    My vote's with Boston, but only because it's my hometown. If you go to Boston, don't drive around the city. Leave the car at the hotel. You can get in on the T from the burbs and the city is the most walkable you'll find. Driving is only for the natives.

    So it's possible to stay in the burbs and take public transportation? As naive as that may sound, you're talking to a guy who has lived in the South his entire life and public transportation isn't even a thought. Though i do love me some public transportation. That's part of the reason I like NY>

    When I went to Boston in college, we stayed in Cambridge, took a taxi to Harvard Square and jumped on the T there. Took us right into Boston. Fantabulous.

    Sometimes when I'm walking along the Charles River, I wonder what would happen if a biker hit the rail and plummeted into the icy depths.

    Two good choices. I'm more partial to NYC, but you can't go wrong either way. If you love visiting college campuses, then Boston might be the choice.

    But a free place to stay is hard to turn down.

    Is that a Steven Wright line? It sounds like him, being from Boston (Emerson?) and all.

    It's either my own, or I'm an unintentional plagiarist.

    My apologies. I heard Wright's voice reading that. It's quite the fatalistic line, Dye. :D

    If you do pick Boston, and you get really...REALLY bored. See how far you can walk without passing a Dunkin Donuts. I almost made it two and a half blocks.

    It is no longer possible to walk 2½ blocks in Manhattan without passing a Starbucks.

    Here's a way to determine it: Decide which is less obnoxious: bostonSportsJournalists.com or nySportsJournalists.com. Then go there.

    Christ....why not ask him to figure the square root of 1222000889898989898249894893849384?

    Go to Boston...........only because its a city you haven't seen before. And, its a good time.
