My roommates know that if I ever find non-Heinz ketchup in our fridge it will literally be thrown away with no questions asked.
Nearly my entire wardrobe consists of either Steelers, Pens, or Pirates t-shirts/jerseys or Virginia Tech gear. I pretty much live by the sports t-shirt and shorts look.
If I get a burger/sandwich with fries I put the fries on it.
I don't have the accent and rarely say yinz but I will say things like jagger-bush, gumband, slippy, leave out "to be," and as I already said pop.
May sound stupid but I drink Rolling Rock a lot because my dad got it a lot back home before it was a national brand and it reminds me of home.
I say "jagger bush" and "jagoff." I think jagoff is a fabulous word. I never said "slippy" or "gumband" ever, even back home, although my grandma said "slippy."
A good bit of the U.S. says "pop." All of my friends from Canada and Chicago (and elsewhere in the Midwest) all say "pop."
STOP THE EAST-COAST BIAS AGAINST "POP"!!!
