My wife is from Europe and calls it fizzy drinks. Didn't know any Americans did. Seriously though, its all coke.
Team soda. Although according to the map, I should apparently think it's all coke. I've yet to ever have a waiter ask me "what kind?" when I order Coke --they always take that to mean I actually want a Coke.
I call it pop and soda (from Detroit). I now live in Georgia (14 years now), though, and I have never heard it referred to generically as 'coke' in an actual setting. I've heard southerners say that everything is called coke, but never heard a waitress say it or anyone else in a restaurant/dining setting. I've been all over the South and never heard it anywhere else either.
