RedEagle, hold on a quick second!!
I have spent my whole life up in Boston, except for that 4 year "self-imposed exile" in "lovely South Orange,NJ" (I use the word lovely as sarcastically as possible!!).
With the exception of Ferry Street/Ironbound section, the Tri-State area has nothing on Boston. You can take the carjackings, the stench from Staten Island, the dirty subways, the Yanks, Mets, Devils, Rangers, and MetroStars. Hell, who would want to take the MetroStars, anyway???
I'll take clean streets, clean air, Fenway, Harpoon and Sam Addams Beer, Bobby Orr, Larry Bird, no "R's" in anyones vocabulary, and just to close this once and for all...
In the old NASL, New York had Pele, but WE HAD EUSEBIO!!!!
Now, let's get back to talking soccer!!
