Just knowing about all it has to offer-amazing weather,celebs,palm trees,beaches,hot women,etc- Why does it seem so many people DONT like it there?

What exactly is it? Is THAT difficult to get around out there? Is is just too ghetto in some area's?
There is probably a lot you could say about gangs, pretentiousness, smog, houses on tiny property but I'd rather slit my wrists than deal with that traffic regularly. It's rush hour 24/7 there.

Sorry, no... I'm a man. My shows are on ESPN, ESPN 2, sports radio (1050 ESPN Radio, 880 WFAN when they talk sports), YES, and MSG. The only thing ever on my TV is sports. I'm listening to 1050 NYC ESPN Radio right now on the 1050 website.

GO YANKEEEEEES!

Actually, ESPN executives are splitting it to a bicoastal thing... Keeping its Bristol, CT roots and base (headquarters) while making an extension to LA (no headquarters). I listen to it all day, buddy. I know sports like you wouldn't believe and the fact that my friend's friend works for ESPN will also get me some more information.
