    Ahem...

    • NASCAR originated here in Daytona Beach, Florida.
    • Lynyrd Skynrd, 'nuff said.
    • We invented one of the most fun and interesting instruments, the banjo.
    • We have fiercer college football rivalries (i.e. Alabama-Auburn, Georgia-Florida.).
    I'll add more when I have time. :)

    The south wins by virtue of the ridiculous weather and cost of living up north. Plus, the south have pigs-in-a-blanket.

    I wouldn't count NASCAR as an asset, though...

    Really? Really? After all this time, and we're still not pass this North/South crap.

    Ugh, I'm moving to Amsterdam.

    This list.... did you make a typo? Because this list sounds to me like reasons why the North is better than the South.

    The first two, simply things to feel ashamed, not proud. The banjo?, what the guitar was too complicated? The fourth, the South has fiercer college football rivalries because there aren't any professional football teams worth anything.

    I'm a lifelong Southerner. My wife is a New Englander. (So naturally we moved to China.)

    While I agree that I love the South with all my heart, I have to say, the North has some damn fine looking women, and there's nothing quite like OUR war between the states, if you know what I mean.

    Most people outside the of the SEC region don't care for SEC rivlaries. College football rivalries are essentially a regional thing.

    Plus, as someone already stated...it's because of a lack of professional sports teams. I lived in Mississippi for a few years in the early part of the '00s and there was ONE professional team within about a 6-8 hour drive. Here in the Midwest, I can reach well over a dozen professional teams within a five-hour drive along with dozens of minor-league teams and colleges.

    You forgot to mention that NASCAR originated from a group of drivers who used to illegally transport moonshine whiskey during Prohibition.

    :inquisiti  Huh? Did you really list NASCAR as a positive thing? Really?

    I think you named just about every cliche in the book. And as a Southern guy myself, that list scares me.

    I like in Auburn and I can tell you that:

    * NASCAR sucks
    * Sweet Home Alabama is one of the most (if not THE most) annoying songs ever produced
    * The banjo? Seriously? The south should have NO say in music (see above).
    * Our college rivalries are no better than non-SEC games. It's the SEC fans that set us apart. And not in a good way.

    I will say something the south has...

    1) More fossils due to lack of glaciation,
    2) Warmer climates
    3) More common poisonous animals.
    4) Paula Dean

    The North has:

    1)Glacial Erratics and a good porion of what once was Africa.
    2)Defined seasons. (all be it, Summer, Mud, Winter, More Winter and Mud)
    3)Less poison, more scary giant animals.
    4)Bobby Flay.



    Why is it that we still care about N vs. S? It matters little imho, other than in politics and religion outside of a natural history course.

    • Driving cars built in Michigan. I'll grant you that your tracks are better than Watkins Glen and New Hampshire. (Though having been to Daytona, I would like to point out that the area around the tracks here are actually prepared for the race. It always looks like the cops in Volusia have no idea there was going to be so much traffic.)
      Aerosmith, Boston, Kiss, Moby...um, scratch the last one.
      Sousaphone. Enjoy your banjo parades.
      We follow pro sports and college sports where there's no arguing over who should be champion. It's all decided on the field/court/ice.

    Clearly you didn't go outside this weekend. Plus given less humidity in the summer and much less hurricanes, I'll take a little snow. Snow isn't going to knock my house over or flood a city. You're right about cost of living, but for fixed cost items (such as TFs or a PS3), we spend less time working on average to pay for the same thing.

    Geez, if only there was some sort of contest or conflict where we could determine the winner of this rivalry. Hmmm... I kid, I kid! I love to hear y'all say "Piggly Wiggly" with a straight face.

    Check the public school rankings for Louisiana, Mississippi, Georgia and Florida and get back to me.

    The south rules for college football, grits, and biscuits & gravy. Outside of that, I dunno...
