I’ve lived in the Fort Worth area most of my 73 years, and I thought that I knew the area fairly well.

But while watching the TCU-Baylor game on Saturday, I learned something new.

One of the announcers told us that a particular player was from Mansfield, Texas, and then added that Mansfield is “a suburb of Dallas.”

Golly gee! I never knew, or even suspected!

Mansfield is closer to being a suburb of Arlington or Grand Prairie.
