Steelers & Cowboys are national teams. Their fanbases by far overbound their markets. There are a considerable amount of Steelers & Cowboys fans in the southeast (including Maryland), largely borne out of "protest" to the Redskins
Youzers! Coastal VA and Carolina were Skins country since the days of Sonny Jurgenson until recently. Very shocked they flopped over to the Steelers..........although I am assuming it is a plurality of fans, not anything close to a majority.

But seriously, I think because Maryland is such a varied place and has had such a diverse history, it's hard to pigeonhole it.

Baltimore is an industrial city and a major port. Annapolis is maritime, as is much of the Chesapeake Bay area. The Washington, D.C. suburbs of Maryland have strong ties to that city. Western Maryland is a part of Appalachia. There are also lots of farms and wineries all over Maryland. Then you have the Atlantic coast.

Overall, the majority of Marylanders are associated with the Washington, D.C. - Baltimore metropolitan area. Still, the question is - which part of Maryland and which Marylanders are we talking about?

Do Wisconsinites get tired of being associated with cheese? Not just no, but hell no!

So, as an outsider who has never been to Maryland, here are some things that the state is known for:

John Hopkin's
US Naval Academy/Annapolis
The FDA
The US Census
Goddard Space Center
Crabs
Crime (sorry, but true. This should be #1)


Well, Baltimore is not the whole state, with respect to crime. I would say look no further then who's been running the state for the past 70 plus years for that reason, starts with a big D!

The crime rate in just two jurisdictions lands Maryland in the Top 10 Most Dangerous States list year after year.

Just missed it last year, #11

I used to love Baltimore. I moved here in 1960. Now I hate it here. Crime is out of control, all crime not just murders. Drivers are very dangerous and the police do little. Trash all over the streets. Steal your mail. Something is wrong. Although I see most people in Baltimore as very nice,friendly and hard working, there is a significant minority who have not been adequately socialized. And the government is totally inept.

That was a corny response, because I know that some Wisconsinites are tire of that labeling themselves, but can't do too much about it

Democrats are soley to blame in this instance. Racist conservative whites (who masquerade as liberal/neo-liberal Democrats) are just as responsible for many problems.

Maryland is known for the Social Security Administration as well. Maryland is one of the few states where recording interactions with the police (pre Alvarez) could have you imprisoned for life. It is also home to Elijah Cummings a Democrat in Congress voted on solely because of the color of his skin who don't want you to record your interactions with the Internal Revenue Service and quite a few years back he was on the House floor in Congress, on C-SPAN affirm such.

Is home to Larry, a Democrat who lives in Chevy Chase, who works 4 days a week at the Department of No Energy. Larry called in several years back to the Mark Levin show stating the free market sucks, and he works for a department that produces no energy for only 4 days a week.

In Maryland, it is illegal to record calls without the other parties consent and offers strict jail time where you can serve more time than the average bank robber.

It is also home of Senator Cardin who is a real piece of work, hates Trump, and hates America.

It's a real S-0-hole.
