Who Are The Worst Drivers?

The office I work in gives me a lot of heat because I have lived in Iowa. I also take heat because I lived in Minneapolis. All I hear is "St. Louis is the greatest", or "Missouri is the most superior state" or most of the time "Iowa sucks". These comments range from everything to how girls look, sports teams, or many other things.

I mostly hear about how the Missouri Tigers would beat the Iowa Hawkeyes in football. After a comment like this is made you can usually find me with my head on my desk with tears rolling down my cheeks because I am laughing so hard. The poster that sits above my desk right now is not a popular poster. It is a sign reading "Missouri Football, We'll play ANYONE (that we think we can beat)". The picture behind this statement is a big chicken with an M on its chest. This poster has not gone over well to say the least.

Well, I just came across this article and I thought I would post it. This article once again shows that Iowa or Minnesotat are not inferior states. In fact it appears to be quite the opposite. Now don't get me wrong, I love St. Louis. It is a great city, with great people. I am merely posting this to "educate" my fellow workers.

I tend to disagree with Wisconsin being ranked so high. I have live in Eau Claire, and they are by far the worst and dumbest drivers I have ever seen.

Iowa may have the best football teams, but California has the best drivers because they're the wildest, and Illinois has the best baseball team because they're the Cubbies. Of course, this is just one man's opinion.

I actually am a St. Louis Cardinals fan so I will have to disagree with your Cubs take. I actually watched some of the Cubs game today. Do you think Prior is going to be okay after that shot he took on the arm?

For those of you out there who have never lived in beautiful cities,gone to other games, driven in the traffic, or just taken in the beauty of different
cities don't always think you know it all because you have been somewhat sheltered living in one city your whole life. Don't dump on someone or someplace if you really do not know what you are talking about.Experience tells all.

To diamond lil,
Well, I've done all those things so does that give me the right to dump ??
