Yeah, with Lake Michigan out your door, the northwoods within spitting distance, Lake Superior and the U.P. just a short drive away, Green Bay is the suckiest place for a guy with Favre's off-the-field outdoors interests. I can see why he would want to live in a metro area far from God's Country, all right. winkwink

LOL....It's funny how many MN license plates I see at the landings when I'm fishing on the lakes by my cabin. I thought they had 10,000 to fish on??? WI....God's country indeed!!!

You know why there are so many people from MN in WI? Because WI sucks.

No kidding.

And MN infastructure over WI. Some towns in WI have 1985 k-5 blazers as their police vehicles.

My post has nothing to do with Minn vs Wis, though I guess if you guys feel like getting into that tired old pi$$ing match there's nothing anyone can do to stop it.

My post had everything to do with Favre's non-football outdoors interests, and how much more easily those interests might have been served in Green Bay than they will be in the metroslime of the Twin Cities. I could make the exact same argument for his living in Duluth (Minn.) instead of the metroslime of Milwaukee (Wis), which basically has become an exburb of the King Metroslime of Chicago.

But you all jus' keep havin' fun dissin' the neighbor states if that's what keeps you happy. gringringrin

My guess is there are more transplants that end up in Mn than WI because of better employment, health care, schools, and arts. WI doesn't sucks, it's just hard to have an intelligent conversation with a cheese head. If Favre moves here it's only because he received a contract to play football for the Vikes. Which would be the same reason he lived in WI.

I doubt he had much time to partake in the outdoors during season. And when the season wasn't going he was back down in Mississippi.

I've heard rumblings the Wild are looking for new talent, so I wouldn't rule it out. Maybe Gabby can throw a football laugh

No, the real funny thing is how many WI "hunters" come to ND to chase deer and coyotes with their vehicles and yet get their vehicles taken away every year,(slow learners) you hear about instances like this every year!!! WI people should do illegal carp in there own state then, if its "God country"

Badger, do you work in Minnesota like all the rest of Hudson? Stealing Minnesota jobs and then living in Wi to avoid higher home costs and giving Wi your property taxes seems like Hudsons forte'

My wife and I lived in MN for many years. Yes, I work in MN (6 figure income). My wife also has a fantastic career in MN. My 400K house in Hudson was built by a MN contractor. We spend a lot of $$ in MN every year.... restaurants, concerts, plays, mall of america etc. All our vehicles and boats have been purchased in MN. I enjoy MN very much!! The midwest can't be beat! wink

Favre is going to enjoy living in Eden Prairie, but he should consider a place in Hudson. LOL

They also have paved roads everywhere and its hard to find a dirt road. I wish Minnesota had roads as nice a Wisc.

    • i believe it is their first year, one of the guys used to work for Ice Castle at the Pine River plant.  They have videos on you tube.  I have seen them on Facebook and you tube, the house looks nice, but it is not something I would buy. 
    • There sure isn't any rhyme or reason to the costs. I think you stand a lot better chance for a good price in the summer though when you can take your house to a job site and they don't have set up and clean up costs involved. 
    • If you use the vinyl kind it coils horribly and if you use the braided types your trebles get stuck in it. I'm not smart enough to do it but I wish some company could figure it out.  
    • So you are saying we all should have voted for a corrupt Clinton over the other candidates? Or should we go back and forth and point out the failings of Democratic states and go round and round? I voted for Johnson, both parties are useless to me but if you want to put on a blindfold and cry about the other party you go right ahead. It's obvious you can't look at any issue without those tinted political glasses on, I'm sure JV would be happy to fire up a tax based argument based on political leanings.
    • Ahhh. Another shiatty weekend for putzbutton.   "We talked about sore winners in the earlier segment. We really didn’t lose. This was sort of a successful failure,” radio host Mark Thompson said on MSNBC Saturday.   "A successful failure"   See !!   There is a silver lining for you libbers...      
    • Sounds reasonable.  We were just under that at a guy up north west of the metro and we had a 16 footer.  Called about 10-15 places and that was the low side of average.  
    • the guy that smoked it is a pro so I would think he did all the precautions needed. I will see him again this summer and ask him.  
    • Didn't catch the game last night but Parise hasn't looked like himself for sure. With some of the younger guys stepping up and Staal it hasn't hurt us nearly as bad as past years but it would sure be nice to see him get healthy. You kind of knew his contract was going to hurt at some point, hopefully it doesn't start this soon.
