Note the poster Billy Jones' 9:33 p.m. comment.


There is something seriously wrong with him...


Just check out the GSO Triumph Center thread on U.P. for confirmation. :roll:



That was entertaining...he's always good for a few laughs. :)

So I guess this means that the chatter regarding whose city is better is not exclusive to Camel City & that place East of Colfax?? And does this passage seem familiar?

"The point is that every city—just like everybody—has someplace it looks at with envy, reasonable or not. But from what I can tell, I don’t see anybody in Raleigh paying much attention to Charlotte as a rival. As for Charlotte, though occasionally one of its newspaper columnists drops his trousers in the hope that somehow he will embarrass Raleigh (some Charlotte columnist, twitching with fury, expressed such scorn about the Carolina Hurricanes’ 2006 Stanley Cup that Raleighites considered sending bran muffins), in my experience Charlotte doesn’t spend much time worrying about Raleigh, unless the legislature tries to take over the airport."
