I’m a better Minnesotan than you are

We’re watching Olympic curling at the walleye restaurant. How can I make this night even more Minnesotan?

The Snoopy Bunker at Highland National Golf Course

There’s a golf course here in St. Paul, Minnesota, that has a bunker shaped like Snoopy to honor Charles M. Schulz, the creator of the Peanuts comic strip and cartoon and a native of St. Paul.

I happened upon the course on one of my recent walks, so I tried to find that bunker. It was easy to spot, but taking photos from the ground really isn’t the best way to see Snoopy.

Thankfully, Golf Digest has a better view. And Google Maps even shows Snoopy’s bunker when you take a look at the course:

You know what? I could have climbed a tree to get a better shot, but I was too afraid of getting yelled at by some pasty dude wearing spiky shoes.

Logos. Branding, not knowledge.

I don’t follow baseball. The Nationals. When did Walgreen’s start a franchise?
