Take time to tailgate!
There's more to Minnesota baseball than just the Twins. Saint Paul, our beautiful capital city, is the home of the Saint Paul Saints who play for the Northern League.
Last Summer I was tailgating before a game when I was invited to participate as the "Grand Fan of the Game." All I would have to do is suit up in a whole lot of velcro and be stuck to a billboard in right field for as long as I could stand it. Of course, I said yes! it was an exhilarating 9-innings--and I came away with a little soreness and a big cash reward.
Saints games are known for a great time--as much for the baseball as for the atmosphere. You can watch the entire game from a hot tub in center field or get a haircut, for instance. The announcers are hilarious and there are plenty of stunts between innings.
The team mascot is a pig named "Mudonna." And Bill Murray is part owner of the team. Life doesn't get any better than a Saints game in the Summer!
Thier motto is "Fun is good"
Equipment: IcyHot, if you plan to go for the "GrandFan" title...
Otherwise just you, your friends, and a healthy appetite for popcorn, beer and hotdogs!
Go Saints! Fun IS Good!

Big Twin Cities River Walleye
There is a walleye sanctuary just south of the Ford Plant on the Mississippi. Because all walleye here are catch and release - they grow really big! 3 pound plus walleye are an easy catch in this area.
Equipment: Long pole, jig, and minnow - catches all the fish here!
Charles M. Schulz Highland Arena
Any given evening in the winter, you can watch a kids hockey game taking place here. It's a great arena.
