New Orleans vs. Cleveland: Bracketology compares the cities
New Orleans hosts the 2012 Final Four this weekend because, frankly, who does major events better? In the first two weeks of this year alone, the city had a remarkable run of nine major sporting events, including the BCS championship game, the Sugar Bowl and an NFL playoff game.
So I was a little surprised to see this blog on cleveland.com that pitted Cleveland vs. New Orleans in a bracket competition. Topics included weather (edge: Cleveland), writers (New Orleans), rivers (Cleveland) and football, music and drinks ... I'll let you read those answers for yourself.
Topics up for debate also included: notorious politicians (New Orleans), food (Cleveland), television show settings (Cleveland), geography (Cleveland), decadence (New Orleans) and local colleges (Tulane fans, prepare yourselves).
Sure, I could collaborate with my coworkers to compose a rebuttal, but I think this is best left in the hands of our readers. Have fun with it and, remember, it's all meant in good fun.
