    Texas shouldn't be only known for its affinity of football and party schools.  Earlier this week, Dallas-Fort Worth was named the most top pop culture-knowledgeable city in the country by NTN Buzztime.

    The award should come with some credibility, as the NTN interactive games are found in most sports bars across the country.

    Answering questions like "Which quarterback was rescued by Ace Ventura" and "In what video did Britney Spears dress as a schoolgirl," DFW trivia-hounds outscored more than 200 other cities in the union during a month-long competition called Trendalicious where gamers were tested on their knowledge of TV, music, movies and trends of the 1990s.

    The answers are Dan Marino and "Hit Me Baby One More Time" in case you were curious.

    Those who performed worse than Dallas-Fort Worth:
    2. Phoenix
    3. Chicago
    4. Denver
    5. Minneapolis - Saint Paul
    6. Los Angeles
    7. Tampa - Saint Petersburg - Sarasota
    8. Detroit
    9. Houston
    10. Saint Louis
    11. Milwaukee
    12. Cincinnati
    13. Washington DC
    14. Cleveland - Akron - Canton
    15. Nashville
    16. New York
    17. Kansas City
    18. Orlando - Daytona Beach - Melbourne
    19. Indianapolis
    20. Las Vegas
    21. Grand Rapids - Kalamazoo - Battle Creek
    22. Philadelphia
    23. Oklahoma City
    24. Portland
    25. Columbus OH

    Bottom 10 Cities
    196. Tri-Cities
    197. Burlington
    198. Bend
    199. Presque
    200. Binghampton
    201. Eugene
    202. Fresno
    203. Monterey
    204. Bakersfield
    205. Meridian

    Disappointing its residents, Bakersfield, Calif. and Meridian, Miss., came in last place, proving people in these cities need to spend more time reading PerezHilton.com and watching Extra or VH1.
