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.
Hockey-reference.com manager Hans Van Slooten came on the podcast this week, and we spent a solid hour talking hockey and discussing hockey advanced stats.
This was strange for us. It had facts. Every time we do this, I rave about how great it is – and this week is no different – yet we probably won’t do it again for a couple of months. We are not great at stuff.
Podcaster emeritus Michael Rand joined us for Episode 44 of the podcast. He has been yelling at us a lot lately, and we thought it best to give him a chance to defend himself.
It’s always impossible to explain the things we talk about on the podcast. We start with a recap of Brandon’s trip to Grand Rapids, we spend a lot of time on the Vikings, and then later somehow I ended up looking up Roseville native Mike Muscala’s stats from the Spanish basketball league.
No guests this week on the Sportive, which gave us plenty of time to ramble. I enjoyed it. Listen?
