You know you're from Maryland if...

- "Going to The Yard" doesn't mean walking out your back door.

- you know it's pronounced "Ball - mer" or "Baw - di - more" not "Bal - ti - more".

- it's perfectly normal to use Old Bay or Wye River in every meal.

- you scream "OH" as loud as you can during the last line of the Star Spangled Banner.

- you can properly pick a crab. I said properly...

- "Cal" only refers to one person.
and you still remember this day...
- you know Washington D.C. is not our capital. And neither is Baltimore.

- you laugh at people from out of state who think bridges are scary.

- "______ County", or, "the shore" are legit explanations for where you live.

- it's pronounced "Shittsburgh"and you refuse to say the other.

- fries are bland without Old Bay and vinegar.

- you cringe every time someone talks about the Colts.

- "Ozzie" is not a member of Black Sabbath.

- you continue to root for the Orioles....even though we don't have the best track record.

- you still have a few Scopes keychains hanging around. 

from here

- you know what Rofo is.

- there's only one "Art".

- you can tell me where "Crabcakes and football - that's what Maryland does." comes from.

- you can pronounce "Haloti Ngata" correctly and know who he is.

- Boh knows best.

  2. My bf is from Maryland and the first thing we HAD to get when we moved in together, even before buying dishes and silverware, was a tin can of Old Bay. And you're right he put that sh*t on everything lol.

  3. I definitely didn't know any of it. Maybe I should do one about you know you're from Georgia wen? or you know you're a southern by?

  4. I have zero clue about Maryland, but you gave me a better clue! Haha. I should do a post like this about Chicago...I could definitely relate to the Orioles fact...oh the Cubs...they suck so bad yet I'm still a fan haha. Why oh why?
