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.

Are You Minnesota Enough?: The Minnesotan Accent [Watch]

Seriously, this is one of the best online series I've come across; called 'Are You Minnesota Enough?' created by the folks on the TPT Rewire team. It celebrates MN food, lakes, lifestyle, and more -- and is always good for a self-deprecating Minnesota laugh don't ya know.

The State Fair Lineup Proves I’m 100% Minnesotan

I was looking at the State Fair grandstand lineup this weekend, realizing that I (much like Donnie & Marie) am a little bit country & a little bit rock & roll. Def Leppard? (Love), Carrie Underwood? (Yes), Alan Jackson? (Cool), Lynyrd Skynyrd? (Yup), Merle Haggard? (Why are U even asking?) -- but what's the one performance I have to see?

We All Play A Part In Saving Minnesota Motorcycle Riders’ Lives

In the past nine days alone, five motorcycle riders have died on Minnesota roads. Spring is always a dangerous time as drivers have become unaccustomed to seeing riders over the winter. Do the riders play a part in their own safety? No doubt, but please be aware of the impact you can have as a car or truck driver.

Something Fishy’s Going On In Minnesota: Walleye Opener Tomorrow

Few days in Minnesota are celebrated like the opening weekend of the fishing season. Tomorrow marks the start of the 2015 walleye season on our 11,842 lakes. (I know we say 10,000 -- but Minnesotans don't like to brag.) I'll be spending the day on the water up north. Here are some interesting Minnesota fishing facts.

Wild Eliminated, Swept By Blackhawks (Go Rox, Lumberjacks, & Renegades)

For all the talk that this was the best Wild team ever, and a team that had what it took to win a Stanley Cup -- things sure went to hell in a hand basket quickly. The Blackhawks kicked our ass up and down the ice for four straight games. If one person tells me that Minnesota actually 'played better' than Chicago. #Embarrassing
