AJ inspired me. If the Edmonton blog gets to do completely arbitrary comparisons to prove their team is better than the Avs, then I get to as well. But, I should at least do it in a fair way and just see the results. Then, you, as fans, can decide because clearly a bunch of people clicking a choice on a poll online is totally and completely indicative of the truth. So...
"Colorado" has 8 letters. "Edmonton" has 8 letters. That's a tie.
"Avalanche" has 9 letters. "Oilers" has 6. The Avs lead 9 to 6 in this category.
Add that up, the Avs win this round 17 to 14.
"Colorado Avalanche" has 8 vowels. "Edmonton Oilers" has 6 vowels. The Avs win this round 8 to 6.
Edmonton is a city. Colorado is a state. Colorado is bigger. The Avs wins this round.
"Mile High Hockey" has 14 letters. "Copper N Blue" has 11. The Avs win this round as well.
The grand total is a whopping 4 rounds to 0 in the Avs' favor. I never expected this sort of romping at all. Wow, I really thought it would be closer. I am certainly surprised, let me tell you. However, I don't matter, you all do. What say you...
