Compare Charlotte to a little Atlanta.
We aren’t Atlanta’s kid brother and we don’t like being referred to as such. Atlanta and Charlotte are completely different. For instance, Atlanta has an insufferable amount of traffic and Charlotte has a slightly less insufferable amount of traffic.
Insult the sport we don’t pay all that much attention to.
A lot of Charlotteans have never made it to a NASCAR race and don’t really know much about it. We may have gone to the All Star Race a few times, but that was only for an excuse to day drink Budweiser in jean shorts. We do know however, that NASCAR is very important to us in the Queen City, so don’t bash it. After all, Charlotte is the home of the NASCAR Hall of Fame; which most of us have also never been to, but the tourists tell us it’s great.
