    Bellied up at a local establishment a few months back, a co-worker and I closed the bar discussing a top 10 list.

    Who are your 10 favorite Minnesota sports icons?....

    #4 Cris Carter

    #5 John Randle

    #6 Mariak Gaborik IF he extends his contract, and continues his career with the Wild

    #7 Derek Boogaard lol hahha..just go to hockeyfights.com and check out what he did to colton gillies, brian mcgrattan, and todd fedoruk

    Take Moss and Garnett off the list...they are now classified as traitors.

    CRIS (not Chris) Carter gets to stay...since his short stint on the Dolphins only amounted to him taking their money for nothing.
    BANNED OR DEAD...I'LL TAKE EITHER ONE
