I CALL FOR A RE-COUNT! No way Minnesota is better than GA. At least we beat Alabama and South Carolina though! Seriously though, we don't have to protect your kids from dying of frost bite 7 months out of the year and and having horrible taste in football teams like Minnesota. Plus,.... find me kind people in Minnesota who say "Yes, Maam" and "No, Sir" and Blesses everyone's heart...... or good country music for that matter. I'll wait!
