If the Vikings lose to the Packers, I’m blaming it on the lame new name of the field

“Branding the field [at the Metrodome] as Mall of America Field represents an opportunity to share our name and image with an even larger nationwide audience. It also connects two treasured Minnesota brands – Mall of America and the Minnesota Vikings – which adds value to both companies.”

WCCO Reports: Favre will be at Vikings’ training camp

Brett Favre a viking for realI know. I know. We have heard so much about nothing about this that, who cares? Well this is finally news that seems pretty legit coming from WCCO.

Wonder if Cory Hollenhorst thought Favre would ever actually be a Viking when he doctored up this SI cover as a joke? According to WCCO’s Mark Rosen it seems Favre will be a Viking and the equipment manager already ordered the Purple #4.

Well I guess the good news is we will not throw a 3-yard dump off to the fullback on a 3rd-and-8 with Favre at the helm. Can you say Super Bowl?

UMD vs. Miami (Ohio) | NCAA W. Regional final

NCAA West Regional final: UMD vs. Miami (Ohio)

Update: UMD loses its bid for the NCAA Frozen Four in a close game against Miami 2 -1. They almost followed up the Friday night “Miracle at Mariucci” with another come back, but they couldn’t get the equalizer they needed to tie the game.  It was a great playoff run by the Dogs and look forward to great season next year. Now we need to hope the BSU Beavers, yes the Bemidji State Beavers, pull off another upset tomorrow night against Cornell to get into the Frozen Four. BSU upset #1 seed Notre Dame 5 -1 tonight in a great game. It was the first NCAA Division I Tournament win in Bemidji State men’s hockey history. Learn more here
