Las Vegas doesn't have a professional sports team, but where it lacks in pro sports, it makes up for it in quirky athletic teams and plentiful sporting events. The city has minor league baseball and hockey teams as well as university athletic teams, a roller derby league and a Legends Football League (formerly Lingerie Football League) team.
In addition to the teams that represent Las Vegas, dozens of sporting events are held in Las Vegas every year including the World Series of Poker, National Finals Rodeo, the Rock-n-Roll Marathon and the Michael Jordan Celebrity Invitational golf tournament.
