Boston Named Meanest City In America

Boston, you are one mean group of people. That's the word from a survey conducted by two psychologists from the University of Michigan, which determined that Boston was the meanest city in America. Mayor Tom Menino isn't buying it.

"I think look at here today, everybody's friendly here," said Mayor Tom Menino. "I go to all the events in the city of Boston. People say gee what a friendly city. Ask the cab drivers. They think we have a friendly city also. I don't know who did this poll. I never heard of it. It's one of those polls that some people I don't think there's any credibility in it at all." (via FOX 25)

Just because everyone else is jealous that we've won seven championship titles (nine if you include college hockey - thanks Boston College and Boston University) in ten years, it doesn't make us mean. So back off, alright?
