From RI, but have lived in Boston most of my adult life and I never knew Candle pin was native to Boston or Mass...Nor did I have any clue what we call our "old money" elite...I got candle pin though....I mean other than Menino, Hanock tower (I work in this building), the airport I think the rest are pretty gettable...But I live here so maybe not.

You should also be able to accept duck pin if you accept candle pin. They are very similar. And in the same region.

Duckpin is different than candlepin. Duckpin is in Rhode Island. Fatter bottoms than candlepin.

You shouldn't have caved! Duckpin just isn't a thing in Boston. Down near the Cape, yes – but not in Boston.

A pro team pretty much covers the whole state. Harvard is the heart of Cambridge. Located right there in Harvard Square. When I think of "Boston" schools, I think of Boston U or Boston College. It isn't that much of a stretch, but I just don't think it is "associated with the city of Boston." My thoughts, take 'em or leave 'em. No biggie.

By that logic, university like this "covers" much more than a state.

As I heard when I toured BU, Boston College isn't a college (it's a university) and it's not in Boston (it's in Chestnut Hill, which is next to Newton), so why would you want to go someplace that doesn't know where it is or what it is?

Since there are no other Ivy League schools in the state, what else could it possibly be? University of Pennsylvania?

@communisteggplant People like to say that about BC, but part of it is in fact in Boston. Chestnut Hill is village that is in Brookline, Boston, and Newton. Part of BC is in the Boston part of Chestnut Hill.

Harvard is also in Allston, which is in Boston - the business school, the football stadium, various buildings and halls. The Medical school is in the Longwood area of Boston.

Dude, come on. You *know* Harvard is considered a "Boston" school, and besides – it's the only Ivy League college in Massachusetts, so that pretty much should have sealed the deal.
