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.

Chelsea Handler Slammed Pierz Morgan Last Night (On His Show)

I'm a big fan of 'Chelsea Lately' on E! Chelsea and and her guests are funny. They discuss current events, celebrities, and anything else that's on their minds. I usually laugh out loud at some point during the show. Last night she was a guest on Pierz Morgan's show on CNN, and she blasted him during the interview. Here's the video.

How Do You Feel About Kids On Leashes? [Poll]

I have a hunch that this will stir up differing opinions, but how do you feel about kids on leashes? I was waiting for a flight at a gate at MSP, and a mom had her son on an 8-foot leash. While running around he proceeded to wrap his leash around my ankles three times over, like a dog around a tree (a big, annoyed Pete Tree).

‘Spring Forward’ As Daylight Savings Time Begins Tonight

I think Mother Nature's serving of the bitter cold recently has set me up to be caught off guard a bit -- sneaking Daylight Savings Time in on me this weekend. Either before you go to be tonight, or first thing when you get up tomorrow morning, you'll need to turn your clocks ahead one hour.
