Super Bowl trash talk: is Seattle better than Denver?

Wandering around Denver on assignment a year ago, I couldn’t decide if it was Bend, Ore., on steroids (an outdoor recreation and beer valhalla) or Spokane’s big brother, predictable Americana sprawling across the plains. This week, the Seattle Times and the Denver Post will be trading some good-natured urban trash talk in advance of the Super Bowl. The Seattle Times’ Sharon Chan did so with the San Francisco Chronicle before the NFC championship; the Chronicle’s Marshall Kilduff compared Seahawks coach Pete Carroll to “the guy in the Viagra commercials.”

Time to amp it up for the Super Bowl. How do Denver and Seattle stack up – on culture, food, music, work and life, as well as football? Send us your thoughts and help us lob some shots across the Continental Divide… with more force than Peyton Manning’s “ducks.”
