Five stories that have North Texas talking: America's Team is worth a pretty penny; the choir at First Baptist Church of Dallas is behind Trump's new anthem; step into a room of infinite mirrors; and more.

A year earlier, the Broncos were valued at $1.45 billion.

The Ravens were ranked the 27th most valuable sports franchise by Forbes on Wednesday, the same spot they placed in last year's rankings. Spanish rivals Barcelona drop down 1 place from third to fourth whilst Real Madrid dropped 3 places to fifth.

The Baltimore Orioles, Washington Capitols and Washington Wizards were not ranked in the top 50.

Owner Jerry Jones bought the Cowboys in 1989 for $150 million, including $10 million to cover deferred salaries, according to Forbes, and built America's Team into a $4.2 billion franchise. Despite the nice growth in overall value to $1.88 billion from last year's valuation of $1.53 billion, the percentage drop in growth is quite a bit, since last year the Chiefs increased in value almost 40 percent year over year. Other Premier League teams alongside United include Manchester City, Arsenal and Chelsea.

29 of the 32 National Football League franchises made the list.

The Los Angeles Rams (formerly of St. Louis) made the list at No. 12 overall, and valued at $2.9 billion.

The Chiefs enjoyed an overall value increase, per Forbes, of 23 percent over the previous year.
