Where will the Vikings sail off to now?
I was asked the other day if I thought Mike Zimmer would be back with the Vikings next season. After the game at Green Bay, I must admit to some doubts. I have seen coaches lose control of their players before and it is not a pretty sight.

Crunch time here for the Vikings
Our Minnesota Vikings have arrived at the "How Much Do You Want It?" time of the NFL season. The Vikings let a golden opportunity escape them last Thursday when they lost for the second time this season to the Detroit Lions, a team they used to regularly clobber. For most of the game...

Patience will be Minnesota's watchword in 2017
It would be great if Twins fans were looking forward to the 2017 baseball season with the same hope that carried them through the off-season last year. Unfortunately, as the old country song says, "I tell you, boys, this life is hard and cruel." At this point, it looks like the Minnesota...

Zimmer has charted a great course for his Vikings
It is great to see the Minnesota Vikings marauding their way through the 2016 football season. It is also a little on the incredible side when you consider some of their best pieces are not on the board. The Vikings, popularly referred to these days as "Purple Reign," went into their...

With Teddy gone do Vikes have enough to win?
Are the Minnesota Vikings going to enter the 2016 NFL season packing the talent they need for another playoff season? After the fall of Teddy Bridgewater that is quite a question.

Twins should have sights set on 2017
Five weeks of the 2016 baseball season is still on the books for the Minnesota Twins but the 2017 team is now the priority. It is no longer important what happened to the Twins this season. The past is the past and regrets, like striking out with the bases loaded or failing to protect...

Kepler playing well enough to earn AL Rookie of the Year honors
Minnesota outfielder Max Kepler has to be considered a strong contender at this point for 2016's American League Rookie of the Year award. Kepler, who was born in that great baseball city of Berlin, Germany in 1993, has proven to be quite adept at parking baseballs where outfielders...

Athletics often a big help for schools, enrollments
How much athletic participation does your school have? Worlds will not collide if you do not happen to know the answer but the question for schools might be a bigger one than you think. Dave Retzlaff was the head men's basketball coach and athletic director at what is now called...

Green was quite a shock
It does not seem to be that long ago the Vikings named a Stanford football coach to be their top man. Dennis Green, who died last Friday of a heart attack at the age of 67, was quite an eye opener when he signed on to replace Jerry Burns in 1992. Until Green came along, every Minnesota...

Sure Vikes look good on paper, but so do some others

Surging Twins doing more by doing less

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...
