Lone Survivor

Holy cow…”Lone Survivor” is a definite must-see movie. It is non-stop action…and you run through the entire gamut of emotions. How they filmed some of those scenes still blows my mind…like the mountain scenes? Crazy.

It’s definitive proof that I would have made the worst Navy SEAL ever. I doubt I even survive the helicopter ride. What? Is that gunfire? Forget that…I quit. What? I’m going to have to sleep outside? Screw that!

As the credits rolled…half of the theater started a slow clap…the other half just sat silently…just in awe of what they had seen.

Paul Molitor

Yesterday, as part of the Minnesota Twins Caravan that was making its way across Iowa, the Twins stopped by the station. Part of the Caravan included Hall of Famer Paul Molitor…#9 on baseball’s all-time hit leaders. It was crazy cool meeting him…
