I was born and raised in Minnesota, grew up in the Twin Cities (Fridley), and attended the University of Minnesota. I bleed the Vikings purple and Gophers maroon & gold. I miss the State Fair and Renaissance Festival this year, and can't get enough of the beauty of Minnesota's great outdoors.

You can add skiing Minnesota hills, kicking through Minnesota fall leaves, running on Minnesota dirt trails, camping in Minnesota State Parks, and swimming in Minnesota waters to my list of favorite things.

Having said all that -- I only scored 72 percent on this quiz. Let me know if you top that (and I know most of you will) at
