Default Pop, soda, coke?

Saw this today, thought it was kinda cool, seeing what different parts of the country, and even states call soft drinks.

That map seems mostly accurate, but I live in the Pacific NW and everyone around here calls it soda, while the map suggests we use pop. When I grew up in MI, it was always pop and I didn't start using the term soda until I joined the Navy and got stationed on the west coast.

It's soda, by God. Come to my house and ask for pop and you'll get one in the kisser.

Well, I live in NE and most people call it soda. I usually ask for Coke but that is because Coke is the type of soda I want to drink. I will say that I've never called it pop.

I'm a soda guy.

Got to admit I never understood the coke thing but have learned to say Coca Cola when my answer requires to be expanded upon.
