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…

15 Things To Do Now That The Vikings Lost

If you are like me, you have finally started to get over the depression of the Vikings, once again, crushing every part of our hearts, and reality has started to set in. So, the real question is, what do we do now? I mean for the last five months, 90% of my free time has consisted of now pointless information about how the Vikings defense is the greatest thing ever. SPOILER ALERT. Big Dick Nick showed up in a big way. Well here is the no doubt, 100% best list…

Minnesota Wild Bring Magic of Their Own on Hockey Day In Minnesota

A 5-2 Minnesota Wild win over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Hockey Day in Minnesota was a perfect time to remember I love hockey, and this morning was a good day to write hockey. I grew up in Minnesota and lived here for half of my years on this planet. I wanted to play for Herb Brooks’ Gophers when I was a kid; as an adult, I still cry at Miracle’s “Who do you play for?”  I hate Norm Green to this day for taking the NHL team with the…

Screw Superstitions

Harrison Smith

So in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back, Leia turns to a near carbonite Han and says “I love you.” And in all his eternal glory Han Solo responds “I know.” What a son of a bitch. He won. The dude was going to be turned into a literal rock, and he’s like, “I’m good, lemme win this shit.” On Sunday, January 14th, year of our lord two thousand eighteen, Messers Keenum and Diggs said that they’re tired of having luck go the other way, so Keenum called up the…

A Look At The NFC and AFC Championships

All we gotta do is get there. Bring it home. For the first time in history, become a Super Bowl team at our home stadium. Once we get there, anything can happen. If the Titans can beat the Chiefs and the Jaguars can beat the Steelers, the Vikings can beat the Patriots at home and become the best football team on the planet to put a cap on what would be the greatest sports season in Minnesota history. It should be easy right? Getting there? The Purple and Gold are…

Stars Still Shine In Minnesota’s Wild Jersey Evolution

Minnesotans love their hockey. And they love their hockey teams. Plural.   The Wild have been in business since 2000. But from 1967-93, the North Stars were Minnesota’s NHL entry. When the squads met in the playoffs for the first time, in 2016, Wild fans were still given to chants of “Norm sucks” — aimed at the North Stars’ owner, Norm Green, who took them to Texas to become the Dallas Stars.   To this day, the Wild carry a nod to their predecessors in the form of the North…

Jon Gruden Was Right

Gruden

  The story of Case Keenum has been hammered into the heads of NFL fans since the time that he has started to have success with our Minnesota Vikings. But, it is worth another rundown. High School standout that only got one Division 1 offer→At the University of Houston. Keenum goes on to break about every record in the college books→Goes undrafted→Served in back-up roles to the Texans, Rams, the Texans again, and the Rams again for a back-up/starting role→Vikings sign him and the rest is history. Now after a…
