Are you ready for some football?

Tonight is the night when people in Wisconsin really go nuts over their Green Bay Packers. I was driving back from my first rollerski of the year and saw this blown up packer mascot in someone’s driveway. It’s interesting how close we are to the Twin Cities but I’d say it’s 70% Packer fans to 30% Viking fans. The same goes for the Badgers and Gophers. Tonight is going to be a great game so enjoy it as I will with my son and all his football buddies are coming over for at least the first half.

Mary and I got back from a great trip to Los Angeles. I met up with an old teammate of mine Dewayne Eldridge who looks like he could still play today. The Gophers played great and look forward to watching them play this weekend against New Mexico State wh o is coached by Dewayne Walker another old teammate of mine.

I could not live in L.A.. The weather is great, but the traffic would drive me nuts. We also went to a Twins-Angels game and actually saw Joe Mauer hit a homerun. I think it was his first since he played here in Osceola against the Braves.

Many of you do not get the Valley Wire which is Osceola’s alternative newspaper. I’ve been writing for it since day one. See my article on back to basics which was run this week. Enjoy and get ready for some great football!!!

    I hope all of you had an incredible 4th of July weekend.  It sure was a busy one for me.  It started early friday morning with the Siren 5 k run.  I did a 19:40 which was pretty good.  That's 3 sub 20 minute 5k's this year.  Interesting how I wasn't running that fast 5 years ago.  The only thi

    Watching the Masters golf tournament is one of my favorite sporting events every year.  What I love is how the tournament always comes down to the final day and final 9 holes.  This year was a little anti-climatic since no one really came out and challenged the winner Bubba Watson with eagles or b
