I had no clue what a Mummer was until I became college age!!
Absolutely right, on the territorial breakdown, but now Atlantic City itself is sort of neutral territory. Having never been to a North Jersey beach or boardwalk, I can't speak for that, but based on the boards in Wildwood, the animatronics looked like the perfect place for Brian to hang out.

Actually, in South Jersey, it's NYC that's foreign. The Mummers are a trip!

Who's team is up 2-0 and the other down 2-1 in the east? Who? Who's team has only taken the lead once in their series (which happened to be the OT win)?

Come on...come on...I wanna hear ya say it...

Who has a better chance of getting out of the first round right now...the Rangers or Carolina...

Go ahead...say it....say it....

Say it.....

Every freakin' chance I get. Just give me a Newark Star Ledger under my arm and a coffee in my hand and I'm set.
OMG, Brian. Don't give away your age! How many years has it been since it was called the Newark Star-Ledger?

This was a great thread to read! Can't wait to visit The Great Wolf Lodge with the family. Thanks for sharing some pics. I too am from the North...NJ used to be a Devils Fan but moved to Charlotte over 15 years ago. Have been a Carolina Hurricanes Fan since they started here. I will be at the game this Sunday and hope they WIN the next one in NJ.

Brian, BTW I was also born in 1970 and my wife and I love DD Coffee as well....to funny! This thread had a lot of stuff in common for me.
