My uncle commuted from Philadelphia to New York his whole life on the train. I know people who live in Costa del Sol, Spain and work in London. I don't think commuting is the main point of reference. Especially since there are significant corporate campuses located near Riverside that cause people to move down there. The public school districts are some of the most competitive in the country. Riverside is too insignificant in population combined with too close in proximity to Los Angeles to not be considered a part of the greater LA region. Hell, San Diego is practically a part of the LA metro region, depending how liberal the definition.
Your take on county's and "metro" areas is just to confusing to be of practical use. Everything about Orange County screams that the county is it's own thing. It has it's own major university. It has it's own downtown areas. It has it's own base of industry. It's own entertainment.
That’s true. They have their own baseball team. The Los Angeles Angels
Yea.. It's honestly super weird. But for whatever reason the Angels have never wanted to be known as the Orange County Angels. I don't know why, but that's where they are located. I don't really know why they changed to the Los Angeles Angels form the Anaheim Angles, but the LA tv market does crazy things to franchises. Just look at the Chargers complete implosion in trying to move to LA.
