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!

MAY B&B ...
November 16, 2007… Since that date, the Minnesota Wild cannot, and will not be considered a tough team.
Yep, your favorite "Dream Weaver" cannot stop thinking about Monday night at Lambeau Field. Getting dreamy about pulling a massive upset, a win that would be the biggest shocker of the season. For any team. Yes, even bigger than Seattle at the Giants and the Rams versus the Saints. If you can win at Lambeau against this beast of a team you can win them all and finish 10-and-6, which would be tremendous.
Not counting on it and stopped expecting things from Our Favorite Colors after the Chicago debacle, but beating by far the best team in the game can jumpstart some serious dream weaving. Things I like about our chances include WINFIELD returning, ADRIAN and PERCY being fresh off the "bye," CHRISTIAN being able to handle pressure and the fact members of our defense still are mad we were pushed around end of the game in Border Battle 101. Remember, after going five-wide, shotgun, no-huddle all game Green Bay daggered us by running and moving man. WOBBY just told me they ran us into a loss six times for 55 yards on that game-sealing bit.
After watching back the Green Bay win at San Diego last night and taking it in live Sunday a couple of vibes jump out: its defense is due to run a big one and the energy generated from a MNF home game is bound to shore up some things on that side of the ball. Too, the way the Packers use their receivers is brilliant.
The QB is so freaking accurate and good and shares the wealth so well they are able to sub the hell out of their best receivers (JENNINGS, NELSON and FINLEY). Thus, for the most part they always are fresh and offer some pop when they play. To wit, they insert JAMES JONES and/or RANDALL COBB and get some serious productivity out of them and they are not winded from playing every snap.
RODGERS hits everybody and has nine-receivers-used games. Watch, he'll show off and put CRABTREE or QUARLES on big-spot plays because he has faith in them all. Hate the team or whatever the Green Bay offense is a spectacular watch. Football Snobs are blushing.
Nobody ever takes a two-score lead on the champs and that would be fresh to see Monday evening. Driving 80 and scoring, then a JARED ALLEN strip-sack, then a score would make them work a little harder, right? They are on cruise control at this moment and, thus, are by far the best team in the NFL. Rodgers would zap Baltimore's defense.
We as dream weavers, though, will take our chances and enjoy the cultivation of Christian and the opportunity to pull a huge upset for a nationally televised audience. Chip, chair, chance, right? Let's play!
