Forget the Vikings, the Twins are the ones to watch
The return of Brett Favre is supposed to have Minnesota fans frothing at the mouth but the Mississippi Marvel has not played enough football this year to regain his 2009 form. Let's give Mr. Fantastic until January to have his team looking like a Super Bowl contender. The Twins...

Now we're ready for some football
Now that the 2010 Minnesota Vikings are finally in the same state perhaps we can look forward to some football. Two big pieces tumbled into Minnesota recently as Brett Favre and Percy Harvin arrived in camp. Favre has earned the ire of a lot of Minnesota fans -- and even more fair...

Is this the Vikings' year?
If you are the Minnesota Vikings and the Super Bowl eluded you by a field goal last year you have to feel like this could be your year. All it will take is healthy and productive Brett Favre, a few less fumbles by Adrian Peterson, another big year from Minnesota receivers Sidney...

Foxy Favre has unfinished business
Brett Favre has made it pretty clear that he enjoys being foxy just as much as he enjoys throwing touchdown passes. Now we are supposed to believe that Favre's bum ankle is going to prevent him from playing football this fall. You might be closer to the truth if you suspect that...

Hunker down for another nail-biter
So here we are in the major league club's historic 50th season playing before sellout and near-sellout crowds at fantastic Target Field. Joe Mauer has signed a long-term contract and the Twins have the biggest payroll in the history of the franchise. Detroit and Chicago are both legitimate...

Cheaper stadium would have been more palatable
Cash-strapped Minnesota may not have the money to build the Vikings a new football stadium but here is something you can take to the bank -- the popular NFL team is not going to sign a 40-year lease on Mall of America Field. If the financial burden is placed where it should be,...

Stood up by toms, nature gives grand substitute
One of the greatest sounds to a turkey hunter is a tom gobbling up a storm. It rates in the same class of thrill as a flock of bluebills screaming into the decoy set. That is the kind of thrill I was after a couple weeks back when I headed into the wood with an owl call. It had been...

2010: The year we sniff grass
Fresh-cut green grass, wooden seats, wind, sunshine, blue skies and jet noise -- it's all so nostalgic, so Star-Spangled, so right. Target Field is debuting this year with the luxury boxes, the $110 Championship Club seating for season ticket holders and, oh yes, the present-day...

Planting and planning for the future
You have to like the month of April. Mother Earth has tipped just enough on its axis so that our snow has disappeared, those below zero winds are behind us and nature's life cycle is starting again. It is time to do some planting. For the last 10 years I have been planting trees...

Twins suffer a setback before they even start
It looks like a bit of rain has fallen on the Minnesota Twins even before their 2010 opener at Target Field. Joe Nathan, one of the best relievers to ever pitch for the Twins, has a muscle tear in his right elbow and the All-Star closer is in for a long, tough ordeal -- whether he...

Country plays and calling 'cayutes'
We all meet unforgettable people in our lives. One of mine is my Grandma Hulda. Looking back I would have to say that what she embraced was the joy of living. A small town girl from the prairies of South Dakota, she knew hard work and hard times but she had a lot of "pep" and she...

Reading about the father who was arrested for punching a youth basketball commissioner at a sixth grade basketball tournament in Burnsville last weekend is a good wake-up call at this time of the year. We are in the time of the winter season when tournaments are under way and there...

Twins have already proven it only takes a few
As the Twins have demonstrated in the past it often only takes 2-3 new guys to make a trip to the World Series. Having thrilled their fans with back-to-back runs at the playoffs, the Twins are smart enough to know that they are close, very close, to what they accomplished in 1987...

Vikings beat Vikings in New Orleans
The clarity of hindsight tells us that the Minnesota Vikings choked themselves to death in the NFC Championship game. The Super Bowl-bound New Orleans Saints did not beat the Vikings, the Vikings beat themselves. Brett Favre, who has a great future ahead of him as a tackling dummy...
