Best MLB Post-Season Pitching Performance

October 8, 2010
Jack Morris MN Twins

I was listening to Mike & Mike in the Morning this morning on the radio coming into work and the topic was MLB post-season pitching performances and which was the best of all time. Of course the discussion started because of Roy Halladay’s no hitter on Wednesday, the first day of the playoffs. Halladay’s gem […]

Good Luck To Saint Johns

December 20, 2003

Good luck to the Johnnies of Saint Johns today as they take on the legendary Mount Union Raiders in the Division III college football championship.

The Wolverines of the University of Michigan beat the Gophers of the University of Minnesota in college football tonight with 31 points in the 4th quarter to win 38-35. How a team can rush for 425 yards and still lose is a tribute to horrible coaching, but that’s not the point of this story. This […]
