Thankful for writing, and for those that believe in me
It's Thanksgiving. So, insert the obligatory comments about how quickly this fall has come and gone, how it has already felt like winter outside for a month and my annoyance with Christmas-everything starting in mid-October. I also know that when life (read...

Homers and pitching the name of this World Series
Some people have compared this year's World Series to the 1991 seven-game classic between the Atlanta Braves and Minnesota Twins. It's hard for me to make a true comparison, since I don't recall the '91 Series, but the Minnesotan in me says that is still be...

It was all about that 1st inning in Wild Card loss for the Twins
"The Twins just can't beat the Yankees" is a tired narrative. Sure, it might be correct considering the Twins are 2-13 against the New York Yankees in recent postseason memory. I just think to leave it at that doesn't tell the whole story of the 8-4 Twins l...

A trip down memory lane: Twins v. Yankees
The old saying in sports never gets old for me: That's why they play the games. It's used in the context of upsets and underdogs. Just because a team is Goliath when it comes to odds, stats and analytics, doesn't mean Goliath will win. They play the game to...

Sports can bring about the unexpected, which definitely makes the games worth watching. You can predict all you want. It doesn't compare to the real thing. At the start of their homestand Tuesday night, the Minnesota Twins did something that no other team h...

Let's hope this is just the beginning for a new chapter in women's tennis
It was not a three-set match. Nor was it a nail-biter. There was not much suspense in determining a winner. But the women's U.S. Open final still ended with a great moment between American foes and friends, No. 15 seed Madison Keys and unseeded Sloane Steph...

Previewing the U.S. Open: Key injuries, withdrawls could leave the door open for new champions
The Minnesota State Fair started on Thursday, which typically signifies the end of summer as some depressed Minnesotans prepare for the long winter ahead, the start of school and a new year filled with activity. There's something else that falls at the same...

Business trip to Miller Park
I'm not sure how it's already approaching the end of August. Summers will just always fly by, right? I wish it went like that for the long winters we have. Those seem to drag on and on. But, it's still baseball season. So I'll focus on that and a recent roa...

The busy, fun, wide world of sports
It's the last day of July. In the sports world, it's an interesting time of transition. The past couple weeks are some of the quietest around in the overall sports realm. The NHL is pretty quiet after the draft and free agency opens, not much out of the NBA...
