    I found I should be living in LA- lower bammer for how I talk- one of my profs in the RTV dept told me I needed to take a class on diction before I would ever make it on TV or radio- I still have a copy of the first football game I did live on the radio- I said fir instead of for-thoe instead of throw and generally sounded like a real hayseed-some would say I still do-:p:p:p

    my least similar is Mass

    You can take this Yankee out of the northeast, but not the northeast out of this Yankee...or something like that.

    Pegged me to a t... so to speak. Get it? :)

    I wound up with Denver, Columbus, GA and Augusta GA as my top three. My opposite three were Tacoma, Detroit and Pittsburgh.

    My mom worked as a telephone operator back in the 50's and to this day, 90% of the time she's talking with someone she just met, she can pinpoint what part of what state they're from.

    I can see I'll have to hide some of you people living in the South out and pass you off as Yankee POWs.

    I had the exact same three.

    I've spent most of my life in Jacksonville, although, I've been told by some that I sound like I'm from the North.
