Stop. Calling. Us. Yankees.

And to answer the question, I would assume plenty of the smaller, backwards Southern or Western towns.

I was born and raised in Baltimore. I know all about It's culture and geography.

For the love of God, not another one of these "Is (insert random city here) Southern?" threads.

Any National League city would only get the Yankees in town once per season (or a second time if it's the World Series). Seriously, "Yankees?!" what decade is this?

This is a good one. I've never been though.

My vote would be Montgomery Alabama. OMG. If you've ever driven between the FL Panhandle and ATL on a steamy hazy summer day, it seems like time stands still there.

I don't think Birmingham, Nashville or Memphis are contenders. And I think of Little Rock as too removed from the South, and more an extension of Texas.

But let's be real, have we ever heard of a NYer wanting to move to those places?
