Twins Trade Denard Span to Nationals

The Nationals announced that they acquired center fielder Denard Span from the Twins for minor league right-hander Alex Meyer. Alex Meyer is a 6-foot-9  right-hander selected 23rd overall by Washington in the 2011 draft. Twins fans should be excited. This guy is known to be a power pitcher with a lot of upside. Twins owners better check the height of their dugout though.

Major malfunction at the University of Minnesota, Crookston recently. They are a Division II team, but they are still an academic institution right? Are they using replacement football field crews too? Fail!

Prince has a new look and a new song

Prince 2012

Prince has a new look and a new song and album, and both fall squarely under the category of old school. He showed them off on ABC’s The View this morning. Watch.

A new Prince song titled “RnR Affair” (“Rock & Roll Love Affair” ) is a throw-back poppy track that is reminiscent of the old stuff we loved from our beloved Minnesota music export. Listen to it below.

Prince is also rumored to be dating his new young protégé Andy Allo. Allo’s new album was executive produced by Prince and features three songs he co-wrote.

Want to fake kill Osama bin Laden?

Bin Laden killed repeatedly in Twin Cities suburb game

Bin Laden killed repeatedly in Twin Cities suburb game

In St. Paul, Minnesota, a former Navy Seal, Larry Yatch, is offering people who fantasize about killing other people a chance to participate in a reenactment of the Seal raid that executed Osama bin Laden in a Pakistani compound last year.

This isn’t a real military operation. It’s a high-end role-playing game. People pay $325 to re-enact the bin Laden raid. Although the mission is fake, Yatch, Sealed Mindset’s president, is a real Navy SEALs vet. He opened the 10,000-square-foot studio with his wife Anne in April. So far, 137 people have signed up to pretend to kill a man wearing a white robe and a fake beard.

They should try to capture him alive, unless he starts shooting back. “If he presents a lethal threat, take him out,” Yatch instructed. “I don’t want to have to write a letter to any of your parents, okay?”

The company offers 73 defense classes each month and “live scenario trainings” designed to mimic actual threats. Yatch has set up fake kidnappings, fake carjackings, and even a fake shooting by a disgruntled employee.

NYC Sitcom Map

The amount of shows and movies based in NYC is staggering. As a guy from Minnesota, I always kinda grew tired of seeing everything based in NY or LA. Of course, we have had our share here in Minnesota too. Okay well three: 1. Coach 2. Little House on the Prairie, and 3. The Mary Tyler Moore Show. If it weren’t for Tim Allen or The Coen Brothers, we probably wouldn’t have any films based here.
