Recently I've made it a personal goal to get better at United States geography and state facts.
In elementary school I had to design a parade-like-float showcasing the state of Colorado. A few rocky mountains, a picture of John Elway, and a huge print out of their flag. Thanks to said project I'll never forget why Denver's called the Mile-High City or that the state bird is the lark bunting (Not Todd Helton bunting).
This week I'm including all of you in my findings of Virginia, the Old Dominion State, since none of you know where Virginia is either you fuckers.
First we'll look at the state flag. Check out the nip-slip, very liberal. This is the kind of flag that would fly over my country. It looks like an ancient Eric Karros stepping on an even more ancient Luis Gonzalez in those old purple Diamondbacks jerseys. And yes, the rumors are true. There is a West Virginia, but their flag sucks balls.
Virginia is sandwhiched imbetween D.C. and North Carolina and has it's own coastal area. More importantly though, it's an 8 hour drive from Virginia to New York City, NY where you can actually do things. At 7.76 million people, Virginia gave us bands like GWAR, Lamb of God, and Dave Matthews Band and celebrities like Batista, Sandra Bullock, and Debbie Matenopoulos.
The state bird, largest city, and all that other boring stuff is easy to find so instead of discussing that I present to you a .43 second clip of Miss Virginia 2009:
Now you know enough about Virginia. Next week: Kentucky.
