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.

Favre is coming off a solid season which saw him throw for 4,200 yards and 33 touchdowns.

Wadena-Deer Creek boys' hockey coach Dan Savoie returned from a trip to Finland to find his team's hockey facility destroyed by a June 17 tornado. Tuesday morning, June 29, Savoie had a group of volunteers helping him sift through the debris of the Wadena Area Community Center for any useful equipment the tornado did not carry away. The question of whether or not the Wolverines will have a hockey program this year has been decided in Savoie's mind. "We're going to pick up the pieces like everyone else," Savoie said.
