Boise Stereotypes — True Or Not?

Here are the 10 true stereotypes about Boiseans, according to real estate site Movoto (full story here):

  1. "Boiseans like to keep things weird"
  2. "Boiseans are immune to the 'Northwest Freeze'"
  3. "But Boiseans would push down you and your grandmother to get to the Broncos game on time"
  4. "Boiseans secretly think they're better than the rest of Idaho"
  5. "Boiseans are fitter than you"
  6. "Boiseans are music snobs"
  7. "Boiseans' favorite summer pastime is complaining about the heat"
  8. "Boiseans are just a little bit protective of their city"
  9. "Boiseans are real environmentalists"
  10. "Boiseans are outdoor lovers to the extreme"

DFO: I agree totally with #4 -- Boiseans (of the Kingdom of Ada) definitely think they're better than other parts of Idaho. Those of us who live in Coeur d'Alene merely smile at the naivete.

Question: Which of these Boise steretypes do you agree with?
