The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Standing in

Eric McErlain lived near Bloomington's old Metropolitan Stadium for six months, which you'd think (if you were a New Yorker of a certain political bent, anyway) would be enough to qualify him to be a Senator himself. But Mr. McErlain has no such lofty ambitions. Instead, he's offering to Governor Ventura a list of Minnesotans who might serve as the state's junior Senator while the Mondale/Coleman race is being fought over in the courts. Who's on the list?

  • Prince Rogers Nelson
  • Ex-Replacements front man, Paul Westerberg
  • A rotating troika consisting of the founding members of Husker Du
  • Kent Hrbek (Kirby Puckett being compromised at the moment)
  • Jerry Lundegaard (as played by William H. Macy in Fargo)
  • John Madden
  • Winona Ryder
  • Kevin Sorbo (of Hercules TV fame)
  • Bob Dylan

You know, this could work.
