East v. West Smackdown!

D.C.'s got a lot of great stuff, but how does it stack up to Colorado?

The day after I made my decision I started to compare the two. I shared this with my sisters who also had some good ones. Here’s what we came up with:

Washington Monument v. Pike's Peak
Tubing trip v. Rafting trips
National Mall v. 16th St. Mall (ok, D.C. gets this one)
Mudslinging v. Gunslinging
Cherry Blossom 10-miler v. The Boulder Boulder
Potomac River v. Platte River (based on drinkability)
D.C. DMV v. Colorado DMV (Anyone's got to be better than D.C.)
Security Guards v. Cattlegaurds
Capitol Grille v. Traildust (it's got a slide!)
Heels v. Boots
Climbing the ladder v. Mountain climbing
Live to work v. Work to live
Motorcades v. Cattle drives
Yuengling v. Fat Tire (or Coors...ha)
Right-hand man v. Ranchhand
Tyson's Corner v. Cherry Creek
City lights v. Starlight
Wild life v. Wildlife
Politicians v. Cowboys
Crabcakes v. Rocky Mountain Oysters (hmmm…)
Capitol Hill v. Foothills

Alright, it may not be the most scientific of comparisons, but it's interesting!

I still think the one I helped you with the mudslinging vs. gunslinging is hilarious, because is gun slining really a positive? :) You have to understand that means in the acting old west gun fight reinactment shows...! I also love the security guards vs. cattle guards. But you didn't add the snipe hunting vs. snipers on the white house one. -HA
I have to tell you this was the highlight of my day yesterday. After I got off the phone with you it all went down hill with the kids!

When i read your blog on how you decided to leave DC and the hours after you decided warped me back to 3 years ago. Even though I did not know where I was going to end up when I left DC, Denver was the best choice I ever made! I am very excited for you to be back in the rockies.

I suggested the last two, but was half asleep when we talked, then she had to suddenly get off the phone, but I didn't realize she had hung up, because there was no dial tone, and ended up just laying in bed with the phone to my ear while she tried like ten times to call back. :)
