How well can Minnesota people pronounce Colorado city and town names? Let's watch and find out.

Thanks to my good friend Barry, who works radio in Minnesota, for helping to put this together.

Minnesota is the "Land Of 10,000 Lakes." Home of the NFL Vikings, the MLB Twins,  NBA Timberwolves and something called lutefisk? By no means, are we trying to poke fun at them? But, it is always interesting how some things we don't even think about (like Ouray and Saguache) are completely foreign concepts to strangers.

Here is the list of Mesa County and Colorado cities that were given:

  • Fruita
  • De Beque
  • Collbran
  • Basalt
  • Olathe
  • Ouray
  • Saguache
  • Dacano
  • Berthoud
  • Ridgway (because of the missing 'E')

So, in fairness, we did the same thing. Here are some of my co-workers trying their best to pronounce Minnesota city names. Who wins THIS challenge?
