Category Archives: The Sportive

We talked a lot about Ron Gardenhire’s firing on the Sportive this week, with occasional asides to cover the wanton stupidity of Ned Yost, Gopher football, the Vikings, and who to cheer for in the MLB Playoffs. Also: my plan to make the new Twins managers the entire 1987 team.

For the 73rd consecutive podcast, we complained about the Twins and Minnesota sports owners. We also talked grouse hunting.

On this week’s Sportive, we talked mostly NFL – including the Vikings’ win, our sleeper team (the Bills), and whether we should be watching the NFL at all.

Then later in the week it turned out that Adrian Peterson likes to hit his kids. So, good job NFL!

Jesse Lund of Twinkie Town stopped by for Episode 70 of the podcast.

Then, on Episode 71, we recorded a two-part Vikings preview.

Podcasts: like blog posts for your ears.

Local Gopher football expert / Minnesota sports cynic / brother Dave Marthaler was back on the podcast this week. We talked Gopher football for an hour. This, after I’d failed to record about half an hour of talking.

This week on the podcast, old friends Michael Rand and Rocket stopped by Sportive HQ. Brandon was there. Stu showed up too. Eventually we had five people around the table, a new record; only Clarence missed out.

We recorded a podcast while we were there.

Tune into this week’s throwback edition of the podcast to find out who we wished Ebola on (and immediately took it back).

I think the guys on the podcast are just letting me talk about soccer to be nice, but it’s fun all the same.

I talked mostly about soccer on the latest episode of the Sportive. It was fun for me, though perhaps not for the listener.

I only could show up for like the last ten minutes of the podcast this week. I bet it’s pretty awesome, then.
