It's no secret I am from Kent, Ohio and right now I am just filled with hometown pride. First off, Kent is rebuilding a lot of it's downtown and bringing in jobs and growing.
Second, my local school Kent State is in the NCAA College World Series for the first time ever! I am loving it, LOVING it. I'm feeling in the past few years a sense of hometown pride. I have never felt it before like this as I used to hate my town and that was mostly cause of the teasing and crap I went through in school.
It swells my heart with pride when I watch the CWS games on ESPN and see Kent State baseball in it- especially since before this year I had never seen them on TV because there are no TV facilities at their ballpark. SO, it's pride in my hometown and it's something I never thought I would ever have.
I was wondering if anyone else ever feels hometown pride at times?
