I think Florida may be harder to categorize than TX.

"So really, aside from our cool flag, delicious crabs, and wonderful college basketball team, MD isn't a state that has a strong statewide character."

MD in a nutshell, especially Terps' basketball , and I think we should just leave it at that...

You mean the basketball team that is in a southern conference? I think UMD fans get far more riled up when they play Duke, UNC or UVA than Penn State or Rutgers.

I mean, at this point I think we are all beating a herd of dead horses, but it's certainly interesting to see what points of reference we are all using.

When I was in Upper Marlboro a few weeks ago I heard several people talk with a southern accent........
