    O.k....  I'll put it simply-  Storrs and NCentral Ct is what Bostonians view to be NYC, IF NYC wasn't Wrong.  Educated, Cultured, Really high-paced...just not pathological.  IF New York City existed in some reality wherein NYC was fixed...it'd be NCentral CT.

    =Boston based. 



    what town you from Laz?

    Somers.

    Enfield-Somers-Stafford

           Ellington-Vernon/Rockville

     

    I currently live in Rockville...  I love how people say Rockville is a "bad town."  I only feel safe when there's a 50% white 50% minority mix...  80% Caucasian I start feeling that I'm going to be arrested...or blamed for something <and I've been told I'M white- not often...but my parents are, I guess>.  White people scare me...that's what happens when you grow up in Somers.  I don't what else to say-  I forget the original topic of discussion...I feel repressed, shamed...some white person might call the cops on me.  I might be saved, or just d#mned.  I'm fallen, saved.



    Sweet man, grew up in Enfield. that whole area too

    no, not including UConn. 

    Boston is the heart of this thing, and that's in Massachusetts. 

    In case you were not aware UMass and UConn once had a pretty bitter rivarly. I wouldn't suddenly switch sides just because UMass didn't handle their basketball program right.

    There are a ton of Yankee and Giants fans in Conn, the closer you get to New York City the more they are identiable as New Yorkers (and proudly so, commuting to NYC etc). I meet far more Yanks/Giants fans from Connecticut than I do Pats/Sox/Bruins. 

    Conn is also considered part of the tri-state area (along with NY and NJ). In fact on this Wikipedia page: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tri-State_area_%28NY-NJ-CT%29 

    All but one of the most populous cities in the entire state of CT is considered part of the New York metropolitan area. 

    That's NOT New England. 

    I don't want credit for the championships won by world class jabros Calhoun and Geno - though I'll grant you that they are hall of fame coaches. Just not my kinda guys. I'd pay to see them in a Fight Club style match though. 

    If CT fans want to root for New England teams and consider themselves part of New England, I'm good with that. But i don't consider those CT championships part of what I as a Mass resident would root for. Most Mass residents will tell you the same - as much as i respect their dominant accomplishments.

    they are in connecticuit



    I was born, raised, reared, went to high school, and college in NCentral Connecticut...  I have NEVER even remotely believed that Storrs and my original town (20 minutes outside Storrs and 1 which borders the Mass line) were something other than Boston-based towns and Teams.  I consider that to be the "heart of NE" Upper Boston West and slightly north than straight on down to Springfield down and over the NCentral CT towns above Hartford...  THAT to me, Is New England.  I construe aspects of Southern Vermont above even Providence or New Hampshire.  ...But to me, and how I was bred...It was never, EVER- CT based...you'd be ostracized as being a Hartford and below "Tory" IF you said NY york based...  Wasn't NY State based nor even New Hampshire nor Maine based (o.k. maybe the southernmost town of main and 1/2 mile of NH).  North Central CT IS "Bostonian" through and through. 

    O.k....  I'll put it simply-  Storrs and NCentral Ct is what Bostonians view to be NYC, IF NYC wasn't Wrong.  Educated, Cultured, Really high-paced...just not pathological.  IF New York City existed in some reality wherein NYC was fixed...it'd be NCentral CT.

    =Boston based. 




    no actually NY CT NJ known for century plus as the Tri-State area-which as you see has no part of MA in the equation so factually not only does NY have more of a claim than MA but can also rightly claim 1/3 of the championship



    CT is a mixed bag as far as NY/NE goes.

     I worked in CT for years, in various places all the way from New Milford to Manchester. There are lots of Pats fans there. A bunch got all miffed when Kraft pulled the rug out on the stadium plan and went Giants. (As if CT could support an NFL team. LMAO)

    The only part of CT that's in the tri-state area is Fairfield County.  That's New York.  The rest of Connecticut is in New England.

    Always thought of Conn as a bedroom community of NYC obviously it is split down the middle somewhere as far as sports allegiences.

    NH & RI are mostly Boston oriented , as is Maine. Vermont is split between Boston and NY (all 600,00 people)

    But who do the Vermont cows root for? They greatly outnumber the humans so they have to be considered

    Ct is part of New England. Ny only can claim Greenwich.  I grew up in oldsaybrook went to school at Vinal tech. Everyone I knew were sox, bruins, celts and pats fans. The skankees had some draw but the Red Sox ruled the area. Celts didnt care about the Knicks, it was the lakers that mattered back then.  You had your band wagon fans but their probably pats fans now anyway.

    No way. We can claim BC and BU's 4 hockey titles since 2008 (of course I have to mention that 3 belong to the far supeior school!) but nothing that is outside of Massachusetts is eligible. The only good thing to come out of UConn is Ray Allen. F UConn!
