Wolves Year is Winding Down

Steven Jorgenson I know the record is better – sitting at 40-41 as of today so the Wolves will finish right around .500 for the season.  The record is better than last year but now that they are 10 years removed from the last playoff run it really doesn’t matter much – does it?   […]

What a Great Week to be a Sports Fan!

It may not seem like spring here on the frozen tundra but the calendar doesn’t lie.  The Twins have started playing baseball – albeit not very well to the surprise of no one. The Gopher Men’s Basketball Team won the NIT Championship in New York – I know in the grand scheme of things it […]

November 25, 2013 0 Comments

After week two of the 213 NFL season, the Vikings find themselves 0-2. While this is not surprising, it is still okay to feel disappointed. Losing on the road in the very tough NFC North is nothing to be ashamed of, but the Vikes had a chance to win both games. But, now that those […]

March 11, 2013: “If I were on the committee” Knowing what I know now if I were on the NCAA Tourney Selection Committee I would vote NO on the Gophers bid to play in the tourney this year.  I know we were all very happy after they upset number one Indiana a couple of weeks […]
