Sorry D'back, it's the pigs.I have lived in both Des Moines and Minneapolis for at least more than 4 years at a time. There is really not that much difference in the people. Even most of the people in Minneapolis are transplants from smaller towns and grew up in a rural environment. The largest difference you will see though is if you go downtown Minneapolis and spend 6 dollars a beer you will experience a much higher rate of douchebaggery than you will in downtown des moines. So, in reference to Steve. If you have ever lived in Minneapolis/St Paul before you would know that a lot of the population is from rural communities from Iowa, Minnesota, and Wisconsin as much of the population of Wisconsin West of Eau Claire come to Minneapolis looking for work. Iowa people may not be more urban than people in Minnesota, but they certainly arent any less either. Grandparents have lived in the Rochester, MN area for my entire life as well which is another city center and possibly the only other one Minnesota has. They are by no stretch of the imagination urban there either. My guess is that the Minnesota and Iowa wrestlers get their "attitude" from their coaches. And also from the hardwork that they have had to go through growing up just living in the environment they are in.
