Your town

I grew up in 2 small towns in PA. I was raised in the town Tyrone but spent alot of time in the town of Altoona. I currently attend school in Tyrone, personally I HATE that town. All my life I was bullied by the white trash residents. Being called names like "fag" "queer" and "blonde" has made me loath that town. Altoona on the other hand is slightly better but not by much.

What do you think of the town you grew up in?

    I live in a town called Grimsby (or Great Grimsby) on the east coast of the UK and although the town is really a complete shit hole, I love it and am very proud of it! We have a diabolical football team that were only ever any good in the 1930's but for some reason I still seem to go to see them lose every week!

    The population is about 90,000 people and our only real claim to fame is that we used to be quite a famous fish port and we played a part in the 'Cod Wars' of the 1950's and 1970's.

    Although it isn't great, it's my hometown and I love it, You should come down and see the town one day! haha :D Below is a picture of the towns most famous landmark 'the dock tower' which actually spared the town a lot of bombing in WW2 as the Germans used it for navigational purposes.

    There was COD back in the 50's and 70's ???

    I'm sure when I drive down the A180 it says "Great Grimsby" on the sign!
    Also you have one of the best Footy chants!

    I live in South Bend, Indiana. Home of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. U Jelly? Haha. I love it here. Though, I miss my home town of White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. It's a small town of less than 2k population and it's got beautiful mountains.

    "It's a small town of less than 2k population" - isn't that classed as a village then?

    I liked it and still do, just not nearly as much after I stayed in a beachfront apartment for 4 days elsewhere.

    My hometown is pretty shit entertainment wise. The only reason I love it is for my football team, who yes, have today been relegated, but I love them anyway..

    The football team I support got relegated. What hurts is that there was a little bit of hope left that we might have got out, and it didn't happen..

    - SuDoku April 26, 2011, 12:48 pm
    Preston and Scunny, we'll own 'em all and take the automatic promotion spots for our own! :D

    I really hope Peterborough don't go up this season, I really want to see the 'welcome' Fergie gets when he show's his ugly mugg back in Deepdale!

    I like the town I live in it has my computer in it and everyone either minds their own business or stops to say I love your hat. The one Ember has to stay in with her dad during brakes sucks, people there are really mean to Ember.

    - DarkHunter April 26, 2011, 2:54 pm

    I live in Glasgow, Scotland.
    Great place. Very friendly people, some nice architecture, lots of parks, good variety of places to eat and drink.
    Pisses on Edinburgh from a great height. One of the most unfriendly places I've ever been.
    Lived in London for a year. Absolutely hated it. Don't even like passing through the place now.

    Listen up kids, it's not what you think,
    Stayed out too late, had a little too much to drink
    Walked home 'cross the bridge, when the Marquee shut down
    There's a reason why I love this town. (Halifax, Nova Scotia anyone who listens to Joel Plaskett will get this)
