John Hart, Jim Callis and Jonathan Mayo discuss Twins outfielder Byron Buxton being ranked No. 1 on MLB.com’s list of top prospects. Buxton tops the list of talented Twins prospects…There’s hope in Twinsville, folks! (Thanks for @MNSportsCrap for the find)
St. Paul blogger (Eccentric Aspects) and photographer Nick Wormley created this awesome timelapse video of what St. Paul’s new Green Line light rail line from our capital city to Minneapolis will look like once it starts running in 2014. How’d he do it? By walking the length of the route with a camera attached to his head (here are the details)! H/T @generebeck,
This is the exact same light rail line I will be taking every day to Minneapolis for my new venture next year. Watch and enjoy:
The Chatterbox Pub is one of my favorite spots in St. Paul, be it for business lunches or happy hours. The food is great, service excellent, the craft beer is brewed on site and you can play retro video games to your heart’s delight!
Chatterbox Pub is located at 800 Cleveland Ave S, St Paul, MN 55116. Phone: (651) 699-1154. Hours: 11 AM – 1 AM, Mon-Fri; 8 AM – 1 AM Saturday; 8 AM – 12 AM Sunday. Chatterbox Pub in St. Paul, Minnesota via David Erickson.
Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen is expanding in the Twin Cities by opening another location, this one at Lexington and University Avenues in St. Paul. I tried it the day it opened and found it to be far superior to the KFC it replaced. Popeye’s Louisiana Kitchen Opens In St. Paul from David Erickson‘s YouTube channel.
Q Fanatic in Champlin used to be my favorite Minnesota BBQ restaurant. But they’ve been supplanted by Rooster’s BBQ Deli in Saint Paul since I discovered Rooster’s several years ago. Since I live in St. Paul, Rooster’s obviously is more convenient but it is also a lot better.
It’s a go-to restaurant for me on Saturdays after a few touch football games. I usually get a baby back rib dinner that includes fries, a roll and coleslaw but lately I’ve been getting the combo meal with ribs and chicken. Their spicy hot is actually hot, not “Minnesota hot,” which is mild. You can eat in, though there isn’t a lot of room for that; I always order take out. They also cater.
Volkswagon’s Super Bowl ad features an office worker who sounds like a Jamaican who has lived for many years in Russia…but he’s supposed to be a Minnesotan! C’mon, Volkswagon; you don’t expect your ad agency to do even just a tiny bit of research to get the accent correct, don’tchknow?!? Found at YouTube from Volkswagen.

My buddy Chris and I used to canoe down Rice Creek all the time as teens, except we’d do it in the summer and at night, to give it the Swamp Thing feel.
We’d start at Old Highway 8 and County Road H in New Brighton, across from The Mermaid, and paddle down Rice Creek, across Long Lake, and we’d hit shore at Chris’ home along Rice Creek near Silver Lake Road.
