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.

The Four NFL Teams I’m Cheering For Today

I'm a hardcore Vikings fan. Born and raised. Because of that, these are the four teams I will be cheering for today: Philadelphia, Houston, Atlanta, Washington. If these four teams win today, the Vikings will be in the #2 draft position (just a half-game out of the top spot) with two weeks left in the season. Go Eagles, Texans, Falcons, Skins!

Vikings Face Eagles Today At The Dome

The Minnesota Vikings (3-9-1) have a chance to maintain or improve their draft status today with a loss to the Philadelphia Eagles (8-5) at the Metrodome. (Yes, I want them to lose.) They are currently 4th in draft order behind Houston, Atlanta, and Washington. A win by either the Falcons or Redskins (with a Vikings loss) would bump them up to second or third with two weeks to go in the season.

Should There Be Special, Closer Parking For Expectant Mothers?

I was running errands around St. Cloud yesterday and came across this sign, right up front close to the store. Special reserved parking for expectant mothers. Not sure how I felt about it. I mean, sure, they are facing challenges. But is it up there with 'disabled?' It's the same parking privilege? Let me know what you think.

Happy Holidays (or) Merry Christmas?

Cindy and I received an email from a listener in St. Cloud this morning, complaining that we sometimes say 'Happy Holidays' instead of 'Merry Christmas.' She insists that we say 'Merry Christmas,' stating that the whole reason for the season is the birth of Christ. Here's the email and our thoughts. What do you think?

Vikings At Baltimore Today: Want Them To Win? [POLL]

The Minnesota Vikings (3-8-1) visit the Baltimore Ravens (6-6) today at Noon on FOX. My question is do you want them to win? There's no question that this season is lost, so personally I would like to see them go 0-4 to closeout the season, driving them to the best possible draft pick. (Quarterback anyone?) How do you feel?
