3.
A town which was important during the american revolution, but since has done not much except do poorly in sports, especially football and basketball. Most people from there aspire to be good athletes, like people from Mahopac. Yorktown does nothing but trash-talk about its sports programs, but does not back it up, nor do they produce during the sports games.
John:"Dude, that kids from Yorktown!"

Paul:"Yeah he thinks hes good at basketball but he has less hops than a Nagasaki-an boy after World War two..."
