  8. Years ago I was at a conference in London and my room mate happened to be from Philly. We were walking along a street where bottles of milk were sitting on door steps. She said, "You'd never see that in Philly as it would be gone in an instant." I just think of baseball when I hear the name Philly.

  9. I live in Northwestern PA and the truth is, round these parts, we don't consider Philly part of PA. Philly is way too Jersey.
