11 Strange Habits Every Coloradan Will Defend To The Death
No matter where you’re from, you are guaranteed to have picked up a few little regional quirks and habits through the years. If you are from Florida, you basically go against the grid on everything (JK guys, we love you!). If you are from South Dakota, you support the Minnesota Vikings. If you are from Colorado, you do these 11 strange things that you will gladly defend to the death:
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
1. Our love of green chile
It's no secret that we love us some green chile... and what's not to love? It's perfect on its own or paired with burritos, burgers, fries, oatmeal, ice cream... well, you get the picture!
2. Our dislike of Californians
Look; we really don't have a problem with you moving here... however, if you move here and do nothing but complain about how it isn't anything like California and try to change us, then we have a problem.
3. Spending all of our hard-earned money in Wyoming
We love Colorado and have virtually no complaints about our beautiful state! Okay, scratch that... we have ONE complaint: We have to sneak across the Wyoming border to get the good fireworks. However, seeing as though we only have to make the trip once or twice a year, I guess this isn't a *huge* deal.
The stereotypes are true: Colorado LOVES its Subarus! (I mean, what's not to love about all-wheel drive, sleek colors, comfortable interior, and the status that comes with owning one of these safe -- and expensive -- automobiles?!)
5. Casa Bonita
Actually, I can't even defend this one and refuse to try. Let's move on, shall we?
6. Legal weed
In addition to the fact that we are getting additional tax money out the wahzoo, legal cannabis has added medical benefits, keeps dirty drug money out of the wrong hands, and *add your talking point here.*
Super Bowl 32.
Super Bowl 33.
Super Bowl 50.
Just spout off these 5 things and slowly walk away...
8. Every other Colorado team
We stand by our men through thick and thin, and while it may be hard to explain this to others, we will stay forever loyal to our beloved Rockies, Nuggets, Avs, Rapids, et al.
9. Attending outdoor concerts
One may think that indoor concerts sound the best... well, the one who thinks this would be dead wrong, as the naturally-formed Red Rocks Amphitheatre is not only beautiful, but has quite possibly the best acoustics of any concert venue in the country.
10. Our driving
WE know how to drive, okay? In fact, it could be argued that anyone who doesn't gun it through yellow lights and the first 10 seconds of a red light are the dangers of the road!
11. Being outside 24/7
Colorado is home to the best skiing, hiking, biking, scenery, and oxygen in the world, so why would you ever voluntarily waste a second indoors? (Don't give us the blizzard excuse -- that's completely invalid.)
