To be honest, most people in Seattle actually like Portland -- it's like our bratty younger (and much smaller) brother -- but when one of our neighbors to the South decides to talk some serious trash about Seattle, the bloom starts to come off the Rose City. So we've taken it upon ourselves to put the PDX back in its place, and remind everyone that, in the words of famed poet Sir Mix-a-Lot, people in "Seattle ain't bulls**tting"… unless they tell you that one of these 10 reasons Portland kinda sucks isn't totally true.
1. Let's face it: Bigger is better -- The Seattle metro wins by around 1.3 million people. Oh, and to the Portlanders about to trot out that old line about "the motion of the ocean", guess what? Your city's on a frickin' RIVER!
2. Seattle's got a killer music scene -- Whether we're talking influential musicians (Jimi Hendrix, Quincy Jones, Kurt Cobain, etc.), radio stations (KEXP vs… ?), or methods of celebrity suicide, when it comes to musical battles, Portland's bringing a knife to a shotgun fight.
