Let's compare which is better with ten important categories:
Wisconsin vs. Minnesota
NFL: Packers Vikings
NBA: Bucks Timberwolves
MLB: Brewers Twins
NHL: None Wild
College: Badgers Gophers
State Bird Robin; Common Loon
State Tree Sugar Maple: Red Pine
State Flower: Wood Violet Pink and White Lady Slipper
State Song: On, Wisconsin Hail! Minnesota
State Motto: Forward The Star of the North
According to our count, Wisconsin wins out 6-4 in the essentials. The Packers, Bucks, and Twins prevail as the most successful franchises historically, while the rest is personal preference. Sure, it isn't the most scientific way to determine which state is better, but Favre has never been orthodox or sane, so we think this works.
What do you think? Any Pink and White Lady Slipper fans out there?
