1 — Vikings. Game day. Gotta have it. Arizona Cardinals in town. Larry Fitz the Beast. “The Vikings Winless but OK?” by the Star Tribune.
2 — Vikings. Ponder. Today will be telling as to when the Ponder era starts. “Ponder and team seem patient, even when fans aren’t“. I would like to see Ponder relieve McNabb in the 4th quarter today.
3 — Vikings. 5 Keys to the Game by the Pioneer Press.
4 — Lynx. WNBA-champion Lynx have bright future by Pioneer Press. Basically, team is only going to lose Candice Wiggins to free agency and Taj McWilliams-Franklin will likely retire as a champion.
5 — Wild. A win on opening night. 4 goals. “Wild break out their new attack” by Tom Powers of the Pioneer Press.
6 — Gophers. “Gophers lose second straight to open Big Ten” by Minnesota Daily. This game was not pretty. Penalties, missed assignments, terrible coaching (how about the all out blitz vs Purdue and they hit a screen pass for a big touchdown?). Have they hit rock bottom yet?
7 — Al Davis. Raiders Owner Al Davis passed away. ESPN has a great blog series of posts, history, quotes from Al and others, etc. Davis led a very interesting life. Best one was the He Did it His Way blog. Check it out.
8 — MLB Playoffs. Rangers take Game 1 of ALCS. The rain took out Verlander. Rangers played very well.
9 — Video of the Day. How ’bout some Jared Allen highlights to get us going today? Allen gets a sack today and he has a sack in 6 straight games, and at his current rate, he has a chance for 100 sacks in his career in the last game of the season.
