    I'd probably attend a TWolves game or two. Not because they are great or anything, but because, really, what else are you going to do?

    Vikes tickets I'd assume are hard to come by.

    I lived in NE Minnesota for 7-8 years, Minnesota is awesome. If you like the outdoors like me, its even better.

    I live in Phoenix now and there is just as much to do down here as there is in Minneapolis.

    I heard there are two seasons in Minneapolis... Summer and Road Construction. It seems that there is so much snow & ice that many of the roads have to be replaced every few years. Very clean down town area, with a cool 2nd foor tunnel system that connects the downtown buildings (so you don't have to navigate the snowed-in streets).

    Buy a case of "Off". Biggest skeeters you've ever seen.

    That honor belongs to the Fairbanks skeeters.
    They call them Alaska State Birds.
