VROOM, VROOM!!! The most famous race in America was Sunday, the Daytona 500 and you probably missed it. Growing up I loved watching NASCAR on Sundays with my dad, it was something to have in the background and we could cheer on our favorite drivers. More recently it seems I may have grown out of my love for NASCAR, but why? Racing is fun! One of my favorite weekends last summer include me and a few guys from the radio stations driving up to Arlington for Saturday night races. So why is NASCAR boring to me? I caught some of the [...]

For Minnesotans after this long winter filled with snow, the idea of the sun and seasonal warmth sounds incredibly rejuvenating! Maybe time to fly down and walk through the gates of Hammond Stadium and see the boys of summer in early action. Spring Training Baseball in Florida presents a stark contrast to the weather at home in March, historically the snowiest in Minnesota. Today Wednesday, February 13 the Twins Pitchers and Catchers report to training with full team workouts beginning on Monday, February 18. Now the fun part, baseball comes home to Minnesota, Target Field in 43 days. FORTY-THREE DAYS! As we shovel out [...]

New Sport

The sports world is vast, with so many different people with different likes and skills making each sport unique. Competitions created to train and prove the capability to be part of a certain group, some developed sports can link back to early rituals and warfare turned entertainment. Lots of words basically saying, some sports are created out of necessity and then turned to entertainment. Which brings me to a new sport, soon to be an Olympic activity for Minnesotans to excel at... SNOW SHOVELING! Each match would consist of two-member teams using shovels to clear a determined length+width of a driveway with a [...]

Being from Wisco and staying there to play is one thing, but being from Minnesota and choosing to play in Wisco is cockamamy. Wisconsin guard, Brad Davison is the latter, during last night's Minnesota loss it appears Davison sticks out his leg under Gophers forward Jordan Murphy on a rebound trying to trip or injure him. See the video below. THIS IS WHY NO ONE LIKE YOU, BRAD! https://twitter.com/barstooltweetss/status/1093354801558159360?s=20

Hey! I'm Stunt Monkey, and I'm ready to dip my toes into the sports world from time to time. So FAN Mankato, are you ready for my hard-hitting sports take? Here we go: The San Antonio Spurs - New Orleans Pelicans game stopped abruptly on Saturday. NO fans were on the court, NO injuries to players. There was a LIVE BAT flying around the court! No worries! The Spurs mascot, a coyote that was already wearing a Batman costume, ran in with a giant net and captured it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EqR_uChCWD4 Apparently, the mascot was dressed and ready, because several bats flew onto [...]
