I grew up in Portland, OR and Seattle is the closest and it's definitely not local. There are at least as many 49er fans in Portland as Seahawk fans.
I would venture to guess you live on or near the East Coast to think bordering a state puts you in close proximity. The Western states are huge and it takes awhile to get from one to another...
