Different name but shirts are still optional.....

Richard Pitino had an interesting postgame speech for his team after another terrible loss, this time to Nebraska. He knows it's his last few games as Minnesota Gophers head coach. Brandon's been dreaming of this day for years.

Then, we jump over to the lowly Timberwolves, and whether KAT can be a sidekick on a willing team, before Eric talks about how the Twins make him nervous.

Episode 62 of the Minnesota Sports Fan Podcast is full of presidential pardon history knowledge, TIGER documentary reviews, Kirill Kaprizov and.... WTF was Rick Spielman thinking when he passed on Antoine Winfield Jr and Tyler Johnson?

The Minnesota Sports Fan Podcast is now on two-a-weeks and Brandon couldn't get through without drinking. He has a lot to say about a few controversial subjects to start things off. Then He and Eric eventually get into it over the Twins and Timberwolves.

So... alcohol or not, this episode is pretty much the same as all of the others.

Brandon and Eric are in your ears again and this time Eric is apparently "working out"... which can't be true, according to Brandon.

After spending way too much time on work outs, it's time for things that don't matter, like the PJ Fleck's new infatuation with the transfer portal, Dalvin Cook with a chip on his shoulder and Tim Walz hating sports fans around the state.

It's episode 59 and we're all over the place.
MSF is moving up in the world again and we have an announcement for some activities next week.
Then, we move on to the Tyus Jones news that dropped on Wednesday morning (we try to figure out why the Wolves don't want any serviceable PG's on their team). Could they possibly want Russell Westbrook? Does that make sense for the Wolves?
Amir Coffey got the 2-way contract he ...

In episode 58 of the Minnesota Sports Fan Podcast, I open the show with Seth Toups (MSF Writer, KLGR Radio) and we talk mostly Wolves and their crazy weekend, where they lost out on D'Angelo Russell and then helped the Warriors finish the deal to land him? But.... hope is what came out of the weekend. Hope that we might deal Andrew Wiggins.

After chatting a little Twins to end our segment with Seth, Ryan Burns joined the show fo...

It's been another big week in the sports "abyss".

Eric heard details on the new Madden and it looks like EA is going big this year... that's what we discuss during a well-read 1st segment before transitioning to the Twins being back. They beat the Rays in game 1 of a 3 gamer in Target Field this week. Are we worried about Miguel Sano???

Then, shit gets real controversial when we start discussing the NCAA's latest...

The Timberwolves are slotted to pick number 11 in Thursday's draft... but rumors are swirling... but does it matter with Wiggins on the roster?
The Twins have hit a small bump in the road over the last 4 games. It's nothing to worry about but our playoff pitching is. What do the Twins do to f...

Welcome to Episode 55 of the Minnesota Sports Fan Podcast where we have another new producer named Kyle. There is a war on that name, if you haven't heard. Kyle reads and talks about that.

Most of this episode is filled with Brandon and Eric fighting about how "untouchable" the top Twins prospects really are and what it would take for the team to bring in some dominant pitching to help with a world series run.

Kyle then d...

The Minnesota Twins are the hottest team in baseball and might have the best team to ever step onto a professional Minnesota diamond... but the first 20 minutes of this show was derailed because Brandon's mind gets sidetracked when you mention "smoking hot" and "twins" in the same sentence....

Eventually, we did recover and were able to talk about how good this baseball team really is and what kind of move they s...

Episode 53 is full because the Minnesota Sports Abyss is non-existent in 2019. The Twins continue to dominate everyone, winning 6 of 7 in their last two series and pulling a ridiculous record of 33-16 to start the season... wtf is happening?
Ryan Saunders won a contest for the Minnesota Timberwolves head coach that didn't have any other contestants...
The MIAC kicked St. Thomas out of their conference because they win too much an...

Minnesota Sports Fan Writer and the Great Kirk Cousins Defender, Brian Heintz joins the MSF Podcast for the entire show and we put his QB love to the test immediately by having him stack Kirk Cousins vs the rest of the QB's in the league... Where does Kirk really stand vs his adversaries?

Is Kyle Rudolph leaving? Probably... Will we miss him?

Then, it's onto our current team in action, the Minnesota Twins, who have quietly st...

Episode 51 of the Minnesota Sports Fan podcast has forced us to talk about the Timberwolves since they hired a New President of Basketball Operations, in Gersson Rosas. Your PoBOing skills don't matter when you have Andrew Wiggins strapped to your back.

The sun starts shining again when we talk about the Twins, who we knew would bounce back last night after losing 2 of 3 in New York. Now standing at 21-12 and atop the Central Di...

Episode 50 went off the rails a lot. Brandon and Eric were distracted driving through this entire episode and it made for one of the best yet.

Through it all, we recap the Vikings draft, discussing all of the good things and some of the flaws Spielman displayed over the weekend.

Twins Baseball doesn't get left off of this podcast anymore since all they do is win, with another victory last night, this time against the AL West le...

In episode 49, our professional is showing. We have our favorite draft expert, Jordan Reid to get us all hot and bothered for the incoming NFL Draft and what the Vikings will do with their picks. You can be the smartest Vikings draft person at work if you listen to this half hour.

After letting Jordan go, we dive into our best montage yet... and it's Tiger Woods - Masters related. We talk about it too.. but the MONTAGE...

As we episode closer and closer to the half-century mark, we have a new guest this week! Brandon Warne was gracious enough to lend us his baseball expertise to anwer questions on the Twins and the unwritten rules of baseball. It's time for America's pastime to make some changes.

Once we finally let Brandon go, we found some time to talk about Richard Pitino's contract extension and what it means.... (hint: nothing)

In episode 47, Brandon and Eric dive deep into the Minnesota Twins optimism now that we have a series win over Cleveland under our belts.
It's not all positive though as the NCAA Tournament is evil and we discuss whether it's worth watching the tournament next year or worth spending time at US Bank stadium or downtown for this year's Final Four.
We recap the Gopher Basketball season as JellyFam looks to transfer away.
