We love Minnesota

CHASKA, Minn. – Say this about Chaskans (is that what you call someone who hails from Chaska?): They are serious about their golf. The offramp leading to public parking off Highway U.S. 212 was absolutely jammed to a standstill by mid-morning. And when Tiger Woods made his way to the practice tee, thousands filled the grandstands and the grassy bank behind the tee. Just to see a guy hit a bucket of balls. Wow. Bet that many don’t show up to watch the Twins take BP at the MetroDome.
