Want to Be the Most Hated Person in Tri-Cities? Wear These Risky Clothes
Fitting in can be hard.
Don't wear these articles of clothing if you want the people of Tri-Cities to hate you.
I've lived in Tri-Cities for nineteen years; grew up here myself and now I'm raising my family here. Some days I feel like I know what makes the community tick. Today is one of those days, but ask me tomorrow.
What do people like in Tri-Cities?
Tri-Cities is a good sports town. The community fiercely supports its two main home teams, the Tri-City Americans and Tri-City Dust Devils. One quick way to make friends here is to say, "Man, that Gavin kid is gonna be a good hockey player. Watch out!"
Aside from the hometown teams, Tri-Citians tend to be Seahawks fans. Sure, you'll see people in gear from other teams, but Friday tends to see the community adorned in "college navy" and "action green." A good number of us are Mariners fans, but it's not nearly as diehard a fandom. 2021 saw the addition of the NHL's Seattle Kraken and already you can see Kraken gear out and about.
Could you wear 49ers gear? Obviously, you could. But you better be ready for a talking to, however, the good news is that it's usually in old-fashioned fun. The most polarizing sports question you can ask in Tri-Cities is, "what college team do you root for?" Plenty of house signs say "Coug Country," but that's disputed by the University of Washington flag that's waving less than a block away.
What shouldn't you wear in Tri-Cities?
If you care too much about what people think of you and you really want to make friends in Tri-Cities, you should avoid wearing these items.
