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!”
One silver lining from the Vikings 1-and-3 start is save New Orleans and Seattle NFC teams are not exactly running away with potential playoff spots. I know from 0-and-3 only a few teams have made the playoffs over like the last 20 years, but this campaign could be different given the topsy-turvy nature of our conference.
The Saints look great, and the switch to the 3-4 defense has worked markedly better than I thought. Despite the loss at Indy I still feel the Seahawks are the class of the NFC, but New Orleans definitely is much better with the head coach back in the mix.
After that the Niners look good, Green Bay has had its moments, the Bears are battered and slumping and the NFC East leader is 2-and-3. We are not out of playoff contention by any stretch but obviously have to rattle off some wins.
We host Carolina and that one is very winnable. The Giants are next, it's on the road and on Monday Night Football. The Giants are just awful right now, blew a lead late at home against Philly and ELI MANNING is making some of the worst decisions of his career. Yeah, we certainly have a chance in that game. Then we have Green Bay at home and despite probably being underdogs at home I have to believe we can win.
The Packers were not super impressive in the home win against Detroit. They did enough to prevail but let a MEGATRON-less Lions team hang around for quite sometime. The Lions defense forced AARON RODGERS into some sketchy situations, but sans Johnson the road team coiuld not make enough plays to compete for the balance of the game. Green Bay was there for the taking, and the Lions couldn't get it done.
Starting Sunday we play eight consecutive against NFC teams, and this conference is begging for teams to jump up and look dominant. Why not us? Go 5-and-3 during the NFC-heavy stretch and from 6-and-6 we might need to run the table to get in -- just like we did last year. #Faith.
