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.

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?
