Pheasants still part of Minnesota hunting tradition 100 years later
That gaudy rascal of the grasslands is celebrating an important anniversary this year. It was 100 years ago that the ring-necked pheasant was successfully introduced in Minnesota. I was on a farm in southern Otter Tail County last week enjoying the last rays of daylight when a rooster...

Is it just the players or is it something else?
Why are the Minnesota Twins so terrible this season? After playing so well last season it has not made any sense they are back to playing at a minor league level. The Twins are nursing one of baseball's worst records with two months of the season gone. Many fans are beyond asking...

Molitor has to find way to rally Twins in May
However Paul Molitor and his coaches go about it, their biggest job in May will be putting the Twins on the winning track. As the first month of the season ended last Saturday, the Twins had a record of 7-17 They were 9.5 games back in the American League Central and resting uncomfortably...

Will Vikes take Haeg in 2016 college draft?
It is a good bet the Minnesota Vikings will be shopping for some better blocking this spring. After all, Teddy Bridgewater was sacked 44 times during the regular season and went down three times in the divisional playoff loss to Seattle. So perhaps what the Vikings could use is a...

Best is yet to come if Vikes make the right moves
Mike Zimmer is to be congratulated for the rugged defense he has built. When Zimmer took over in 2014 the Minnesota Vikings had a defense that ranked dead last in the NFL. This year, as they built a 11-5 record, the Vikes had the fifth-ranked defensive unit in the NFL. Since 2013...

What if we could not hunt?
A nephew of mine posed a question to me last week that had a barb attached to it. Knowing I liked to hunt he asked me what hunters do if some cataclysm occurred and suddenly there was nothing to hunt? It was a hypothetical question posed by a huge fan of the Star Wars saga who...

Zimmer has Vikings in first halfway through the season
It has been interesting to follow the mindset of Minnesota head coach Mike Zimmer. After 19 years as an assistant coach in the NFL, Zimmer was more than ready to accept when the Vikings asked him to replace Leslie Frazier. It was a practical union - the Vikings needed a defense...

Mauer, Twins only doing well in spurts
Seeing Joe Mauer strike out has always been a surprise to me because he has such a beautiful swing. I saw him fan twice in last Sunday's 4-1 win over Cleveland. He reached base one time when he drew a walk but he did not score or drive in any runs. It was a rather dismal performance...

Coaching not a featherbed but it has some rewards
I remember sitting down with a veteran high school football coach one time before the season and asking him how he felt his team would do in the season ahead. "We will be 4-4," he said. He went on to tell me the games his team would win and those they would lose in a very matter-of-fact...

Are these Twins good, bad or somewhere in between?
A big league baseball season can resemble a roller coaster ride with all of its ups and downs. After sputtering in April, then climbing the American League Central standings with an incredibly solid May, the Twins have been plunging so far in June. Hey baby, it is a long, long...

Zimmer hunting for a Super Bowl defense
From the looks of the latest NFL college football draft, we can expect Minnesota's defense to be even more impressive this season. Minnesota head coach Mike Zimmer inherited a leaky defense from Leslie Frazier in 2014. The 2013 Vikings had defense that was superb at preventing...

Do not let the first round hype fool you
Defensive end Jadeveon Clowney was the first player selected in the NFL's 2014 college football draft. Enough drool was spilled over this guy by the hype masters to fill an Olympic-sized swimming pool before the draft. You just had to believe the South Carolina pass rushing terror...

Hunter has the look of a future big league skipper
It’s in the cards that Torii Hunter is going to make a fine baseball manager when his playing days are over. He is a fan favorite, a clubhouse favorite and he picks his fights well - even if he does not always win them. Hunter showed us some of the same understanding former...
