Ok, I've got to get this to 75 words to be able to post it and add the poll below, but when the heck did you young 'uns start talking funny with "yinz?"
Yeah, I left the "coal country" east of P'burgh back in the days when going to a game meant driving in past the big, black, smoke-belching, dirty steel plants that y'all (I've adopted some southerisms from the folks I've hung out w/in the last 20 years) have seen in history books, but the proper western PA pronouns were "us'uns," "them 'uns," (e.g., "the score is us 'uns 5, them 'uns 3) and "you'ns." So let's red 'up your language and get back to "you'uns." Not that its really important, but we've got 10 more days to fill before the season starts.....
