Minnesota Stereotypes...Uffda

by Siri Freeh

Living in the Red River Valley provides a population that represents the best of both worlds - Nodaks and Minnies (I don't think anyone actually uses those terms...). Having lived in both territories, I can appreciate the many nuances and quirks of people on both sides of the river. However, there are a few differences...

Minnesotans undying dedication to a sports team (or teams for that matter...) that continually disappoints them; the engrained disdain for green and yellow (no I'm not referring to NDSU here); and our coffee of choice, represented by an animal I've never even seen in the North Star State.

All the above are included in the 10 Minnesota Stereotypes That Are Completely Accurate . I would like to raise argument with a few of those listed (What the heck does Prince have to do with Minnesota? He's married to Kate last I checked...).

Yet, overall? It's quite an interesting list...
