Dear Diary: Welcome to the Interweb

This blog is dedicated to you, Minnesota sports fans. From homers to hecklers, you’ve lived through the occasional joys, the devastating heartbreaks, and all the expected mediocrity in between. Yet you’ve persevered. Hell, you’ve ridden that bandwagon like a bucking bronco. So have I. Because in Minnesota, there’s always next year.

My promise to you: first-rate analysis served up cold with a side of second-rate humor. It’s unfiltered spin from a washed-up athlete, lurking in the cheap seats with a Mac and a chip on his shoulder. It’s big opinions, with little regard for conventional thinking. I’ll hold underachievers accountable, slap overachievers on the back, and challenge you to experience sports from a disillusioned point of view. My hopes are that somewhere within that broad spectrum, you can find your sweet spot and we can connect. If not? Hey, it’s Minnesota. There’s always next year.


  1. great angle onf gerhart.
    worst case scenario brett ends up not playing this year who do we go after. mcnabb lets say he is out of the picture, just to get another qbs name in the mix. i like troy smith, who do you want?

  2. I'd bet the farm that Brett will be back. That being said, if the unthinkable happens... Well, you're not going to like it, but it would have to be T-Jax (unless Sage beats him out in camp this year). Troy Smith has re-signed, and I don't think he's an upgrade to T-Jax or Sage anyways. The only FA option out there that would even mildly interest me would be Jeff Garcia, and I don't know if he's got anything left.
