Yeah, this thread has seen a lot of play. I expect once its retired we can do something like what you suggest, just to keep it manageable. Anything beats trying to look through 36 pages.

Thanks for the feedback. Hopefully we can make it work.

I have PMed some of this to some of our visitors in the past, and added this morning as the day went on. I don't know if its helpful for ayone else. If you want to use it for anything, go for it. I can also comb through it and make it more detailed, etc, instead of using links if any one is interested. I also don't mind people PMing if they need any more info, or if other HF users want to PM me and idea, etc, Ill add/subtract from this.

Just a thought.

- You should know how to pronounce the names of towns like Worcester, Billerica, Gloucester, and Haverhill.
-You should know how to pronounce Yastrzemski. 20. You order iced coffee in January
- You should know what they sell at a Packie.
-You should kbnow what First Night is.
-The words ‘WICKED’ and ‘GOOD’ go together.
-You should own a “Yankees Suck” shirt or Hat.
-You should know what a frappe is.
-You should be able to complete the Following: “Lynn, Lynn…”
-You should know how to merge from 6 lanes of traffic to 1.
-You should know that Johnny Damon and Roger Clemens are more evil than Whitey Buldger.
-You are expected to know who Whitey Buldger is.

When using wicked make sure it actually makes sense if your from out of town. If you force it to try and fit in you will be called out on it and corrected on it.

Add the Children's Museum and the Sports Museum to the list. If you're into history, JFK's birthplace and the Kennedy Library are good places to check out.

If your up to a trip about 20 miles outside of Boston, Patriots Place and the Patriots Hall of Fame is excellent.
