Hey Future!

They made a time capsule at the Hodgman show this past evening. I filmed it using ones and zeros. In other words, I filmed it without using film. Just crazy. The film is below.

Tim Te…..

I started a wikipedia search on Tim Tebow, and instead I read the article on Tim Teufel. He just became the 3rd base coach for the Mets! No Tebowing for me today, I am doing the Teufel shuffle!

Minnesota Muskies

Back in 1967-68, Minnesota had an ABA franchise, the Muskies. They played really well, but still didn’t draw crowds. So they only lasted the one season. More history is on the TimberWolves site.

The TimberWolves are doing something I hope the Vikings pick up on – wearing Muskies throwback uniforms 6 times this season. If we can get the Vikings to become the Duluth Eskimos for one week a year, that would make my day. Plus some extra cash in merchandising for the Vikings.

One disappointment, no Red/White/Blue basketball. I begged my parents for a Red/White/Blue basketball when I was a kid. They first got me a cheap Voit Red/White/Blue basketball, that quickly faded. It became, essentially, a white basketball by the end of the summer. Finally in my mid-teens a got a real Red/White/Blue basketball. So cool. The NBA needs to bring that back on occasion.

Return of the Duluth Eskimos

A Minnesota state legislator wants to build the Viking football stadium in Duluth. His financing is shaky at best, but he has land and he has chutzpah. He is envisioning a Green Bay Packer situation where this small city is a 2 hour drive from the biggest city in the state. Difference being, Green Bay is a rabid sports town, Duluth/Superior is not.

I’m all in favor of bringing back the Duluth Eskimos. But it should be a throwback jersey game played in the twin cities. In case you were wondering, the Duluth Eskimos have a 1-3-1 record against their hated rival, the Green Bay Packers. Don’t let this rivalry die.
