I'm not a WVU fan, but it is pretty irritating living in the state when people make these kinds of references, especially on national television. It makes me wonder why these people refer to West Virginians as uneducated hillbillies when they don't even know West Virginia is an actual state.
My wife used to work with people that went to "Virginia" for the weekend. You know, to the Mountaineer
Casino in Wheeling.
I lived in West Virginia for the first 22 years of my life and used to get worked up about it when people didn't know we were a state. Now I just chalk it up as being a reflection of their poor knowledge of their own country and move on.
