    Thank you Jenni. Honestly, Philly isnt as bad as you all say. And considering I've spent the past 3 years up in New York, I've grown more appreciative of my hometown. So :p

    Hey...we spend our lives having our home state being bashed by everyone. Including residents. :p


    Jenni, I look at spending time with new friends a little more important than the surroundings that I am in. ;)


    Mostly, my bashing of Philly is mostly due to the Sports teams. But I have seen some bad parts of Philly.

    Granted, Camden, Newark, Patterson, Irvington and a few other towns in Jersey are just as bad.

    I will not deny it.

    But honestly...I pretty much dislike city life.

    I am a suburbanite.

    The one part I went to in Philly last weekend, University City, was actually quite nice. My friend works for Penn and attended there, and he showed us Penn and whatnot...I did have a nice time when I was there.

    Although I don't like Center City at ALL.

    Just a FYI, the Philly Outer Rim is based in King of Prussia, PA not Philadelphia.

    Anyone who has been to KOP knows that it is a great place to spend all your money!! [face_laugh]

    And after living in NJ for 25 years, I have plenty to say about living in the Pine Barrens!!! Don't even get me started on Pineys!! [face_laugh]


    ;)

    King of Prussia = best spot to drop $300 in one day in the Philly metro area. :p

    Ok, my 2 cents time (grab a chair and a Snickers)

    Philly, like any other major metropolitan area, has its good parts and bad. Living so close to NYC, I guess you become accustomed to the Good parts being a little BIGGER and further away from the bad parts. I have accoutns all around that burg, and I've seen alot of it. Germantown Pike in Chestnut Hill is my favorite.

    NJO gets ALOT of beatin's because of the state's reputation. I happen to love the state I live in, and are happy when people bash it; GOOD! STAY OUT. We'll keep the shores, entertainment, skiing, camping, city life, etc. to ourselves. I KNOW that no one would be dumb enough to come on OUR boards and bash the Garden State. That would not be proper.
    I travel this great (eek) North East daily and can tell you that I am happy with where I live.

    **DarthGyos's pro-NJ speech is over. He steps gracefully off his soap box**

    I would like to invite the newcomer and all newbies to attend a meeting and see for yourselves that we are fun loving folks with a few things in common: The love of Star Wars, A passion for fine BBQ, and a hatred for GOA (Mike).

    just kidding-

    Later

    That's OK Gary. I know you're kidding.


    Not everyone loves BBQ.
