We arrived in Minneapolis in time for some kind of bizarre Minnesota Christian ceremony (no, not my brother's wedding, c-mon!) -- the blessing of the animals. Scores of churches this day had signs calling out to parishioners to bring their pets to church to be blessed. Next thing you know they'll all get together to elect a psychotic, war-mongering, blueblood son of a bitch for president and declare war against Iraq.
Wait...anyhow, an uneventful day in MN. We went to the rehearsal dinner at the best man's house, ate some BBQ, then headed to a funky bar in St. Paul. Then I stayed up until 4 am watching poker on ESPN to see who won the main event in the Poker World Series of 2007.
Good thing we don't have cable at home.
