CLEVELAND -- Cleveland claimed the ninth spot, down from sixth last year, in a study of America's Manliest Cities.

And those hoping that the Oklahoma City Thunder beats the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals should be heartened by the fact that Oklahoma City grabbed the top spot as America's Manliest City.

The fourth annual list, created by Bert Sperling, the research expert behind the popular "Best Places to Live," in conjunction with the snack food Combos, measures manly city data, like number of home improvement stores, steak houses and motorcycles per capita.

Behind Oklahoma City are No. 2 Columbia, S.C.; No. 3 Memphis, Tenn.; No. 4 Nashville, Tenn. (last year's "America's Manliest City"); and No. 5 Birmingham, Ala.

San Diego ranked last out of the 50 cities surveyed, earning it the dubious distinction of "America's Least Manly City."

For Cleveland Browns fans, note that Pittsburgh remains in 16th place, the same place it was last year.
