You Know You’re From Minnesota When _______.
I visited my parents in the cities this weekend, and I was talking about the fact that I was ready for Vikings football. My Dad says, “You’re always ready for Vikings football.” True enough. You know you’re from Minnesota when you look forward to the start of a new Vikings season, even though you know it’s gonna end badly. That’s mine. What’s yours?
