Pete Hanson

I'm just a regular Minnesota guy that grew up on the north-side of the Cities (Fridley), spent some quality time at the U of M, chill on the weekends at the family cabin near Duluth, bleed Vikings purple, and miss the North Stars. I have a short attention span; and enjoy Pink Floyd, Johnny Cash, Zac Brown, 80s hair bands, coffee, beer, scotch, and long sunset walks on the beach. (One of those isn't true.) I'm a cancer survivor of eleven years now, and know that life is damn short -- so by all means we should be playing as hard and as often as we can. I think that's it. (Did I mention that I have a short attention span?) Hit me up below on Facebook & Twitter.

There is nothing more mind-numbing that watching either MSNBC or Fox News Channel. Many hate one or the other based on the ridiculously one-sided, biased reporting from either a liberal or conservative slant. I hate them both because they are horrible, laughable, and nauseating. ('Hate' might be a strong word.) Perfect.
