As Minnesotans, we can be very passionate about certain things. I'm sure you can think of one right off the top of your head. So I decided to build a list of Minnesota things that we're so passionate about we'll fight someone over it.

I asked on our Facebook page what Minnesota thing you'd fight someone over, so some of those are on this list. I also came up with some of my own. Let's see if you agree!

10 Things that Minnesotans Will Fight You Over
