Remember that crazy list from Travel + Leisure where we were ranked as the rudest and dumbest city earlier this month (and not to mention last year, too)? Well, the magazine has a little online bracketed game where you can vote for the best cities.

It puts San Francisco up against Phoenix, New York City against Minneapolis. It sounds like SF and NYC have it in the bag. But who is Los Angeles in competition with? Honolulu. For all the people who don't know Los Angeles like we do, Honolulu is an obvious and easy choice to make. So let's make sure they don't win. You can vote for Los Angeles by Sunday here.
