Winter Season is Here

So the Timberwolves start tonight, and the Wild are playing. Winter sports are officially underway...

But I don't care. The high school game of the year is this Friday night: Jefferson at Eden Prairie. I will be on the mic for the game, and I can't wait...it has all the makings of a classic. Objectively, I can't pick against EP when they're playing at home. But if anyone's going to beat them, it could be this Jefferson team - it has found a nice running/passing balance, and their defense has only allowed 13 points in two playoff games. Jefferson also has history on their side. The last time these two teams played a section championship game at EP? Jefferson won a classic game in overtime.

I like the new NHL. Have I said that yet? The shootouts have been fun to watch so far (even the Wild's shootout when they went 1 for 8 and lost), but the game is faster, there are fewer stoppages and the talent level is up. All good things for a game "on ice"...

And the T'wolves? I think they're destined for a 7 or 8 seed this year and a first round exit. But I'm excited to see if Casey's defensive schemes mesh with this team. Like Dallas, there hasn't been much D in the Timberwolves in the past few years. And anytime you get a team together and win with defense, that's a good sign. See the Spurs and Pistons. I think it will take some time, but so far I like what Coach Casey has done with this team. And all those experts predicting KG won't make the playoffs for 2 straight years will be proven wrong.

Notice we're not talking about the Vikes. Ouch.

I'm out like Daunte Culpepper (but I'll be back a lot sooner than one year from now).

I agree with what you said about the Wild...it is a mighty fun game to watch, and it'll be interesting to see what the T-Wolves can do this year (they need to steal the "Get to Know Them" ad campaign from the Twins, though).
