My New York friends make fun of me for living in what they alternately call 'flyover country' and 'Indianowhere'. I tend to fight them tooth and nail, reminding them we have some fine advantages here. For instance, it is not a liability to own a car here. Monthly parking can be paid for with coins instead of the equivalent of my mortgage payment.
Sometimes, the locals do things in support of your team that make you think, "I wish they were on the other side". Fortunately, it has been increasingly the case that the other teams have been caught being ridiculous far more than us. The latest? A Bedford, IN Kerry supporter who offered to place an anti-Bush tattoo on her head for the highest bid on Ebay.
