It looks like the Ravens are trying to sign Matt Birk. This would a horrible thing for the Vikings to lose such a great guy, a hometown guy, a smart guy. He went to Harvard and grew up in the Twin Cities. On top of that he is a true class act. The Vikings and Zygi Wilf need to stop worrying so much about the new stadium and sign Birk. He has contributed greatly to the success of Adrian Peterson in the last two years.
All the Gopher fans out there know that tonight's game against Wisconsin is a must win. Goldy is hanging off the NCAA Tournament cliffside right now hoping to win these last games. If we can't do that then we need to win the Big Ten Tournament which we have never done. I hope that after beating the Badgers at the Kohl Center, which was amazing, we can beat them at the Barn. During the last ten years the Gophers and every Minnesota pro sports team has flirted with greatness only to let down their fans, just ask the Gopher football team and I think everyone remember someone missing their only field goal of the year in the biggest game of the year ten years ago. I hope this isn't another one of those big letdowns.
