Category Archives: The Sportive

Our friend Hans Van Slooten joined us for another hockey-centric episode, as we previewed the Wild-Avalanche first-round series. We also, as usual, got stupid.

This week on the Sportive, we name our Bottom 5 Twins prospects, and do a 30-second-long Frozen Four preview. It’s fun.

This week on the podcast, noted baseball expert Nick Nelson joined us. Later, we did a Twitter mailbag, because all the cool kids do.

This week’s podcast had no point. Eventually I ended up yelling at Clarence about college hockey and newspapers. I can’t say it was my finest hour.

We did eventually talk about Gopher basketball on this week’s podcast, with Star Tribune Gopher hoops beat writer Amelia Rayno, but first we talked about Bigfoot and Hanson for about an hour. Listen, won’t you?

We talk Wild trade deadline and make some Twins predictions in this week’s podcast. Plus: Stu runs through his top Little-Known Former Science Museum Exhibits, which is good times for all.

We talked about everything we could think of on the podcast this week. It started with the Wolves, touched on the Wild, and at one point veered off to ranting about the Big Ten Network and discussing which championship we most wanted to see before we die. Have a listen, I hope.

We talked a lot about the Winter Olympics on this week’s podcast, for which our friend Brian Stensaas joined us, live from the Star Tribune newsroom.

I admit that much of the reason I brought this up was so that I could yell about Brian Rafalski.

Last week, we found out that friend of the podcast Parker Hageman was once on a reality television show. The only surprise is that it took us a week to have him on the podcast to talk about it.

We got both Aaron Gleeman and John Bonnes to come on the podcast at the same time this week. We celebrated by going to the bar. This was the result.
