Midland,Texas-white collar stereotype is mostly true.Another stereotype is that were mostly oil and gas and thats very true. Another true stereotype is that were krazy about the Friday Night Lights.

Why not?

Milwaukee:

Baseball: check.
Basketball: check.
Football: GB, check.
Hockey:

Despite Wisconsin being perhaps the most fitting climate for a hockey team, and Wisconsin being a big sports centric state, I don't understand why it wouldn't be possible.

Denver, CO: Mountain obsessed, outerwear formal, heavy "social" beer drinkers, heavy "social" pot heads, favoring recreational drugs.

Not everyone obviously...but a much higher percentage than anywhere else in the country. I think Seattle beats Denver for heavy Marijuana consumption though.

It takes several guys to do this, requires more force than pushing a car.

Almost the most fitting but your western neighbor probably takes that crown. Still, WI needs hockey.

A little thing called Chicago is why not. We don't have the population or media share. Trust me, I'd be the first in line for season tickets but it's not practical. We have the Admirals, a 90 mile train ride to the Blackhawks or a 80 mile car ride to see the Badgers. We're good. My kids are in youth hockey here and they have a great program but hockey isn't exactly huge in Milwaukee.

The Pettit family actually considered buying the Hartford Whalers and relocating them to Milwaukee and then considered an expansion team but balked at the fee. They build the Pettit Olympic speed skating/ice rink instead.

But back to the topic, Wisconsin has a lot of cheese. There are cheese stores up and down every highway in the state. Oh, and frozen custard. Yummy frozen custard. And beer everywhere. I can walk to two beer gardens in public parks from my house.

No representation for the City of Brotherly Love? We have plenty of stereotypes (some true, others not so much). Here are the ones I think hold water.

Philadelphia:
Sports crazed, ravenous fans: Google "grease the light poles" or "Gritty tattoo" for starters.

Rude, angry, unlawful and dangerous drivers: it is really worse than anywhere I have lived or visited, and I have lived and visited quite a few places. People will go around you for stopping at stop signs, honk after 1/2 sec of a light changing to green, cut you off at pedestrian right-aways, and drive on the (very narrow) shoulder of 76 to cut traffic. The list goes on.

Good food: I think this is generally understood about the city, but what may not be understood is that it goes far beyond cheesesteaks and pretzels.

Trash: The problem is ridiculous in *some* parts of the city. What is often not understood is that many parts of the city are beautiful and well kept.

There are many more stereotypes about the city, but I think they are often exaggerated or simply untrue. The city has a ways to go to shake many of its negative stereotypes and hype up the positive transformation the city has undergone in the last decade or so.
