10 Hills Every Coloradan Is Willing To Die On
Wherever you hail from, you are sure to pick up various quirks, opinions, and traits, and Colorado is no exception! In addition to these locally-grown ideologies and insights, you will also find that there are a lot of darn hills (or 14ers, if that is more your speed) that you, as a Coloradan, are willing to die on. These are some of the top things Coloradans will argue over:
1. C'mon, guys - the Broncos are not *that* bad.
I mean, sure: Russell Wilson hasn't panned out quite as we hoped, and sure, the Raiders ended up beating us last second in that one game, but... We had Peyton! We've won Super Bowls! We... did some other cool stuff, too!
2. Green means go, yellow means go, and red means you have another 5 seconds before you absolutely have to stop!
In Colorado, the color of the traffic light is merely a suggestion.
3. Electric vehicles are cool, and all, but Subarus are where it's at.
What's not to love about this versatile vehicle? They are safe, they purr like a kitten while driving through rough mountain terrain, and they have the highest resale value... they are practically perfect in every way.
4. It's Shane Co. or no-go.
If you are buying a special gift for that special someone, you best not go to Jared or any of those other chains, as YOU have a friend in the diamond business via dear old Tom Shane!
5. FBA, 4-H, and/or FFA should be mandatory for all high school students!
Pick one (or all), and you will find not only life lessons and skills but lifelong friendships and memories.
6. Rocky Mountain Oysters? Don't knock 'em until you try 'em.
The concept may sound off-putting, but using *every* part of the cow is both smart and surprisingly delicious (especially when it's served with a side of cocktail sauce - no pun intended).
7. Staying on the topic of food, Colorado green chile is superior to New Mexico green chile.
This shouldn't require any explanation, as anyone with tastebuds (or eyes) can tell the difference.
8. Colorado's Mountain-Style pizza is the best!
We love pizza as much as the next person and can see why New York or Detroit may think they have the best pie, but you truly haven't lived until you have dipped Beau Jo's pillowy crust into a pool of honey.
9. Dogs > cats.
One wants to be your loyal friend and companion for life while showering you with love and affection 24/7, and the other is secretly plotting your death while you sleep. Choose wisely.
10. Colorado is superior to every other state.
It isn't just natives who think it, as out-of-staters (we are looking at you, California and Texas!) continue to pour in at record speed! Can you blame them?
