The Great North, as many come to know Minnesota, is a state with a rich Nordic history, 18 Fortune 500 Companies, the land of 15,000 Lakes (The license plate says 10,000, but there are many many more), State of Hockey, Prince, Bob Dylan, Walter Mondale, Jesse Ventura and the host of the 2018 Superbowl between the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots slated for this coming Sunday.? Minnesota is also a state that has stayed under the radar for many years, but about to become the center of attention to the world.
