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.

Twitter Reacts To Adrian Peterson Suspension

As Twitter shows, the reactions to Adrian Peterson's suspension for the rest of the season by the NFL, are all over the road. Interestingly, the main focus seems to have shifted from whether AP abused his 4 year-old son, to whether the NFL is acting appropriately. Not surprising I guess.
