As is the case with many of you, the Super Bowl is on my mind. There are more important things to be concerned with at this moment in history, certainly. But those things don't have bouncy cheerleaders and 3D commercials.

Anyway, it crossed my mind that the names of the two cities whose teams are involved in the game - Pittsburgh and Phoenix - both begin with the letter "P." (And yes, I know that the Cardinals technically play their home games in Glendale, but it's classified as a suburb of Phoenix.) So my question to you:

Besides Phoenix, AZ (#5)
and Pittsburgh, PA (#59),
what THREE other American cities
whose names begin with the letter "P"
also appear on the list of the 100 most
populous cities in the United States?

Here are the ANSWERS.
