Throughout your life, you may travel near and far; up and down; left and right; over and under. However, I guarantee you will never meet anyone better than the residents of Pennsylvania. We are a great bunch. Here are 15 reasons that will have you shouting in agreement.
1. We know how to handle all kinds of situations.
Not only can we handle hellish blizzards, but we handle them with style and grace.
2. We're a resourceful bunch.
We really are self reliant and resourceful when we need be.
3. We'll make you the best food you've ever had.
See that? THOSE ARE PIEROGIES. If you haven't experienced them, GET TO OUR STATE.
4. Thanks to our location, we get the chance to meet many different people.
Look at that; we're close to New York City, Chicago, Boston, Washington, DC, and more. Pennsylvania is called the Keystone State for a reason. It is in a central location to the entire nation.
5. We can handle some friendly competition.
Considering that we have two big cities with many major league sports teams, Pennsylvania has a lot of sports rivalries that exist between Philadelphia and Pittsburgh.
6. We know how to handle change.
Pennsylvania experienced serious industrial change when the steel mills shut down. Though many Pennsylvania residents suffered the loss of their careers and even pensions, we have forged on.
7. We can appreciate the simpler things.
Pennsylvania has a lot of great things, but the best one is MOTHER NATURE. Just let us loose into your backyard or a vacant lot and we will find something to marvel over.
8. We enjoy all kinds of different activities.
Pennsylvanians have it all: fields and forests, museums and clubs. We'll have fun and fit in anywhere.
9. We're down-to-earth.
We love to bury our hands in the soil, and to bear the bounty of what we can grow there.
10. We know how to entertain ourselves.
Yes, Pennsylvania is a great place, but we have to admit that there are nights where there is NOWHERE TO GO TO HAVE FUN. Therefore, we know how to make fun happen on our own terms.
11. We have a rich history.
Pennsylvania history is nothing short of incredible. We're home not only to the first capital of the United States, but also the first library, turnpike, hospital, successful newspaper, and much more.
12. We're authentic.
Pennsylvania is not home to that much wishy-washy superficiality. What you see is, for the most part, what you get.
13. We're patient. (Sometimes.)
Well, just don't go to Philly, and this one might be true. (Just kidding, Philadelphia, I love you.)
14. We're generous.
Just try coming into my house without being force fed at least 4 plates of food and 15 shoo fly pies. Nope, not going to happen.
15. We love our critters.
Sometimes it feels like you can't drive more than 15 minutes in Pennsylvania without coming across a moo or a neigh. We're not complaining, though.
