Here's an interesting game. I will start with a highway and the next person will name a city that the highway runs through. The following person will then name a highway that runs through that city. Then after that, another person will name another city that the highway runs through. Etcetera...

I'll do the first 3 to start off.

Danville, PA
Home of Geisinger Medical Center, the largest hospital in northeast and north central PA.

Also home to Danville State Hospital, a psychiatric hospital.

Historically, Danville is where the "T" rail profile was invented.

(It is also about 15-16 miles from the house that I grew up in.)

South Boston, VA is the home of South Boston speedway which is one of the storied bullrings from NASCAR's early days. It is no longer on NASCAR's top series schedules, but it is still an active race track.

Anyway, we head out of town on

Say what, hnofer17?

I've always heard he developed it in Springfield, MA.

The game of basketball, as we know it today was created by Dr. James Naismith in 1891 in Springfield, Massachusetts, to condition young athletes during the winter.
