    I work with a guy who lives in the Boston area. He comes out to California once every two weeks and works from home the rest of the time.

    He arrived at the office this morning and proceeded to tell me how he is a Pats season ticket holder and was at the Pats game last weekend. We got to talking about this weekend's game and he said, "I'm really glad we don't have to play Baltimore again. I know we beat them twice, but they played us tough both times."

    "Baltimore?" I asked.

    "Yeah, you know, the Colts," he replied.

    "But you didn't play them twice," I said.

    "Yes we did," he replied. "We play all the teams in our division twice."

    That definitely reflects on every Pats fan, because one guy's a dumb-***... Yep, the average South Californian certainly knows more about sports than the average guy from Boston... Just like the average guy from Boston definitely knows more about surfing and the proper usage of the word "dude"...

    He is one of only 60,000 or so season ticket holders. I've never met a Chargers season ticket holder that thought the Colts were still in Baltimore and that Seattle was still in the AFC West, and I've met a lot more Chargers season ticket holders than Patriots season ticket holders.

    Clearly he is trying to intimidate us because he has "Southie" in his user name. I shivering with fear. :icon_tease:

    Yes, because I definitely figured that you'd know a little neighborhood of 30,000 people that is over 3,000 miles away... You figured me out... That's my m.o. - internet tough guy, all the way...
    So, I suppose your username must be trying to intimidate me, too??? Are you the guy from the Spin Doctors??? Because if so, I am duly scared...

    I think you just countered your own position. You lumped all of SoCal together as area that doesn't know sports (except surfing apparently) .. Maybe you should try not to stereotype us as a whole.

    He must have been the same guy I heard at Pizza Hut when the waitress asked, "Do you want your pizza sliced in 8 or 16 slices?" He replied, "Uhhhhh, you better make it 8, I can't eat 16".....:lol:

    I get out to the Boston area five or six times a year, and there is a bit of tech there, but certainly not as much as the Bay Area or Orange County.

    Plus, your donuts suck. :p

    Boston doesn't have much hi-tech stuff because of the ****** tax laws and government you guys have there. They all moved to NC or CA
