*** ACC: For much of the conference's first 40 years, Clemson was notorious for being the one football-obsessed school in a basketball-obsessed league. (While other ACC schools, notably charter member Maryland and late-1970s arrival Georgia Tech, cared a good deal about football, they tended to care more about basketball. Clemson didn't even pay lip service to basketball.) This was averted in the early 1990s with a renaissance for Georgia Tech football and the arrival of Florida State, and has since become a thing of the past with the later arrival of football factories such as Miami and Virginia Tech.
* Another college sports example can be seen in UsefulNotes/{{Philadelphia}}. One of the most storied rivalries in college sports is the Philadelphia Big 5, the men's basketball rivalry between four of the city's five Division I schools—La Salle, [[UsefulNotes/IvyLeague Penn]], Saint Joseph's, and Temple—plus Villanova, located in the nearby Main Line suburbs. If you're keeping count, you'll notice that there's one Division I school missing. Drexel is not part of the rivalry, despite not only being in the city proper but also ''physically adjacent to Penn'', making it Philly's college sports Zoidberg. That said, Drexel and Penn do have their own intense rivalry, which is geographically the closest in Division I. The rivalry is called the [[MeaningfulName Battle of 33rd Street]], thanks not only to the two campuses being adjacent, but the schools' basketball arenas being all of ''three blocks apart'' on said street.

* Played for laughs in the ''Website/GiantBomb'' video game community. At first it used to be Jeff, Ryan, Vinny, and Brad Shoemaker, mainly because Brad was known for playing pretty bad during video game quick looks, much to the entertainment of the community. A saying was even coined called "[[PersonAsVerb Pulling a Brad]]," as well as jokes about Brad getting fired and leaving the website. However, in recent years, Brad Shoemaker became decent enough to show off games properly during quick looks, to the point where the ButtMonkey effect wore off and "Team Brad" replaced it. Now Patrick Klepek is considered the "and" guy among the Giant Bomb cast, especially after his controversial articles about sexism in the video game industry, among other things that upset the community: a community that's used to jokes and sarcasm from the main staff, not serious articles about discrimination. He's also been included in almost every quick look since he joined the video game website.

* The megaregion of Southern California (that's with a capital "S") includes every county south of San Luis Obispo County, except Imperial County.[[note]]Santa Barbara County, Ventura County, Los Angeles County, Orange County, San Bernardino County, Riverside County, and San Diego County, with some people including Kern County while others categorize it as part of the Inland Empire[[/note]] Hence, in order to describe the entire geographical region, it's sometimes referred to as "Southern California and Imperial County" or something synonymous. The reason is because Imperial County's population is an order of magnitude smaller than any of the other countries included within the megaregion, or in the case of Los Angeles, ''two'' orders of magnitude smaller. And just like Zoidberg, most natives can remember the other counties but forget that Imperial exists.
