Because there's nothing quite like a good old-fashioned fight, it's Rivalry Week. Keep tabs on simmering feuds across the country right here.
The rivalry between Milwaukee and Chicago is strong, stemming as much from sports border battles as anything else -- Packers/Bears, Bucks/Bulls, Brewers/asinine Cubs fans. On paper, the FIBs have the bigger, more popular flagship of the Midwest. But rivalry games aren’t played on paper (they are played on grass fields with deity-level quarterbacks) and, as of late, it’s not difficult to make the case that Milwaukee is the undeniably better city. Here are 11 reasons why.
1. Our sales tax isn’t INSANE
Cook County recently voted to hike the already-high sales tax even higher into the stratosphere. Soon it will be 10.25%, the highest in the country. Corrupt churches don’t even take tithings of 10.25%. Milwaukee’s sales tax is at a much more reasonable 5.6%, so if you buy $1,000 worth of tighty-whities every year, you’ll save $46.50 just by choosing not to shop at Lord & Taylor.
