30 Ways to know you are from Lehigh Valley, PA...
1. You think its hilarious that getting into New Jersey is free, but you have to PAY to get out. 2. You take pride in the fact that after crossing into PA (from NJ) there is a sign that says "Welcome to Pennsylvania, America Starts Here". 3. You thought everyone in the world had 2 or 3 different choices for ABC NBC CBS and FOX (this reception is getting fuzzy, there must be a storm in Philly, I'll just switch to the New York Channel). 4. You've never had to explain that you are really from Pennsylvania, not someplace in the middle east (Bethlehem, Egypt, Nazareth, Emmaus). 5. You think Industrial Parks are better uses of the land then Farms. 6. You actually can show people the dairy where your milk comes from. 7. You've never thought that Walmarts are "creeping in" from the South. 8. If it takes less than ten minutes to get to a mall but more than 10 minutes to park and get inside. 9. When Roadside America isn't a warm nostalgic idea but a place you've passed on I-78. 10. If you can go to a church bazaar every night all summer and not go to the same one twice (and not win at bingo either). 11. If you lived somewhere between Mario Andretti's place and Larry Holmes' place and yet never watched a Race or a Prize Fight. 12. If you have rooted for either side in a Lehigh - Lafayette game. 12a. If you own a piece of Lehigh-Lafayette memorabilia (a brick glued to a plaque, a cylindrical piece of white wood from a supposed goal post from a certain year, etc.). 13. If you prefer Yocco's over Pott's or vice versa. 14. If you think Quakertown is far away (25 minutes by car) but you think nothing of driving 15 minutes one way to pick up a friend and then backtrack another 25 to get your girlfriend and then another 10 to get your friend's girlfriend and then another 20 to go to the movies on a Friday night. 15. If you've ever been to a 'platz. 16. If you've ever said to yourself "Damn, I need two more tickets" while attending a platz. 17. If you or any of your relatives have ever "worked the beer tent". 18. You know when Rice's is open for business and plan accordingly. 19. If you know the real reason kids have off from school the Monday after Thanksgiving (opening day of Buck season). 20. When you and your co-workers discuss the "game last weekend" on Monday morning, you're referring to high school football. 21. You think the PP&L Building and Martin's Tower are skyscrapers. 22. If you finish every sentence with "dontchano". 23. You can get pierogies in every restaurant. 24. You actually think ring baloney is good. 25. Ring baloney is an appetizer at most black tie events. 26. You think the Morning Call has a great sports section. 27. You haven't figured out the correlation between the name Scrapple and what's in it! 28. The freak show at the Allentown Fair has more normal looking people than the people attending the fair 29. You've been stuck in traffic on Rt 22. 30. You know that 7th Street, MacArthur Road and Rt 145 are the same stretch of road
