`Massholes' Cooler Than Guidos?

Wednesday, January 27, 2010 17:21 GMT

BOSTON, Mass. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The guidos from Jersey Shore may be hot right now, but another group from the East Coast is much cooler.

“Massholes” are a subculture of sports nuts that hail from Massachusetts known for their thick accents and aggressive driving skills.

Neil DiCastro, from massholesports.com, says massholes may not have the same recognition as guidos, but they too are born to be stars.

If MTV created a show about massholes, DiCastro says viewers would be exposed to new, hip slang words like “wicked” and “pissa,” both used to describe something that’s awesome.

Instead of clubbing every night like the Jersey Shore guidos, the show would feature massholes doing what they do best: Cheering for the Red Sox at Fenway Park while getting their drink on.

DiCastro assures that the term masshole is a compliment and not the slightest bit derogatory.

They deserve a shot in the national spotlight since many Americans aren’t familiar with their unique lifestyle.
