Bachelor Power Rankings—Week 8

  It is hometowns ladies and gents. These next two week, between hometowns and fantasy suites are some of the most high pressure times of the games. I mean really, what is worse? Breaking up with a girl after you meet their parents or sleeping with them? Hmm, not sure, either way these contestants are in for a wild ride. This week had many twists and turns, the curse of #2 in the power rankings was lifted, and Lauren is still here. Let’s get into it. Hometown 1: Taxidermy Trip…

Sports Section Episode 22: Commitment Issues [PODCAST]

Minnesota Sports Podcast

Sam returns from exile to confront Chris about his incendiary Josh McDaniels takes and the problems they’ve caused in securing sponsorships. We then run through the Vikings coaching acquisitions and discuss how everything fits together. Also: John DeFilippo. Our thoughts. Was Kevin Stefanski actually blocked from interviewing? Newfangled coaching titles and how Sam hates them. Drew Brees. So you’re telling me there’s a chance. The confusion continues around Andrew Wiggins. FERGIE NATIONAL ANTHEM. The Twins add two pitchers. And more! https://media.blubrry.com/mnsportssection/mnsportssection.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/SportsSectionEpisode22.mp3 As always, thanks for listening!

Let’s talk Twins: Spring Training Is Here

We got about a foot of snow like in the last 12 hours, it seems, yet spring is in the air. Spring camp has started in Florida, and the Twins have acquired some of the pitching help we’ve been asking for the last few years in relievers Fernando Rodney and Addison Reed, as well as starters Michael Pineda, Anibal Sanchez and Jake Odorizzi. I realize two of those three starters likely won’t factor in this season (if Sanchez does at all), but it’s still good to see some transactions happening…

Bachelor Power Rankings—Week 7

  This week was another pretty incredible week in one of the best season of the bachelor in my opinion, but we are not here to read about my opinion. We are here to break down 110% always true facts of who is on top of the bachelor this week. This is proven by the fact that my top two girls from last week are still in the game, wait, no they aren’t. So, I don’t know, maybe I have no idea what I’m talking about anymore, but it’s still…

Bachelor Power Rankings—Week 6

It’s the best time of the year, two-on-one time. This idea, which is practically every man’s fantasy, creates the greatest shit shows in television history. This season’s was no exception, but we will get into that later. This week was headlined by the two-on-one, but there were other very important needle mover things that happened and all in the “city of love,” Paris. Here we go. Date 1: Tourist trip in Paris, Lauren B. Date Grade: B Competitor Grade: B Wow, lots of B’s for Lauren B. Which makes sense…

Bachelor Power Rankings–Week 5

Welcome to the weekly power rankings of your favorite guilty pleasure. As a reference, I use this show completely as entertainment. This show is junk when taking it from any other standpoint. If you truly believe that these people are in this show for love. Nah. Sorry to break your heart, but these guys and girls are in this thing to become at least C list celebrities. Well anyway, let’s get into it. First a little recap of what happened this week. Date 1: Yacht Trip, Chelsea Date Grade: B+…

Sports Section Episode 20: We Acquire Kirk Cousins and LeBron!

Kirk Cousins

Oh yes, that’s right, the boys are back and they have devised a plan not only to reel in prized free agent quarterback Kirk Cousins for the Vikings, but also send LeBron James to the Timberwolves for half of a season. You can thank the remarkable leadership of Chris for that one, though he still hasn’t come around on Teddy Bridgewater. Noah and Sam keep working on him. Also: What’s the Redskins’ angle? Is Cousins the best fit for the Vikings? If (gasp!) somehow he doesn’t end up in Minnesota,…
