6. If you hear someone say "pahk the cah in hahvad yahd" one more time you're going to slap them upside the head.
7. Anything past Worcester is "the middle of nowhere"
8. You are amazed when traveling out of town that people who work at McDonald's speak English.
9. You think it's not actually tailgating unless your bumper is touching the car in front of you.
10. You know that a yellow light means at least 5 more cars can get through.....
11. and that a red light means 2 more can.
12. Crown Victoria = undercover cop.
13. Subway is a fast food place. The transportation system is known as the "T", and only the "T".

15. There are 6 Dunkin Donuts within 20 minutes of your house.

24. You've honked at someone because they didn't peel out the second.
the light turned green.
25. All the potholes just add excitement to your driving experiences.
26. Stop signs mean slow down a little, but only if you feel like it.
27. 6 inches of snow is considered a "dusting".
28. 3 days of 90+ heat is definitely a "heat wave" and 63 degree weather is "wicked warm".
29. $15 to park is a bargain.
30. You cringe every time you hear some actor/actress try to do the Boston accent, even if they were born here.

'Makes me WONDER when it'll turn to Spring!?...

...'Drove by this morning...
Mighty neighborly of you to let those "bikers" use your place in the OFF season...
BlackStuddedLeather is IN this year!
My Troy-Built snow blower can handle the "dusting" but it WILL have a problem when it sucks up all those empty beer cans in the driveway! :D

Mike the only NY team I can watch without waves of nausea coming over me are the Giants. But then they play in NJ. :razz:

I hope you didn't mean the NY giants of this year, cause they were more nauseating than boston losing to the yankees.

Between the way the Pats played and chasing after kids, the Giants sorta were in a nether world this year. From what I've heard thats how there season went.
