for a republican president was 1972. That's definetely something to be proud of. Unfortunately you guys did vote for Norm Coleman. :(

11. Twin Tone Records!
I was surfing their site today, and it made me nostalgic for my college days, when I could go into a bar and see Soul Asylum, The Replacements, Hsker D, The Magnolias, The Blue Hippos, Trip Shakespeare, and any number of other wonderful bands.

Anyone ever been to the CC Club?

30. Holy Sh*t!
Whenever my band played the Entry or the 1st Ave (or Uptown or Lee's Liquor), we'd always go to the CC Club for bloody marys in the morning. Ah, the halcyon days of youth...

13. Al Franken! (Plus, all the children are above average.)
Edited on Thu May-06-04 10:24 PM by gmoney
Any state that produced Al Franken and Bob Dylan has earned its stripes.

Is Wellstone a Minnesota native? If so, more mad props...

Not to mention Post-It notes.

17. According to a segment on the KSTP nightly NEWS last night,
Minnesota is poorly rated in terms of the dating scene.

Yup. That's real news. :eyes:

25. New a Missourian that used the "youbetcha", he ran for Congress back
in the 80's(?), name was Wayne Cryts. He was from around Sikeston I think. It's been many years since I've heard from him. Doggoneit, I ramble as I get old, sorry bout that. :)

23. Love Minnesota, have only been there once for about two weeks to go
canoeing north of Ely at the Boy Scout camp, this was in '67 and I was 15. :) God, that was some of the most incredible landscapes I have ever seen. We didn't pack water, we drank the runoff from our paddles, it had tested that pure.
Didn't mean to wax nostalgic but some of my fondest memories are of that trip, and then there is the larger than life Sen. Paul Wellstone.

24. Minnesotans hate stadiums.
And they're completely fine with their NFL and MLB teams playing in a shithole, much unlike the attitude of every other major city in the country.

27. Home of the artist formerly known as the artist formerly known as Prince
home of Aquavit -- famous Minneapolis restaurant with an Ethiopian-born chef

Cinematic paradise for "Fargo." ... "Which one of ya slept with the little fella?" Not to mention that Minneapolis is Mary Richard's fictional adopted hometown.

Flat, flat, flat.

Ice fishing!

Wasn't "Giants in the Earth" set there? (Or is it "Giants of the Earth?")

I never been dere!
