i was born and raised in denver. just moved to portland 3 years ago. most the things you said can be said about portland first. denver sucks and is boring and lacks a lot of culture. and is constantly being strangled by yuppie controlling cheap skate republicans. and CU is nothing to be proud of by the way, a rich kid party school for date rapist frat boys.
