I know, I remember once I went to Hilton Head, ran into this family form Cinci, and right when I opened my mouth to talk to someone from my family, they said, "You're from Pittsburgh aren't you?" and then, "Are you a Steeler fan?" "How's that one quarterback?"

Heck yes, and a lot better than yours, apparently.

I went to the base library here at Davis Monthan and I started talking with the woman at the front desk. After about 5 minutes, she ****s her head to the side and says, "Cambria or Somerset County?" I was a little shocked and said Somerset. She said she was from Altoona and can usually pick out a Wetsern Pennsylvania from a mile away.

I've been told we walk differently too.

Yeah. Not hard to guess how you knew that! I live in Cincinnati now. It's amazing such a German town and the vast majority have never heard of that New Years tradition! Everybody back home does...doesn't matter if you're Italian, Polish, whatever. I've GOT to make a trip back home!

I've lived away for a long time and have pretty much lost my accent. Funny though, my hubby knows immediatley when I"ve been talking to my family...he'll just walk in the door, I'll say hello and he"ll say, "you've been talkin to your sister, haven't ya"?

Ok then how about pierogies and stuffed cabbage. People here have never heard of pierogies unless they happen to come across Mrs T's at the grocery! And they think that "pigs in a blanket" are hot dogs rolled in dough!

Yes I am. Born and raised. But the majority of Pittsburgh is either Italian or Polish. I happen to be full-blooded Italian. Hence, the Italian meal. Not everybody in Pittsburgh eats kraut and pork. At one point in time, Pittsburgh was third in the country with the most Italian-Americans (after NYC and Chicago).
