  And of course people in Boston have no idea what a Yankee is!

I also learned while I lived in Miami, that in Florida "The further south
you go, the further North you get."

And, sir, as a Boston resident, I assure you, we know darn well what a
Yankee is.  It is a terrible baseball player from NYC.
