Although I have lived in Ohio for twenty years, I am a Montgomery County native just like you. I've managed to maintain my allegiance to the Phillies, Flyer, and Eagles all these years. It's hard as hell being a Philadelphia sports fan, but I remain optimistic that I will see at least one more championship come home to the City of Brotherly Love in my lifetime--the last one was the 76'ers in 1983!
Patty , living here in California my whole life I have the same reaction you do to going out west. I orginially thought the Western Theater did mean at least Texas!!!! I guess it is all in where you are. I still get turned around the east coast, the ocean is in the wrong place!
