MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Seven days, three major league stadiums in the Midwest. It may sound like a dream trip for any baseball fan. Your vote could help one Twin Cities couple hit the road.

Full disclosure, we work with Peter Nelson, also known as “Petey.” He controls the crews at WCCO-TV on the assignment desk. But, it’s his love of the Twins that you might say controls his life.

He met his match when he met Nicole Lind, also known as “Coley.”

“It wasn’t until I met Peter I found out how much he hates the White Sox I just want to throw it in his face,” Lind said.

Beyond baseball, the two share a passion for video production.

“Throw in baseball, take out the White Sox and it’s a perfect match,” Nelson said.

Their latest project has them competing for a week-long trip with stops at three games, including two Twins’ games, that will fall on a special week. It will be their one-year anniversary. Their movie making won’t end if they hit the road. Every day they have to make new material to compete for the grand prize.

“It’s nice because the people who vote for us in the beginning get to follow us the whole way,” Lind said.

So, they are asking for your vote, and so are we so Petey will get back to work.

If they win, Coley has promised Petey she’ll become a Twins fan and they’ll first watch a game at Target Field, then drive to Chicago to see the Cubs play and finally to Cleveland.

    Better yet vote for a nice family. The Travelin’ Whitneys. We seriously can not afford a vacation otherwise. No vacation last year either. Help us out.

    I remember our family vacations… Everyone at each other’s throats, trips cut short, whiny kids… No family deserves that. I’ll save the Travelin’ Whitneys the trouble by not voting for them. You’ll thank me later;)

      hear, hear!!

    2. Traveln' Whitneys says:

      I assure you our family vacations will not be like that. If we go on this trip or any other trip, we are a very loving family and seeing the world only bring us closer. I don’t want to bad mouth this couple, but its plain economics. I really think it is sad that people have the attitude that kids make it so your life is over. The Family in a traditional sense is dying as it is. I will show you through video that a trip like this can be a learning, growing, bonding experience.
