New Orleans: Gastronomic wonderland, studded with striking colonial architecture found few other places in America, prone to flooding and patches of extreme poverty. HOLY COW DID YOU SEE THAT RAT. Blessed with a long tradition of both homegrown and adopted literary and musical talent, and currently enjoying underdog status as a unique multicultural city on the comeback trail following the worst natural disaster in recent national history. Sometimes, people get naked in the streets for tiny balls of plastic.(Italics mine, HR)
Indianapolis: Proud of their shrimp cocktail. Clean, mostly. Much less likely to get shot in than New Orleans. Ample parking day and night. David Letterman got his start there as a weatherman, and sometimes gave humorous but fake updates...which angered people. Not exactly diverse. The favorite, and therefore not the beloved underdog. Brushes and flosses, takes the garbage out promptly, and likes a good night out at Applebees.
So America, to review: you'll root for who you want to be (New Orleans) while rooting against who you actually are (Indianapolis).
HT: Kyle King at Dawg Sports, while investigating which team Bulldawg fans will be rooting for.
And there's no question what team I (UGA - 2002) will be rooting for. Woof Dat.
