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.

Don’t Be A ‘Father’s Day Skimper’

Don't be a 'Father's Day Skimper' -- defined (by me) as of one the 77% of Americans who spend more, and pay more attention to moms than dads on their day. Besides, dad is easy to please. Quality time with the family (dinner, grilling, outing) is what he wants most, but get him something nice anyway.
