Minnesotans Are The Hippest
Chris Menning has conclusively demonstrated that we Minnesotans are the hippest in all of the land with Google Insights for Search data showing that the most searches for the word “hipster” come from Minnesota.

Lingerie Football League Comes To Minnesota
Did Vince McMahon start a football league? Cause the Lingerie Football League would seem to be right in his wheelhouse. Regardless, Minnesota will soon get a taste of what nightwear on the gridiron is all about. And from the looks of it, it could be awfully entertaining.

They’ll play at the Target Center. They haven’t got a name yet but you can submit your suggestion to LFLinMinnesota@LFLUS.com and if it’s picked, you’ll win season tickets for life. Open tryouts will be announced shortly. (If you want to get some practice in before the tryout, we play every Saturday afternoon at the Northeast Minneapolis Athletic Fields. Just saying.) The season home opener is scheduled for October 1, 2011. Found at YouTube from LingerieFootball.
