Sports Bio

I'm a hardcore Minnesota fan. Everything from the Minnesota high school sports, to the Minnesota professional sports. However, my favorite teams are: the Vikings, Timberwolves, Twins, and the Wild. No matter how bad these teams are, I will always be defending them one hundred percent. In addition to being a hardcore Minnesota fan, I am also a huge fan of all other major sports. To show that I am a huge fan of all major sports, I have created an all-sports website, and an all-sports message forum.

Gagne Done For Season: What was hoping wouldn't happen just became a reality as Eric Gagne will undergo Tommy John surgery; which will take him out for th rest of he season. Gagne didn't play much this season, and it's a shame. Expect him to come back next season and be better than last season.

Is The Hall Of Fame Out Of The Question For Mark McGwire?: Because of all this talk of steroids and McGwire's bad showing in court, Mark McGwire could very well be out of the Hall of Fame forever. Some people think that the Hall of Fame is for players with the best numbers. Some people think that the Hall of Fame is for players who are good role models. And other people think that the Hall of Fame is for both players with the best numbers, and for players with good morals and don't cheat. Until someone can prove, or McGwire personally anounces, that he used steroids, it's going to be hard to keep him off the ballots. And if he's on the ballot, it's going to be hard for people not to vote for him.

NHL Cancels Draft Because of Lockout: The future of the NHL is in trouble. After all of the meetings, after all of the hours of talks, nothing has been done. Not only is the integrity of the NHL in trouble, but the NHL as a hockey league is in trouble.

Gagne Done For Season

It's a very major surgery which, if performed wrong, can end a pitcher's career. However, it has been proven that a lot of pitchers who have had Tommy John surgery pitch better than pitchers who haven't had Tommy John surgery.

Miracle shot

I watched that game, and I watched that shot. I was cheering for the other team because my cousin goes to the other school, but it truly was an amazing shot. It makes it even better that it was a last-second shot to keep the game alive and send it into double overtime, and it eventually helped his team (Hopkins) to a win. After the game, the kid tried to make the exact same shot again, and it took him 21 tries to make a basket. The shot was so amazing that he was on Good Morning America.

Bonds May Miss 2005 Season

Even though Barry Bonds is hurt and he's getting older, a big reason why he might not play at all this season is definitely because of the media. He can play through pain, as he has proven numerous times in the past. Every time Bonds was hurt, the media said that the pain was no problem for him. Bonds wanted to live up to the media's expectations, so he always tried as much as he could to play while he was hurt. And when he couldn't play, the media always bothered him and always asked him when he would come back to play. When Barry Bonds started to reach the home run record, the media always had a set number for him to reach by the end of each season. If Barry reached the set number that season, the media had an even higher number set the next season. If he didn't reach the set number, the media would say that there's something wrong with him. It's a "no win" situation. And the reason why Barry Bonds always tried to do what the media wanted him to do, was because the media has such a strong influence on the fans of baseball. And Bonds has always tried to do want the fans would love to see him do.
