I have a PS4 and XBox 1. I'm probably going to end up buying the new Xbox first because most of my Call of Duty friends are on Xbox and crossplay has way too many issues with game chat between cross platforms for me to switch over. At some point I may get the PS5 too but the price point for these tw...

3 other Minnesota natives have been picked top 10.
Mauer, Molitor, and Winfield.

Pretty solid company.

Good for Max. He worked his ass off the last couple years. Wouldn't shock me to see him in a Marlins uniform this season. His fastball/slider combo is already big-league ready and could make for a great bullpen arm now while he's developing a third offering.

Re: Let's get to know each other...

Superman IV might be the worst movie of all time. I would actually watch Caddyshack II before I ever tried to stomach S4 again. I remember seeing a clip of it somewhere. Superman was fighting some bad guy on the moon (?) and it looked like it was a comedic spoof of an actual superhero movie. As far...

Re: Consumer Research

6 - 7 hour wait times at the two Sport Clips in Woodbury. :shock: I use a local barber but caved and bought clippers. Definitely will go back to my local guy for next cut. One of my softball teammate's wife has a salon. She sponsors our team so we all try to go to her to get our hair cut to give ba...

Re: Local Broadcasting/Media

Was never really a huge fan of Mike Max when it comes to sports coverage. But he's been spectacular covering everything going on in Minneapolis.
