So ... anyone else notice that the NFL's NFC Championship game (NY Giants at SF 49ers), Sunday, 01/22/2012, was a battle between terminal cities of the Lincoln Highway?

Interestingly ... MLB's Giants moved across the LH from NY to SF.

Route 66 also boasts connections to sports franchises in Chicago, St Louis & LA....



In terms of team colors, I can only think of 1 city that has at least 3 major sports teams with the same basic 3 colors:
Pittsburgh...
...black, white, yellow/gold
...Pirates (MLB)
...Steelers (NFL)
...Penguins (NHL)

Chicago is one city that comes close, with 2 teams sporting the same 3 colors...
...black, white, red
...Bulls (NBA)
...Blackhawks (NHL)

Others?



Several cities have teams with "related" names...
...Chicago Cubs (MLB), Bears (NFL)
...Denver Rockies (MLB), Avalanche (NHL), Rapids (MLS)
...Detroit Tigers (MLB), Lions (NFL)
...Indianapolis Colts (NFL), Pacers (NBA)
...Miami Marlins (MLB), Dolphins (NFL)
...Philadelphia Eagles (NFL), Flyers (NHL)
...Seattle Mariners (MLB), Seahawks (NFL)

Others?



Team names associated with the history/story of the city/state include...
...Chicago Fire (MLS)
...Colorado Rockies (MLB)
...Dallas Cowbows (NFL)
...Detroit Pistons (NBA)
...Houston Astros (MLB)
...Miami Dolphins (NFL)
...Miami Heat (NBA)
...Milwaukee Brewers (MLB)
...Minnesota Twins (MLB)
...New England Patriots (NFL)
...New Jersey Devils (NHL)
...NY Islanders (NHL)
...NY Yankees (MLB)
...Orlando Magic (NBA)
...Philadelphia Union (MLS)
...Pittsburgh Steelers (NFL)
...St Louis Blues (NHL)
...San Francisco 49ers (NFL)
...Texas Rangers (MLB)
...Washington Capitols (NHL)
...Washington Nationals (MLB)
...Washington Senators (MLB)

Others?
