Sweden’s Sons is made up of Eric Anderson (Eau Claire, WI) and Paul Mullen (River Falls, WI). Eric and Paul get to play about two or three times a year as Sweden’s Sons. In addition, both players promote the game in their communities. Eric is 100% Swedish. Paul is 50% Swedish.
Their first tournament together was the 2010 Dallas, WI Oktoberfest Tournament. Since then, they have teamed up numerous times. When the team started, Paul lived in Chippewa Falls, WI. Due to distance, the only time they get to play kubb together is at a tournament.
Sweden’s Sons play under the Berserker Kubb flag. Berserker Kubb is a stateless nation of fearless kubb ambassadors willing to drop anything in order to promote kubb or slay a king on behalf of our fellow warriors. Sweden’s Sons team nickname is The Einherjar. We believe kubb unites people and creates peace on Earth. We feel lucky to have met so many people since 2007 through kubb. We also believe that no other team claps more for their opponents than we do. You can view our Facebook page.
Paul’s practice regimen: None. Practice is for the weak. Put them up and let them fall.
Eric’s practice regimen: Non-stop. He often wakes in the middle of the night with an idea for a new 8-meter throw or way to drill kubbs.
Eric and Paul have been playing in tournaments since 2007, when Paul played in the first U.S. National Kubb Championship. Eric’s first tournament as a player was at the UM-Duluth 2008. Paul is one of three players that have played in every U.S. Championship since 2007. When not playing together, they have been found partnering up on other teams. Paul on his husband/wife team (Uber Kubbers) and with Amateur Hour. Eric on a team with his dad (Crooked Lake Trolls), wife (Kanelbullarna), Josh Miller (Hilltoppers), and with the 2010 U.S. Champions The Ringers in Madison 2012.
Eric organizes the U.S. National Kubb Championship, Rockford (IL) Swedish Historical Society Tournament, and the Dallas, WI Oktoberfest Tournament. He also does his best with Kubbnation Magazine. Eric’s big passion is to introduce the game to as many kids as possible in Eau Claire and the surrounding area through schools, clinics, organizations, and more, and has a goal to have the water tower in Eau Claire say Kubb Capital of North America. www.wisconsinkubb.com
