here came from an article in Spain's latest iSport magazine about the "10 Temples of Sport" in the United States. The text says that these three temples are:

- "Indianápolis Motor Speedway, Indianápolis, IN. Nascar"

- "Churchill Downs, Louisville, KE. Derby Kentucky"

- "Detroit, MI. Los Red Wings"

Go, team. You have already vanquished the Proofreaders.
