    Which State is Your States Enemy?

    They have an article up on Deadspin in regards to which states are enemies. I'm not sure how, but Iowa's is.....Illinois? Maybe it's an eastern Iowa thing, but Illinois is about the last border state I would say we have any kind of natural rivalry with. I would say Nebraska, or maybe Missouri. We did damn near go to war with Mizzou over the border. There is no criteria given, so I guess they just pulled it out of their ***. I do think its funny that Texas hates everyone.

    Nebraska should be paired with us. I have no problem with IL.

    I friggn' HATE Prince Edward Island. Freaking Canucks and their sanctimony. "I live on an island. I am better than you dumb Americans with all your medicine and moon landings and stuff". Oooooooo. Sorry to be on your planet Cajun Orphans. You can have your Yankee-free Cuban beachs and shove them up your bacon hole. Only two things worth while ever came out of Prince Edward Island: Flaky puffs and that guy who was the second-in-command bouncer in the movie "Roadhouse". Other than that, PEI is batting ZERO on the Human Achievement scale. PEI GFY!!!

    Re: Which State is Your States Enemy?

    There are a lot of jokes about Missouri down here in the Laplands.

    Like, if a man and a woman get married in Missouri and then move to Iowa, and then get divorced, will they still be brother and sister?

    Ugly stuff. Ugly, I say.

    Re: Which State is Your States Enemy?

    From a sports perspective, there was a pretty ugly BB recruiting war between Iowa and Illinois back in the day. Can't remember who the recruit was, but it got pretty nasty, and continued to be for quite a few years after.

    EDIT: It was Deon Thomas. Bruce Pearl was involved. Surprise, surprise

    I'm living in Massachusetts, and it's clear they have an issue with New York. However, I've always thought that that problem is a little one-sided based more on jealously than anything else.

    It really all depends on which side of the state you grew up. I grew up in Davenport, so we hated Illinois with a passion.

    And I don't have to look this up to know which state hates Michigan (and vice versa) - Ohio without a doubt. Kind of clear when Ohio cops go all scum the week of the Michigan-Ohio St game by pulling over drivers just for having a Michigan plate.
