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 two-time cancer survivor now (Colorectal 2002, Kidney 2014), 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.

To me, Brad Paisley's new 'River Bank' feels like a pretty good summer tune for 2014, but what do you think is best country summer song ever? Lot's to choose from! Kenny Chesney's Summertime?

Excited For Vikings Training Camp? (Me too!)

It happens every summer. Minnesota Vikings training camp starts, and my purple blood starts flowing with optimistic anticipation. Camp starts this year in Mankato on July 24th. Last season was painful. This season is an unknown, but at least the team made some off-season moves that I can be excited about (not that it takes much). Skol!

When Have You Had To Apologize For Something Your Kid Said?

Last weekend I took my 4 year-old nephew to the Omni Theater at the Science Museum in St. Paul to see the dinosaur movie. At one point in the movie, one dino kills another; leaving it in a pool of blood. The little girl next to us was crying, when her Dad said, "Don't worry, it's just taking a nap." Then my nephew blurts out...

Looking For Something Fun To Do This Weekend? Try Minnehaha Falls

I spent yesterday afternoon at Minnehaha Park in south Minneapolis for the first time since I was probably ten, and highly recommend it for a date, family outing, or a quiet walk alone (and a glass of wine and some oysters on the half-shell if that's your thing).

What Did You Say ‘Your Kids Would Never Do’ — And Then Caved?

It's been quite a while since I had a small child running around. My daughter is grown and has kids of her own now, but there was a time when I was all idealistic -- and had a list of things, "My kids would never do," (behave that way in public, eat junk food, watch too much TV, etc). Funny to look back. What were your 'My Kid Will Nevers?' Did you cave?
