My H was excited to move there becaus of the Vikings... he's mainly a Bills fan, because he's from Buffalo..but as a kid, for some reason he loved the Vikings.
He was bumming when it looked like Farre was going to quit.
He is very excited about all your sports team stuff. He's an aging ol' jock in his heart...lol
Use to play football in school and hockey as a kid.
He's looking forward to season passes and taking our kid to all that stuff.
We should be heading out there in mid to late October.
Looking at places in Minnetonka, Burnsville and Eagan. He will be working not far from the airport and we want to live within a half hour of there.
That would be the big perk of living there..we live inland now, in So-Cali..and he works right near LAX and out of LAX..it's practically a two hour drive each way..in INSANE traffic...nutz.
I told him we , when moving there..simplly MUST go for all the perks we can to balance out the fact that for at least the first year or two , we are going to seriously miss the sun.
I just read that Edin Prairie (near where he will work) is considered one of the best places to raise a kid in the country (and has consistently been so )
In fact, about five towns around Minneapolis have consistently been ranked in the top 100 places to live and raise kids. So...THAT'S cool.
