WASHINGTON, D.C. (WUSA) -- There's less than a week now until one of the biggest football game in Washington in a very long time: Sunday's playoff game between the Redskins and the Seahawks.

A lot of sports experts are comparing the two teams, but what about a comparison of the two cities, Seattle and Washington?

For starters, DC has Go-Go and the inimitable Chuck Brown. Seattle has Grunge and the complicated Kurt Cobain.

Washington has the wonderful Wharf, a seafood lover's delight, while Seattle, for some reason, delights in throwing their fish around the Pike Place fish market.

Washington has the monument. Seattle has the needle. They make planes, we make legislation. Slowly.

Washington has tourists, Seattle has techies.

And at the end of the day, Seattle has a nice hot cup of Starbucks coffee, while we here in Washington have a nice hot bowl of Ben's chili.
