Step one. Pick a city (or a metropolitan area, like the Bay Area in California).
Step two. Pick who you think are the three best living athletes that played for that city’s teams.
There are only two rules. Besides the one that your three choices must be currently living; your three athletes must represent three different sports (you can’t have both Yogi Berra and Tom Seaver, for example.)
Though it’s not a hard and fast rule, I’d also suggest that your athletes should have had their best years while representing your chosen city. If you want to suggest Wayne Gretzky for Los Angeles; I won’t say you’re wrong, but really, his best years were with Edmonton.
I’ll start off by nominating a trio from Boston. Bobby Orr, Carl Yastrzemski and Larry Bird.
Have at it, Dopers. Which city do you think is best?
