Dunkin’ Deuces :: 10/8 Edition

Your 10 morning links for October, 8th.

 

1 — Los Lynx.  The Lynx won 73-67 last night to win the WNBA Title.  A clean sweep.  Congratulations!  The first title brought to Minnesota since 1991, and the first basketball title since 1951.  Let’s hope the Lynx turn our LoserVille USA into TitleTown USA.  Here is a plethora of links on the Lynx:

2 — Gopher Football.  “Gophers look to bounce back Saturday at Purdue”.  Can the Gophers seem their season?  We have our picks in the Cage.

3 — Minnesota Vikings.  “Keys to the Game“.  Great video segment by the voice of the Vikings, Paul Allen, and Vikings.com writer Mike Wobschall.

4 — Minnesota Wild.  “Wild have options from a physical standpoint” from Sports Illustrated.  Wild are expected to have a rebuilding year this year.

5 — MLB Playoffs.  Fantastic playoffs as usual in MLB.  “Cardinals, Brewers win playoff thrillers“.  The Cardinals upset was huge, so was the Tigers.  Great baseball going on.

6 —  Luck.  Rick Reilly “on the Andrew Luck sweepstakes“.   Vikings have 5 games left all year versus teams with winning records.  Doesn’t look good in the Suck for Luck Race.

7 — High School Football.  Friday Night Roundup from MN Football Hub.

8 — Stat of the Day.  From Jayson Stark of ESPN, talking about the amazing performance of the St Louis Cardinal’s Chris Carpenter in the 1-0 upset victory over the Phillies:

This was the 340th start of Carpenter’s tremendous career, counting the postseason. But it was his FIRST 1-0 shutout.

9 — Video of the Day.  Lynx win WNBA Championship
