San Antonians: They're just like us!

By Ben Crandell, The home of the Spurs and the home of the Heat have more in common than you may realize. San Antonio. What more can you say? A city of laid-back humility (mirroring Spurs star Tim Duncan), it’s like South Florida’s even-more-Hispanic (65 percent), less-cosmopolitan doppelganger. They have "cruise ships" (bumping into each other on downtown’s Guadalupe River), a big art museum (in the old Lone Star Brewery), college football (hey, isn’t that ex-UM coach Larry Coker?!), and they know how to party (sometimes in a trendy neighborhood called SoFlo — how cute is that?).
