Minnie Metzger never misses an episode of "American Idol" or "Dancing With the Stars."

"They're really competing," she said of her reasons for favoring those shows.


She's also an avid Twins and Vikings fan, and catches their games on TV whenever she can.

She plays whist every Thursday afternoon with her friends, and she and her daughter Lois enjoy a game of bridge together on the computer whenever they get the chance.
