Hoo Hoo Hoosiers, let's go!
Indiana! What a great state. Many know that Indiana is one of the fifty states that make up the United States of America. Nestled in the Midwestern United States. This great state (of a population of around 6.67 million) is truly unique in its customs, lingo, slang, dialect, favorite foods, favorite weekend traditions, sports team loyalties, and general way of life. In way of population, Indiana is the 17th most populous U.S. state. But in terms of land mass, it is only the 38th largest state. It became the 19th state when it joined the United States of America on December 11th, 1816. In the 203 years since that admission to the country, Indiana has gone on to contribute a lot great things to the country. Like Larry Bird, David Letterman, James Dean, and Phil Harris, just to name a few. Indiana is known for so much more than just that handful of celebrities, however. Indiana is know for being Hoo Hoo Hoosiers. For proudly sporting the color red, for housing great universities like the University of Indiana and the University of Notre Dame, and for handling all matters of extreme weather from hot summers to cold winters, and the potholes that come in between. And certainly not to be forgotten, Indianans love a good pork tenderloin that is larger than the plate and bun that it is served on. And don't forget it! If the Pork Tenderloin is not double the bun, it's not worth eating! These are just a few of the lessons to be taken away from Indiana. And if these are familiar, odds are that one possesses a local's knowledge of the great state of Indiana! Up for the challenge?
