Introduction

Welcome to my blog, Yes just what the Internet needs another blog. The goal of this blog is to inform, and entertain the reader about sports, from a super fans point of view.  I am a 29 year old male born and raised in the state of Minnesota. I will be writing mostly about Minnesota sports from a Minnesotan perspective. I am a sports history buff as well, so some of my posts will have a definite historical bent and context. This site will also have national sports topics, and hopefully a podcast as well. The goal of this blog is to entertain my friends and myself.

I have been reading and watching sports from the age of three years old. The majority of my first memories are sports related. Some of the memories include; Hulk Hogan slamming Andre the Giant at WrestleMania 3, the Twins winning the World Series in 1987 win I was four, and watching my beloved Minnesota North Stars on pay-per-view.

This blog will undoubtedly be hockey centric, since this is my favorite of all sports, but I also follow the NFL, NBA, and the MLB religiously. If you are looking for college football posts you have come to the wrong place. There will definitely be a few snide posts about Coach Kill's squad, but I find any sport that does not have a true champion a waste of time. NASCAR and the WNBA will never be talked about, unless they are needed for a joke. In fact, this is the last time I plan to seriously mention either of these two "sports" on this blog.

Some of my favorite current sports personalities include; Adrian Peterson, Randy Moss, Marian Gaborik, Mikko Koivu, Mikael Granlund, Alexander Ovechkin, Claude Giroux ,Justin Morneau, Denard Span, Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, Steve Nash, Kevin Durant, and whoever is currently excelling on one of my fantasy teams. Some of my favorite old school sports personalities include; Ty Cobb, (I once made my parents drive me 3 hours to his museum in Royston, Georgia,while on a family vacation in South Carolina), Dino Ciccarelli( I remember being devastated, at the age of five when he was traded to the Capitals for Mike Gartner), Larry Bird, Wayne Gretzky, Kirby Puckett(game six), Pavel Bure, Neal Broten, Reggie Miller, Jacques Lemaire, Herb Brooks, the 1980 Olympic ice hockey team and Rich Gannon.

My least favorite current sports figures/entities include; ESPN, Joe Mauer, The Minnesota Wild announce team(Dan Terhaar and Mike Greenlay), Brett Farve, Brad Childress, the Miami Heat, any NHL team in a warm weather city, Derek Jeter, A-Rod, Mark Teixeira, Sidney Crosby, Raffi Torres, Kenny Mayne, Stuart Scott, Joe Buck, Tim McCarver, Mark Schlereth, Bill Plaschke, Zygi Wilf and every Green Bay Packer.

People I loved to hate back in the day include; Red McCombs, Denny Green, Denis Savard, Stu Grimson, Dirk Graham, Chris Chelios, Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire, Jose Canseco, John Rocker, Jack Buck, Tim McCarver, and every Green Bay Packer.

In conclusion, I hope to entertain, inform, and impress whoever happens to stumble upon this blog.

  3. I was wondering what your thoughts were about the race for the cup in NASCAR. Do you think the point system works? And who's the "dark horse" this year? I wait eagerly for your response.

  4. HAha. So far NASCAR has been pretty boring. No big crashes, no one has died, kind of lame. The dark horse this year is some hick from Kentucky/Alabama who went to finishing school to learn left from right. This separates him from most NASCAR prospects. Everyone knows Dale JR is going to win the cup just like every year
