Home to quite a few sports teams, such as the Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots, Boston Celtics, Boston Bruins, Worcester Ice Cats, and a bunch of other less important ones. The first perfect game of baseball was pitched in Worcester (my hometown). Also, Robert Cormier, and Esther Forbes, both famous authors are from Worcester. Massachusetts is home to one of the most famous orchestras in the world (Boston Pops), one of only five in the US which have starting salary's of $100,000. Also, MA is home to the only institution in the North East dedicated to the collection, preservation, exhibition, and interpretation of arms and armor. (Higgins Armory Museum-Worcester) Worcester also houses the nation's "finest pre-Civil War concert hall," Mechanics Hall. Massachusetts played a very important part in the development of the American nation, beginning with the Pilgrims. Also, there were the Salem Witch Trials, the Battles of Concord and Lexington, , the Boston Tea Party, and all those things you learn in American History class. Massachusetts is also the first state to allow gay marriages, much to the chagrin of many residents. There are gay festivals held in Boston Common every summer. I accidentally walked into one unknowingly... Also, Massachusetts is a great example of the renowned 'Crazy New England Weather.' Theres snow in the winter (a LOT), it gets WICKED HOT in the summer, there is beautiful foliage in the fall, and pretty blossoms in the spring. Terms from this region include WICKED, FRIGGIN, which can be used separately, or together (WICKED FRIGGIN), BUBBLER (water fountain), JIMMIES (sprinkles), UEY (u turn), Candlepin Bowling, COMMON (park in the middle of the city), and CELLAR (basement). Massachusetts has in it a bunch of important universities, such as Harvard, MIT, Wellesley, WPI, and Tufts. As well as like 12345 other colleges and universities...I mean theres more colleges in my city then there are in the whole state of Alaska, I'm not even kidding!
