Does that include something like San Francisco, which is a City and a County simultaneously?
No. In these cases there is absolutely no county involved, even nominal.
So, not Jacksonville/Duval, or Miami/Dade.
I took a two hour nap and cried during parks and Rec. it was awesome and terrifying.

One is Carson City, NV. No idea on the others.
Carson City is correct. Expected it to be the hardest, but also suspected you might know.

Other two are "big" cities in the major-league sense.

I guessed that too, but apparently it's a city-parish, like San Francisco and other city-counties.
And his one problem is he didn’t go to Russia that night because he had extracurricular activities, and they froze to death.

A roughly educated guess will be the Tigers since I know they won in the 80s and not since.
