I myself am from Chicago, and I just want to tell you to stop trying to represent Chicago. Those deep-dish, Chicago hot dog, Cubs and Bears loving purists are the worst. And no I'm not saying deep-dish or Chicago hot dogs are bad, I love them as well, but don't have dumb arguments defending deep-dish just because you're from Chicago.

Do you also talk in similar patterns to Patrick and Obama? I notice they pause in the weirdest spots mid sentence. Christopher Walken style.

I thought Chicago was only full of patrick clones. At least this clears that up for me.

As a Californian, please stop seeing the GB crew as being representations of the average Californian. People from Northern California are the worst.

As a Petaluma resident, Real Doner was not as good as Dave said. Afendi's was much better, but they've sadly went out of business.

And the way he takes pride in the murder rate is the worst

As a Californian I also agree those damn hippies from the north are the worst. Then again the southern part isn't any better. Central California ODELAY

Yeah, this seems like a thread that needed making. Thanks, Jake Gyllenhaal.

I am not from Chicago, still in the upper midwest and I really don't hate on Patrick for any of it. I dunno, he is fine most of the time. The Bears comment in the last podcast about everyone who beat the bears lost or something, but whatevs.

Let me preface my statement by saying that I've driven through Chicago twice.

Now shut the fuck up.

As someone who has lived in both San Francisco and Chicago I think almost everything in this thread so far is kind of dumb.

As a member of the Northern Hemisphere stop trying to represent us, those Western Northern Hemisphere people are the worst.

"I myself am from Chicago, and I just want to tell you to stop trying to represent Chicago."

I also am from Chicago, and you're acting like a spoil-sport. Stop it.

Dawg, it's fun to love Chicago. And hot dogs are way better Chicago-style then with ketchup. Of course, ketchup is just the worst on everything. (So overpowering with so little reward, and on the handful of occasions it's valuable, barbecue sauce is always better!)

Also, he's not a purist on deep dish pizza, he just knows that Domino's in San Fran isn't gonna deliver you an actual deep dish pizza, it's gonna deliver you something with a stuffed crust and not four inches of tomatoes and nonsense. They don't even have an Uno's out there anymore (if my Googling checks out) to get proper deep dish. And I mean "proper" in the sense that "it's actually deep dish," not in the sense that "the only proper way to eat pizza is deep dish."

As for loving the Bears/Cubs, he likes sports. Is that really so wrong?

As someone who has lived in both cities, I can tell you that one of my favorite deep dish pizza places is Little Star on Divisadero in SF. I haven't been to the Mission location, where Patrick lives, so I don't know about the quality of that one. It's proper deep dish and better than anything I've had at Giordano's, Lou Malnatti's, etc. Uno's? I haven't been to either the original or Duo location downtown, but Uno's in the rest of the country is basically doughy pizza hut. It's not good at all.

I put some ketchup on ice cream as a kid once. It was... interesting? Yes interesting.

He is a guy who is probably home sick for home after the passing of his father. My wife is from New Zealand and loves everything New Zealand now that she lives in Chicago instead of Christchurch.

If anything make fun of him for being a north side lameo, that isn't the real Chicago. :P

#25 Posted by Abendlaender (2768 posts) -

As a european I can safley say that, yes, we are indeed as awesome as Vinny, Drew and Dave.

#26 Posted by Little_Socrates (5675 posts) -

@louiedog: Glad there's somewhere decent to get deep dish in Northern California. I've never lived out there. And, yeah, Uno's is generally kind of the lowest bar.

@Demoskinos: @Animasta: Nope, that remains BBQ sauce, far as I'm concerned. Though probably not on a hot dog. 'course, ketchup is too overpowering for hot dogs, you wouldn't taste anything but the ketchup and maybe the other condiments. Same is true for BBQ.

I should write a blog on disliking OoT and ketchup. That'd make me popular, right?

#27 Posted by TooWalrus (13139 posts) -

@Vinchenzo: lol, I remember you. You were on some hardcore anti-alcohol tirade, belittling anyone who liked to drink, acting all holier-than-thou, saying anyone who drinks is an idiot etc, and one day I guess you 'discovered' alcohol, because you changed your profile wallpaper to a picture of you with a 40oz.

At least, that's what happened in my head.

I completely disagree with you about ketchup and yet completely agree about BBQ sauce. Which is the best and only sauce.

#31 Posted by BrockNRolla (1702 posts) -

I too am from Chicago.

There are two types of "city" or "regional" people I'm not a fan of.

First is the "Hey, I'm from (insert place here). The (insert food here) is better than anywhere else. The (insert sports team here) destroy all other teams. Where you live sucks. (Insert some kind of city/regional chant here)." It's a weird sort of elitist douche-baggery when you can't possibly know whether or not your regional things are actually superior, but claim it nonetheless.

The other type of person I'm not a fan of is the "Hey, I'm from (insert place here). I hate it when people talk about us like they know us. Real (insert sports team here) fans don't act like that. (Insert regional food here) isn't that good; (insert more obscure local eatery here) is way better. Get out of my town and stop acting like you know it. You're giving us a bad name." It's a weird sort of elitist douche-baggery where you act as though you're superior to people who share your region, like you know better than them how a person should or should not act.

Sounds like you're being the latter. I'm not sure I've experienced Patrick being either.

#34 Posted by laserbolts (5314 posts) -

Do everyone from Chicago say scenario wrong and as often as Patrick does? If so I never want to go there. Good hockey team though.

#35 Edited by ShaggE (6348 posts) -

As an East Coaster, I just want to say that we don't all act as correspondents for West Coast websites, and I resent the implication that we all used to work at Harmonix, DAVE.

Furthermore, as a guy who once passed through Chicago on a bus to Wisconsin, I can say with authority that everybody there is indeed Patrick. Literally. There's only one person in the entire city, and it's Patrick. Which is weird, because he couldn't have been older than 11 or 12 when I passed through. Where were his parents? A child shouldn't have free run of a major city, even if he IS the only one there. Shit's messed up.

Edit: AND ANOTHER THING! As a guy who saw the movie "Cool Runnings", not all Jamaicans bobsled, and not all Canadians are overweight!

Oh, I'm just jealous - Vinchenzo is so brave, controversial and opinionated. And he's been at a strip club, so on top of all that, he's also a real man.

It's weird to me that Patrick seems to love everything about Chicago but the Blackhawks.

Seriously. If there's any sports franchise you can respect, it's the fucking Blackhawks.

#41 Posted by chocolaterhinovampire (1288 posts) -

Just let Patrick be prideful of his home town. What could possibly be wrong with that? Has his love of Chicago somehow besmirched you?

Oh yeah? Well I'm from Chicago, and anyone who is a baseball fan can fuck right off. I hate getting on the Red Line during baseball games. You're fucking with my commute!

Also, this is America. Football is our sport. So instead, Bears fans can fuck right off, because I'm a Packer fan.

This is a weird town.

I agree with you, but really the only way to eat a hot dug is mustard and onions.
