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 Eric Church, Johnny Cash, Zac Brown, Kid Rock, Pink Floyd, 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?)

Sunday Could Be Coldest Game In Vikings’ History

Yes its been a mild winter, but global warming be damned -- Sunday could be the coldest home game in Vikings' history, with the purple-clad gladiators taking the field against the Seattle Seahawks with the lowest kickoff temp since the record was set in Bloomington at Metropolitan Stadium in 1972 (and that's sayin' something). Skol!
