"Minnesota nice" Kevin Love jersey burning is pretty funny [VIDEO]

KLoveNotImpressed.jpg
K-Love is a beast, but it's time for a change of scenery.
Cleveland fans were pissed as hell when LeBron took his talents to South Beach in 2010 and burned his jerseys on the streets to show it.

Sure, Kevin Love ain't no Bron. But as news broke last week that he's on his way out of town, you'd expect there to be some First Avenue angst about the second-best player in Timberwolves history leaving Minneapolis, wouldn't you?

Raising awarness about the plight of local moms...
A reader named Michael got in touch and sent us video he shot of that road sign on St. Paul's Shepard Road that was messed with last week to read... well, you can see it at the top of this page.

Michael was so shocked to see the message about local moms and their needs as he drove along that he pulled off and shot a few seconds of footage, then set the clip to Frank Sinatra's "My Way."

Minneapolis Police Department terrorism video is unintentionally hilarious

terroristvideobanner2.jpg
A Minneapolis cop who looks to be Anderson Cooper reports a suspicious bag in the skyway.
A couple days ago, the Minneapolis Police Department released a video entitled, "How you can recognize the 8 indicators leading up to acts of crime and terrorism." The clip was produced using federal dollars and the help of a nonprofit called the Counterterrorism Education Learning Lab (CELL).

As the name indicates, the video, narrated by Vikings receiver Greg Jennings and WCCO TV news anchor Amelia Santaniello, is meant to provide easily digestible information about terrorism prevention for everyday Minneapolitans in an at least somewhat watchable format. And while its release the week before thousands of out-of-towners arrive in town for the MLB All-Star Game might seem like more than a coincidence, MPD spokesman Scott Seroka says it mostly is.

Tim Post's "Date Night" spoof is hilarious [VIDEO]

postparody.jpg
At right, a couple scenes from Post's parody of the "Uptown bro."
When MPR reporter Tim Post saw Seth Nelson's "Date Night" video, he thought to himself about "just how opposite most peoples' lives are from an Uptown condo life."

"I live in the Como Park neighborhood, which is kinda the anti-Uptown," Post tells us. "You know, messy with dishes in the sink, and I thought, most of us, if we left a girlfriend or wife waiting at the bar while we took a shower and made a drink and and watched the sunset, the reaction wouldn't be the same as what we saw in the Uptown bro video."

The Minnesota State Patrol is looking for a semi driver who nearly smashed a little girl boarding a school bus near Paynesville on May 30.

Jesse "The Body" Ventura played key role in decline of Minnesota wrestling [VIDEOS]

jessepose.jpg
Before he became governor, Jesse "The Body" was a notorious heel. (Arguably he hasn't changed much.)
This week's cover feature about legendary wrestling journalist Wade Keller includes a good bit of discussion about the storied history of pro wrestling in the Twin Cities.

In the early 1980s, the Minneapolis-based American Wrestling Association was arguably the world's number-one wrestling promotion, and two of its biggest stars were Jesse "The Body" Ventura and Hulk Hogan.

Gardy, Twins pull funny prank on Mike Pelfrey [VIDEO]

PelfreyRib.JPG
If the baseball thing doesn't work out, it doesn't appear Pelfrey has a future as a motivational speaker.
The Twins aren't expected to be very good on the field this year, but hey, at least they've got good locker room chemistry!

Or so it appears judging by the way Gardy and a group of players, led by closer Glen Perkins, pranked starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey.
