You think they have houses out there like we do in Boston or Martha’s Vineyard or the Berkshires? Spoiler alert: they don’t. Be prepared. Cookie-cutter suburbs will seem like a total snooze-fest.

It doesn’t matter if someone says you’re doing a “really great job” or they think you’re “a really awesome person.” Unless you’re doing a WICKED great job and you’re a WICKED awesome person, it’s all meaningless.

When they were suffering through the Curse, you loved ‘em. When they were champions, you loved ‘em. And you loved the Red Sox everywhere in between. How lucky you’ve been to have a team to teach you true loyalty.

Sure, shoveling the five feet of snow off the top of your car every morning sucks, but it sure is pretty and fun sometimes.

Who are we kidding? You’re spoiled ALMOST year-round with amazing seasons.

You know it’s not supposed to be a compliment, but if you live in Massachusetts long enough you’ll start to take pride in it. It’s pretty twisted if you think about it.

Bay Staters know how to bang a left with the best of them, and anyone who thinks turn signals are a necessity (or anyone who doesn’t get a bit… crazy on the road, from time to time) clearly just doesn’t know how to drive.

20. They’ll Always Be Jimmies

Because no other ice cream will ever compare to Brigham’s.

    You guys forgot about the fact that we are spoiled with some of the best roast beef joints around. A roast beef 3-way is unknown to the rest of the world, it has people looking at you like your crazy when you ask for it

  4. Lisa

    You got #21 wrong. It’s Friendly’s Ice Cream not Brighams. Other than that you are 100% Correct. We live in Paradise.

  5. meg

    THis mainly applies to eastern Mass…there’s more to the state…just sayin’ :)
    I grew up in western Mass and we pronounce “R”and we don’t have an accent. We also say sprinkles, not jimmies. I’ve never been to the Cape or a cranberry bog and I don’t know what Brigham’s is.

  9. Judy

    Best cannolis at Mike’s Pastres.
    Everyone is Irish on St Patrick’s Day
    What other state celebrates Patriots Day like we do?
    We got lo lobstah!
    We got Tanglewood!
    We got the Basketball Hall of Fame!
