Why can't Detroit outdo Tony Packo's in Toledo?

Sometimes I think I'm a skirted cheerleader for Detroit. On the auto blogs--and there are so many--I am always defending the home turf from the barbarians at the gate. But I never understood the LaFayette vs American coney dog rivalry. I even watched the Food Wars episode. At last year's auto show I bought one dog at LaFayette and another dog at American. I ate them alternately one bite at at time. No difference. No difference at all. Give up the rivalry, there is no difference at all.

Then, after 25 years of seeing billboards cajoling me to taste a Tony Packo dog in Toledo, I succumbed. It was wonderful. Why can't we do this?
