    Speaking as a New York dwelling Red Sox fan, I couldn't agree more. I defected when we were living in Boston, and my wife took on Red Sox fandom. Now, it gives me great joy to see the Yankees DFL in the standings.

    Thank god..

    In my opinion, I think a lot of what annoys people is the pace that people are used to functioning at. "Slow", doesn't really exist in NYC unless you're a tourist. Everyone else has somewhere to go/something to do, and needed to be there 5 minutes ago. So, when those people go visit somewhere that functions a bit more slowly...such as the South, or Upstate NY/VT/NH/ME, they don't really "fit in" too well.

    I live in NJ, which is basically what results when you take people from NYC and move them to suburbs/towns.

    It's a worse ratio in NYC than it is in, say, San Francisco, Philadelphia, or Washington, I've noticed. Pittsburgh was similar; some people are football fans, but a WHOLE LOT are Steelers fans only.

    Ahh I love New York steryotypes. I was born and raised near Rochester.
    My favorite;
    "Where are you from?"
    "I'm from New york"
    everyone else's next question "OHHHHH WHAT'S THE CITY LIKE!1!!!!???? LOLZ"


    N.Y. is great, just have to watch out for those gangsters from Conneticuit.

    As far as I know, the worst sports fan ratio is in Green Bay, Wisconsin.

    The wait time for season tickets is 35 years, so many people designate recipients for them in their wills or put newborn babies on the waiting list.

    Then there's the story about the female fan who had a heart attack during a game and waited until the end to go to the hospital.

    Ha! I live in Brighton. And I used to work for Kodak. I ate a garbage plate earlier today. Described correctly, I am a walking Rochester stereotype.

    Except Boston, where they're all just morons.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    If only you listened to Bob Lounsberry back in the day, you would be the quintessential Rochester steryotype.

    Hurray for the fast ferry!!

    Bob Lounsberry? Never heard of him. I used to listen to Brother Wease, though. Does that count for any Rochester stereotype points?

    Ahh brother Wease, funny guy, 96.5 right?. Bob Lounsberry was a conservative talkshow host on A.M. 1180.
    You know, I rather liked Brighton, for the short time I went to M.C.C. The drive always sucked though.

    Damn 490...:steam:
