We celebrate the 1983 Wayzata Club Hockey Team and one of its stars, Jonny "The Mouse" Mikkelson, who once told me "Our team was so good the varsity wouldn't play us." When asked why he didn't play varsity Mouse said, "Too little." Cutest ever. So, we salute the greatest Club Hockey Team ever, a squad so vaunted even Jim Craig's Miracle team wanted nothing to do with it. Trottier, Bossy, Gretzky, Messier ... dead! Long live the 1983 Wayzata Club Hockey team!

f the Wild were Judge Charles H. Older, the judge that sent Charles Manson to the clink: “2 weeks in the workhouse and 1 month probation!”
Let's stream some thought here in Winnersville, USA. Niners' HC JIM HARBAUGH channeled his inner youth with his team when after wins he'd get them to say, "Who has it better than us? NOBODY!!" Cool stuff. And while it's not exactly like that here right now it's pretty freaking good, and for the guy - me - Voxing a sports show and rooting for the local teams, yeah, I feel good about things right now.
The state's most popular team - the Purple - just housed GREG JENNINGS, and I thought he was honest, long-winded and fun 9-to-Noon today. I very much enjoyed his inclusion and am happy THE ARICHTECT busted the "theme" and pushed in chips on a guy at this stage of his career. We made the playoffs last year, are young with talent in some great spots and have a bleep load of rock-star draft picks - Winnersville!
TUBBY is off to the NCAA Tournament and he and the guys have a chance to make people for get the ratty losses to Iowa, Northwestern and Purdue. The Gophs are favored to beat UCLA, despite being the lower seed. That means one of two things - Team Tubby is better suited for the open-court play battling a team like UCLA brings and will thrive in it or Vegas is giving you a money-line crush on the Bruins that will pay bills for months. I am leaning the way of the former. Problem is they haven't won away from Williams Arena for like 2 1/2 months. Diseased.
So, let's root for the squad to win both games this weekend and advance to the Sweet 16. How great would that be? I am not as empassioned about college sports as the pros, but watching Team Tubby jettision the awful losses late in the year and beat UCLA and Florida would be Winnersville!
The NHL team is in first place and can open up a tad on Vancouver with any kind of win tonite. Taking two and giving zilch with a regulation win is the hope, but given we win there so infrequently that would be tough to predict. LUONGO starts in goal for the Canucks and his save percentage of late is putrid. He, however, hasn't lost to the Wild at home in forever.
We currently are the three seed in the tough WC, and doing penalty box shows as a home team in the playoffs definitely would rock. The trash talking of the adversary would be epic. The second-to-none stable of hockey guests would be unleashed. The Wild will make the playoffs and hopefully as a top-three, division-winning seed. Winnersville!
LUCIA and FROST'S teams have great chances to win titles. Brad's ladies have won 47 in a row and just escaped a triple-OT spinetingler with UND. That must have provided tremedous drama. Don's team is favored to win the WCHA Final Five and looks to be a tough out in the NCAA Tourney. Those teams have us firmly placed in Winnersville.
"Who has it better than us?" Not many right now. And if we ever could keep these Wolves healthy we'd rattle off some wins. We will be Winnersville with them again because THE SPANISH KID is ballin' and DERRICK WILLIAMS finally looks the part. At least the team is fun to watch these days.
Ain't nobody beating the Heat for the NBA Title. Miami never loses and will roll through the EC. Maybe it will lack seasoning by dismantling EC teams and will get an eye-opener in the NBA Finals? Not believing it, unless the crafty Spurs are ready to think their way to a title. Still cannot see anybody beating the Heat through a seven-game series.
Not into baseball a lick right now. Twins are most certainly a non-playoff team, but maybe we'll be surprised by the starting pitching and they'll give us a September sniff of Winnersville? I will say this - SAM DEDUNO = Winnersville! Kid has swerve, wild as he can be. Hope he makes the rotation but not counting on it.
Wonder if the majority of people who slide off the road on snowy days like this were not paying attention while driving and were texting or something? I know bleep happens but if you pay attention, allow proper space between you and the car in front of you and don't speed it almost never should happen.
Do people ever buy stuff at the store after housing the free samples? You can cruise around the market and feed a small army and never buy the items and not feel guilty about it. The other day at Kowalski's I actually munched on a cheese-cracker combo and bought the cheese block and the crackers. Felt good about it and not at all guilty I ate and ran.
I don't get AMC with my cable package yet last night watched three episodes of "The Walking Dead" via the Xfinity bit and loved it. I love zombie shows/movies and definitely have to find a way to watch every episode I have missed.
Winnersville! Let's go!
