Video: Denver is a better city than Seattle, and Mo Rocca can prove it

While tourist agencies in Denver and Seattle have gone out of their way to highlight things the communities have in common (other than legal pot, that is), this Sunday's Super Bowl featuring the Broncos and Seahawks has still managed to ramp up competition between the cities. But which is better? CBS offers dueling perspectives, with John Blackstone hyping Seattle and Mo Rocca arguing for Denver -- and arguing well. See Rocca's hilarious tribute to craft beer, Chipotle, Rocky Mountain oysters, Hacky Sack and white guys with dreads below.
