On the people running your city (not hipsters):
I hate to be the bearer of more bad news, but the mayor, police commissioner, and richest man in New York City are all either from, or spent a great majority of their time in the Boston area. Need a public works commissioner? My buddy Joe’s cousin coaches eighth grade football at Acton-Boxborough. I can get you his Facebook.
On attitude, in general:
New York's favorite pastime: talking about yourselves like you live in Taxi Driver, when in reality, you live in the middle episodes of Bored to Death.
Boston’s favorite pastime: talking about ourselves like we live in The Town, when in reality, we kind of… live in The Town!!!
On attitude, with celebrities:
Everyone in New York just thinks they’re big shits because Joy Behar lives there. You try and play the “oh, it’s cool -- we always run into Joy Behar outside the Bowery” type moves because you want us to know that celebrities like Joy Behar are always hanging out in your general vicinity and you remain unfazed.
Well, outside of Tom, Gisele, and the other professional athletes that are forced to live in Boston because of their jobs, we don’t have to pretend we don’t care. Because NO FAMOUS NON-ATHLETES LIKE JOY BEHAR LIVE IN BOSTON. And so there’s no feigned ambivalence here. If Mayor Marty Walsh’s Chief of Staff Dan Koh walks into 21st Amendment to get a Guinness, you’re goddamned right I’m going to Tweet about it. That’s a big day for me.
