Print this entry

It’s the week where some things wind down in the sports world, while others are just getting wound up.  This week, Eric and Larry are back together at the Downtown studio in Minneapolis (well, at least, most of the time).  They dig right into the story of the week…those lovable, winnable Minnesota Twins.  How did the Twinkies score wins in their first three games of the new year?  GDG’s own Tom Tuttle has his thoughts, along with some on the playoff-bound Wild.  Plus, did Tony Romo just get a sweeter gig than quarterback of the Dallas Cowboys?  The Timberwolves will look to next season…again.  And the college basketball season wraps up in thrilling fashion.

Break Up Those Twins

Segment 1: Opening Day has not been kind to the Twins over the last few years.  Boy, did they turn that around this week.  Eric and Larry are in studio to recap the team’s opening series sweep over the Royals.  Can the team build momentum?  And, with so many event options, can they draw fans back to Target Field?

 

The GDG Trio: Eric, Larry, and Tom Tuttle Get Into the Weekly Headlines

Segment 3: The trio dives back into the Twins’ opening series of the regular season.  What are the expectations after the sweep of Kansas City?  Then, the Wild are gearing up for another postseason appearance.  Are they finally ready to make a deep run into May?

 

Analyzing Tony Romo’s Move to Analyst

Segment 4: The Tony Romo sweepstakes is over, and the winner is…CBS.  Our hosts talk about the former Dallas QB’s decision to retire from the game and walk straight into the broadcast booth.  Speaking of quarterbacks, will some of the former NFL starters be able to get picked up out of the free agent pool?

 

Jeter the Owner?  And the Wolves Wind Down

Segment 5: Derek Jeter was one of the faces of Major League Baseball for the last 20 years.  Could he become the next former player to turn his career path to ownership?  The fellas look into which team he may be buying into, and whom his competition could be.  After that, the Timberwolves will once again miss the playoffs.  What can the franchise do to break their postseason-less streak in 2018?

 

Evaluting the End of the College Hockey and Hoops Seasons

Segment 6: Larry had pressing business to attend to, so GDG producer Jonathan Lowe steps in to chat about college sports with Eric.  How good does the NCHC look as they represent half of the NCAA’s Frozen Four?  Then, they put a wrap on the college basketball season (both men’s and women’s).
