There's no reason we should leave the border battles to USD, SDSU, UND, and NDSU. How about we sling a little sausage over the border and show Minnesota our wiener?

After having the all Beef Ball Park Franks from Renner Corner Meats I'm convinced that our neighbors in Minnesota just don't cut the mustard.

Nothing like a bag of jerky to pass around the car.
