Soda, coke or pop? What dialect do you speak?
Do you pahk the cah in Hahvahd yahd? Do you refer to multiple people as "dey"? Is a jelly doughnut called a "bismark," or is everything that comes out of a soda fountain called a coke, even if it's really 7-Up? Do you root for Da Bears? The way we speak, both the phrases we use and the accents that inflect those phrases, come from our upbringings.

Grew up Middle Class in Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco. It was always "the Bears," "the Rams," and the "49ers." A few blocks away in Chicago, it was "Da' Bears,'the' Cubs and 'Da' Bulls. So, it's not cities alone, It's also neighborhoods and sports. How about, "he played in Da Davis Cup."
