One of my co-workers here in the WPIX engineering dept is a lady who comes from LI, and I can assure you that she most certainly pronounces it as Lon-GUYland. Marisa Tomei herself could not mutilate the words any more horribly.

That's really about the only pet peeve I have about living here in the city.
I am not from Long Island, I lived in Pennsylvania all my life until 2 years ago when I moved to the island, no Long Island/New York accent for me.

No, it is not a myth. I live on the island and Perez lives in the city, I hear it all the time. You should hear how they say ***** "meatbwalllz" instead of meatball.

That is the problem Chris. You are unaware of your own accent. Nobody is until people with other obnoxious accents make fun of you.

Haha, so very true. When I lived in SoCal, we had a sort of informal drinking club which we called The Bar Association at the apartment complex where I lived. Our membership was extremely diverse, and the accents ranged from coastal surfer dude to upstate NY to Leeds UK to southeastern US. It was almost hilarious how every single person in the group was convinced that every other person had a strange accent.

In for Vine of you saying "meatbwallz" the correct way.

Also: why does L.I. get periods but NY does not? And don't use the state abbreviation excuse because you didn't include a comma.

Maybe it's because I'm a soft-hearted Cubs fan, but I wouldn't wish Giants fandom on my worst enemy this season.

But I can't say I'm unhappy the Giants are doing so poorly, as Eli Manning is by far the most comedic loser in all of sports.

I want to feel bad for him but I can't stop laughing.

I really don't give a **** how much the team sucks, I just want people to watch them sucking on PIX11. This is the first year we've gotten to carry three NFL games in a season, and believe me, the money is gooooooooooooood.
