Brewers can hope to continue last year’s trend

  I recently took a look at an old column of mine on my laptop. Normally, this is a haunting occurrence, as I usually see my column where I predicted the Vikings were going to run all over the Green Bay Packers last November. (NOTE: The Packers won 34-0, but now that Favre is gone […]

Vikings fan impressed by Favre

I know what you’re thinking. I’m going to absolutely tear into Brett Favre. I’m going to bring up his 288 career interceptions.   You think I’m going to mention that he popped painkillers like they were M & M’s.   You think that I’m going to mention how Favre was so much of an arrogant […]

ESPN brings disappointment to long-time viewer, columnist

Just like many of you, I wake up and wonder just where the hell I am. Then I stumble into the shower and wake up, brush my teeth and all of that stuff. Then I promptly turn on ESPN to watch Sportscenter.    Normally, I don’t have a problem with it, but this morning something […]

UWRF, CSS clash in rematch

The UW-River Falls Falcons men’s hockey team has had a successful season so far. Last Friday night, the Falcons defeated the Stout Blue Devils 5-3. In that game where the Falcons looked like a completely different team than the one that hosted the St. Norbert Green Knights a week prior. The Falcons were aggressive. They […]

Twins fan ready for season to start

Some people have a different interpretation of what paradise is. For Tony Romo, it’s hanging out with a horrible singer turned horrible actress in Mexico. For Johan Santana, it’s swimming in his new found vault full of money a la Scrooge McDuck. For Brett Favre, it’s going to a tractor pull in Mississippi. For me? […]

Important match-up for men’s hockey team

As many of you know, the UWRF men’s hockey team has been having a hard time recently.  The Falcons were been playing good hockey for most of the season, as they were cruising to a 14-2-3 record and sat just two points behind St. Norbert for the NCHA lead. What a difference three games make. […]

Orton ready to 'Party Like a Rockstar' at the Dome

I was jumping on the Internet and there was a headline that grabbed my attention on MSN.com.  It was a headline that gave the Bears a huge blow in their credibility and really was a head scratcher. A 5-year-old descendant of Davey Crockett killed a bear. The child was a 10th generation grandchild of Davey […]

Christmas here early for fan

This has to be my favorite time of the year. HOLIDAY time in the form of the major league baseball off-season. For some fans such as the Yankees, Red Sox, Cubs, and Tigers, it’s a very happy time for them as they splurge tons of money into single players. Then, there’s the rest of major […]

Lack of focus shows on ice

“I play when I want to play.” Many sports fans know these words; New England Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss made them famous during an interview. The words that made Moss famous seem to have meaning today right here in River Falls. This may apply to the Falcon men’s hockey team through their first nine […]

Border battle brings out the worst in columnists

It was Monday afternoon, about 4 p.m. As soon as you walked into the office, you could tell something wasn’t right. There he was, the usually happy-go-lucky columnist lying on the couch, downtrodden.
