Interesting Dallas Sports Fact

Next year when the NHL All Star game comes to Dallas: Dallas will join Los Angeles as the ONLY cities to have host all 4 Major Sports All Star Games.

1971 - NFL Pro Bowl
1986 - NBA All Star Game
1995 - MLB All Star Game
2007 - NHL All Star Game

1973 Pro Bowl, not the 1971 Pro Bowl, was played in Irving, TX.

You would have to say Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex since Arlington hosted the MLB All-Star game and Irving hosted the NFL Pro Bowl.

Los Angeles hosted the NBA and NHL All-Star games at Staples Center, the MLB All-Star game at Dodger Stadium and the 1971 Pro Bowl was played at the LA Memorial Coliseum.

Staples, Dodger and LA Memorial all have a Los Angeles zip code.

Not sure of the other sports but for the Pro Bowl only LA Memorial Coliseum and Aloha Stadium have the distinction of hosting it multiple times (LA hosted it from 1951-1972, 1979 and Aloha has hosted it since 1980)
