There's no place like NY for a baseball game. The crowds are the WORLD's most knowledgeable and enthusiastic about the game. And if you watched either the Mets (Let's Go Mets!) or Yankees (boo!) games right after 9/11 and did not have chills running down your back with the emotion that people en masse can have...then you just ain't alive.

From this upstater...who happens to love upstate NY...NYC is THE BEST city in the World!

DUDE.....YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT "UPSTATE" IS. BEING THAT YOU LIVE DOWN STATE.

And yea we have attitude when people write crap like this we usually will not sit and take it , if thats attitude so be it ,better then cowering in the corner and letting people walk all over you. The other attitude is we get things done now and expect others to also not sit around and wait till they are ready, that is one of the big problems with the southerners they have the old lets put off today what I can do next week after the catfishbite is over. But if you treat us nice you could not ask for a better friend that would stand by you. So loose your attitude your bringing it with you.
I think there are too many stereotypes going on.......i know southern people who wouldnt be afraid to be direct and to the point and they have no fear of anyone....and i also know southern people who work hard and like things done fast before they sit back and enjoy thier catfish.....and i know some New Yorkers that dont speak up in some situations too......and some that dont get things done fast either.........i just think it has to do with someones personality ..not where they are from

Yea that is the whole point! everyone is stereo typing so I figured I would also, from our point. Makes no sense does it? there are pissy people all over . P.S. Miami does not count as down south.

the attitude is part of the fun. example:

a few years back, my girlfriend and I were at the P&G Cafe on the West Side, getting sauced on pints of McSorley's. of course, we got hungry. so i walk a few blocks down to this pizza joint (it was 1:00 am and ordered a pie. it was gonna be a few minutes so i decide to go back to the bar and keep drinking. on the way back, i see a guy walking towards me wearing the exact same jacket i am (the 4th time this has happened in 3 days, mind you). the guy is on his phone and i thought it'd be best not to disturb him. but i just had to say something. as we're about to intersect in front of the bar, i say drunkardly "'ey, nice jacket." the guy, still walking, looks back at me, then down at his (our) jacket and yells: "Hey F*** you's!!!" the drunk bum standing outside the bar with the yankees hat on started laughing and pointing at the guy, making the interlude that much more entertaining.

long story short, the pie was great and we still tell the story to this day. to me, its one of the things that make the city great. you really dont have to curb your frankness. people expect it.

Technically, the Catskills is Southern Tier. I always considered it upstate until I moved to the Catskills and I was corrected. I think saying "Ilive in the Catskills" is the easiest way not to get yelled at

Maybe you're right...I should have said The Catskills. But I thought southern tier was right over the shelf above the state of PA? While The Catskills does extend there...I live on the eastern edge in Greene County...no southern tier, there.
