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.

Cassel Opts Out Of Vikings Contract, Ponder Only QB On Roster

Matt Cassel is opting out of his contract with the Minnesota Vikings to pursue free-agency, leaving Christian Ponder as the only quarterback currently on the roster. The move makes sense for Cassel in a year when the free-agent QB field is thin, possibly earning him a bigger check with a team willing to pay.

Today Is World Cancer Day

Today is World Cancer Day, and according to the CDC, 7.6 million people will die from cancer this year. On October 22, 2002 I was diagnosed with stage-3 colon cancer; it's been eleven and-a-half years now. Screening and early detection saves lives. Simple as that (so don't put it off). Here's a simple way to help raise awareness and money.
