Buffalo might have something aboot the Bills, they love their NFL team. What aboot the falls?

They may have something for the Bills in the video but I'm not sure they saying will be about them. The falls is pointless because it's not in Buffalo. It's in another city/country 30 minutes north of us. Only part of Niagara falls is in the US. The majority of it and the better part of it, is on the Canadian side.
Good points, I don't remeber the falls being that far away, then again it was August 31st 1997.

Well, it's 20-30 mins depending on how far away you are, traffic, where exactly in the falls you're heading, if you're crossing the border or not.

The list so far:

Tulsa: A Great Place For Drag, symbol: Golden Driller
Lincoln: Home of the Real Red Sea, symbol: car on top of a car - salvage yard?
Twin Cities: Two Is Better Than One, symbol: giant snowman
St. Louis: Go Cards Go, symbol: school bus about to drive off a building
Austin:  Keeping It Weird, symbol: water tower
Dallas: Our Cheerleaders Are Better!, symbol: Big Tex
Houston: The Capital of Air Conditioning, symbol: rocket launch
New Orleans: Jambalaya Anyone?, symbol: frosty root beer
Tampa: Love It Or Leave It, symbol: soft serve ice cream cone


I'm thinking the soft serve ice cream cone is because of this:  http://moon.com/2014...s-in-tampa-bay/

My sister that lives there is supposed to let me know for certain tomorrow!  Not sure what Love It or Leave It is , though.

Husband says it is an Atlanta Falcons (NFL football) team pennant ??  It's a little hard to see.  Thought maybe it would be a Braves one with Ged's interest in baseball but their pennant looks nothing like the picture . . .

The car sculpture for Lincoln is "carhenge", which is a Stonehenge-like sculpture somebody did in rural Nebraska using old cars. Yes, I have seen it.

They may want to check their geography though, as this is located near Alliance, which is several hundred miles away on the other side of the state.

Thank you!  I have been wondering about that one- both about what it represented and why that would be special??!!  The Carhenge thing seems cool!!  Gotta love the arts!!

I have been wondering the same thing about Alex!  We lived in Salt Lake City for a short time about 20 yrs ago.  The joke then was that everyone made green jello- they could put a big bowl of that in the intro video - although there is so much  actual beautiful scenery around!

Yeah we had a green jello pin during the 2002 Olympics that sold real well. :laughing guy:   I made the joke about Zion (from a Rush song of course) and because Neil loves to travel through our state on his bike with all the parks in the southern part of the state.  I am just so excited they are coming here, July seems so far away! :dweez: :yay:

I guess it's passable since Lincoln was the only Nebraska show.

I was going to say it looks like an angry bird like from that game other people play.

Edit: yup that is it the Big Chicken.

What was the symbol/landmark? Do you remember? Haven't seen a video of the intro from Greensbro yet.
