It’s a week of adulation and anticipation when it comes to sports.  Eric and Larry select the biggest headlines to share from the Downtown Minneapolis studio.  The Wild find themselves in some trouble as they play their 1st Round playoff series.  Can they wiggle out of it?  The Twins are starting to find some old issues after owning a bit of success.  The NBA Playoffs have some unexpected spark to them.  The Vikings know the “when” of their 2017 schedule.  And we’re joined by former NFL wideout Greg Jennings as he discusses the power of giving and the prominence of the league.

Wild Looking to Fight Back

Segment 1: The Wild entered the postseason with the second-best point total in the Western Conference.  All that matters now is that they win three straight to move on to the Conference Semifinals.  But can they complete an historic comeback against the Blues?  Eric and Larry provide some examples that could give local fans some hope.

 

Dissecting the NBA’s Second Season

Segment 2: The NBA Playoffs are underway, with some surprising results from the early returns.  The guys look at Milwaukee’s talented, and lanky, roster.  Could the Bucks make a run?  After that, which player has a head start on the league’s MVP vote?

 

Here We Go Again, Twins?

Segment 3: After a blistering start, the Twins have let some ol’ bad habits creep back into the ballpark.  Where has it gone wrong so quickly?  Our hosts also take a broader peek around the early MLB season.

Greg Jennings Talks More Topics On & Off the Field

Segment 5: We hear a few more minutes from former Vikings WR Greg Jennings.  The Western Michigan star explains whether he thinks that former Broncos coach P.J. Fleck is the right man to lead the Gophers.  Plus, how is he handling life after football?  And how did he handle the annual release of an NFL schedule?
