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.

20 Things Minnesotans Should Brag About (But Don’t Because It’s Not Nice)

A couple of years ago Buzzfeed published a list of things that Minnesota is famous for. Here are the top-20 things from that list -- and frankly I think we need to throw the ol' 'Minnesota Nice' out the window and do some good old fashioned bragging.
