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.

After watching the movie 'Fed Up' three weeks ago, I was intrigued enough to take a 30-Day Sugar-Free Challenge -- to to more accurately depict it, a 30-Day 'Added Sweetener-Free' Challenge. No natural, artificial, zero-calorie, honey, or whatever sweeteners. I just want to see how I feel.

Ohio State Marching Band Has Just Amazed Me [VIDEO]

I'm not one to post a video of a bitter rival's marching band (Go Gophers!), but I stumbled across this video of an Ohio State marching band performance that completely amazed me. You can put this one in the 'Best Marching Band Thing I've Ever Seen' file. You gotta take a second to watch.

I Got A DVR Yesterday: What Shows Should I Record?

Yesterday I walked into the Charter office in Waite Park and traded in my HD receiver for a DVR. (This is where you welcome me to the 1990s.) I used to have a DVR, and put it on my list of 'All-Time Best Inventions' (right between the wheel, and Keurig single-cup coffee maker). Now I need suggestions as to what shows I should record.
