Some cities have reputations for having an attitude. These are places where fools are not suffered gladly, and certain traditions are held in high regard, whether you like it or not.

These are places where fools are not suffered gladly, and certain traditions are held in high regard, whether you like it or not.
We like our foods, we like our teams, we like our neighborhoods, got a problem with that? Chicago comes to mind, as does New York. And any city that throws snowballs at Santa Claus has got an attitude. Like Philadelphia.
I grew up in the Philly area. We like our cheesesteaks and hoagies, pretzels with mustard, and when we go on vacation, we don’t go to the beach, we go down the shore. And maybe we talk a little funny.
I caught this spot from WPVI, the market’s ABC O&O, during the ESPY Awards.
It seemed appropriate to a male audience and it certainly spoke to hard-core Philadelphians about our love of traditions like Tastykake, Big-5 basketball, and Action News. Don’t ask, it’s a Philly thing.
Although I grew up in the Philly suburbs, I did live in the Dallas-Fort Worth area for a while.
No, I NEVER became a Dallas Cowboys fan — it’s not genetically possible. But I did admire the Texas independent spirit, and the relationships Texans have with their pickup trucks.
In Texas, pickups are work vehicles and they’re often dirty from life on the range. Some are tricked out and bad-ass, and their owners are proud of them and love them like they would their horse.
Perhaps some even give them names. Like the news truck here from the NBC-Owned affiliate in DFW.
