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...

Do Twins have their pitching problem licked?
As their pitching goes, so go the Minnesota Twins in 2015, so what kind of strategy do rookie manager Paul Molitor and rookie pitching coach Neil Allen have in mind? When Ron Gardenhire was managing the Twins he once admitted he did not know that much about handling a pitching...

Dayton's plan could provide a war over water
Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton wants to see 50 feet of buffer strip protecting all state waters in the future. It is an idea many sportsmen are likely to support and many farmers are likely to oppose. Dayton came out with his proposal at a Department of Natural Resources roundtable...

Be it ever so humble....
Torii Hunter is shagging fly balls in Fort Myers, Kevin Garnett is back shooting buckets with the Timberwolves and it looks like even Adrian Peterson has found some legal forgiveness for his sins. Maybe Thomas Wolfe was wrong, maybe you can go home again? With the money Hunter,...

Can Molitor's management turn Twins around this season?
Paul Molitor may be turn out to be the most interesting guy the Minnesota Twins put in the ballpark this season. They say that no one buys a ticket to watch a manager but Molitor is going to rate some scrutiny. Baseball fans will remember him as a great player, but what sort...

Ex-Viking Williams will finally get his shot Sunday
Let's give Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks a lot of credit for a giving Kevin Williams a chance to add a Super Bowl appearance to his career. Carroll, who was a defensive assistant for five years with the Vikes a long time back and almost became their head coach in 1992,...

Vikings hoping Bridgewater is a great one
Everyone knows the Minnesota Vikings want to get it right this time. Teddy Bridgewater is our fledgling quarterback this season and the Vikes are counting on him to take them to the Super Bowl in the years ahead. Just a few seasons ago the Vikes were counting on Christian...

Football will do the talking from now on for Vikes
The blather of the off-season is over and the Minnesota Vikings have returned to Mankato like a flock of purple swallows. Mike Zimmer and his staff have a cartload of players to make a team from and it is crucial that they succeed. They also have a lot of bugaboos to run off. The...

So can the Twins do it this year or not?
There was a lot of flapping in the trees from Minnesota commentators about the second half of the season as the Twins wrapped up their series with Colorado July 13. It sounded like the main reason the Twins were 10.5 games out of first and sitting in the AL Central cellar was...

Fading Twins have to avoid July swoon
When the Minnesota Twins reached the midway point of their 2014 season they found themselves with just two more victories than they had at the same point in 2013 — and a substantial nine games out of first place in the AL Central. It is true that the Twins are showing more...

What type of crisis are Minnesota deer hunters facing?
It would be interesting to know if the Department of Natural Resources really believe Minnesota deer hunters have anything to bellyache about. The DNR has "listening sessions" set up to hear the gripes of disgruntled hunters and yet they have come out as opposing a late winter effort...

Vikings chopping but so far chips are small
It makes you wonder what the Minnesota Vikings have in mind by signing contracts with Matt Cassel, Everson Griffen and Jasper Brinkley. The team was 5-10-1 last year, gave up the most points in the NFL and fired their head coach. Some would say that indicated the need for some major...
