It seems to make sense in theory. One thing I am catching onto here in
Vermont (took me seven years to figure it out) is that while there are
ardent Sox/Celts/Pats fans here, not all things-Boston translate here
with equal vigor. That seems to be particularly true in the Champlain
Valley which shares the lake with New York State. Is it the accent? ;-)
Likewise, I wouldn't expect Mike & the Mad Dog (WFAN) to fly here that
well, a decidedly NYC product (also heard on WROW 590 Albany, a rim-shot
to parts of the area).
Vermonters have become accustomed to national talk with very few
exceptions. I'm not so sure that a southern New England point of view
(inside 128) would leave for much syrup after the sap's done boiling.
