U da man
i'll never apologize for bashing hartford. I spent the last 2.5 years of my 20s living/working downtown and getting involved in organizations like hype with nothing to show for it. not everyone here can say that. eventually i just couldnt waste my youth anymore and had to move on. one of the best decisions i ever made but i'll always be bitter about the time i spent there.

You’re in your 20’s? Based on your recruiting posts I figured you were probably about 15

That list is a joke. I'm sure your constant dumping on Hartford, which is actually improving, really helps recruiting.
If my Boneyard posts impact UConn’s recruiting, we were sunk to begin with.

Can’t believe the Fed hasn’t been stated. If you don’t like vending machine snacks, they let you order DoorDash or pizza to the bar.

Remember the days when Chuck’s, Margaritaville, Russian Lady, Civic Pub and the Federal were ALL packed before games?

I have been to 48 capitals. I had business in many and often stayed multiple days. Hartford is darn close to the top ten. Notice that Hartford scored 23rd in quality of life, I think that is low.

Most of the stuff Hartford scores low on is economic and tax related. Government stuff.

Close to top 10? I've been to many of these and no way do I think Hartford could come close to it. Many of these are major cities. Maybe top 30.

I'm surprised that Providence is ranked so poorly at 42.
