  Calgary knocks Edmonton in round 1
by cybercutie

Favorite thing: For many years, Calgarians and Edmontonians have had a sort of rivalry. Although they are only 21/2 hours apart and looking as an outsider probably seem very similar, when the Calgarians hear you went to Edmonton or live there, there is always a sneer or snide remark...and vice versa. I think it started with the Hockey teams, Flames and Oilers, and just escalated from there. Although it is mostly in clean fun, be careful of singing Edmonton's praises in the company of Canadians. you may find yourself starting a riot...

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
