There's no cure for the Minnesota Sports Fan Blues

I can’t handle another “Is Torii Leaving?” story. He’s gone. Move On dot Now!

Note to Boston: You’re welcome! You’re welcome for David Ortiz. You’re welcome for Randy Moss. You’re welcome for Kevin Garnett. Oh yeah, and a “Thank You” would be nice!

I’d also like to thank the good folks at Comcast who have spared us from 2007 Golden Gopher football by not picking up the Big Ten Network. I might not be so gracious when Tubby Smith’s squad hits the hardwood.

As if it wasn’t bad enough on this side of the Mississippi, we’ve had to watch Brett Favre and the Pack race to a 6-1 start. Worse yet, we’ve had to listen to Cheeseheads gloat about it.

All of this is so depressing that I am going to watch highlight videos of the ’98 Vikings and ’06 Twins to cheer up. And please don’t tell me how they end.

Maybe they are waiting until the season is over, but it seems to me some of the longtime scribes in the local press would have mentioned the last Gopher Football coach who took a moderately successful squad and ran it into the ground. Or am I being too harsh on Jim Wacker?
