The Winter sports teams in the Twin Cities are in full swing, which means that there’s plenty for Eric and Larry to chat about as they take a short sprint up the road.  They broadcast this week’s episode from the Target Center in Minneapolis.  Of course, they’ll look at the Wolves during this lengthy homestand.  That includes a conversation with Fox Sports North analyst Jim Peterson about the team’s early trajectory.  The Vikings are still looking to grab that NFC North title.  The Wild seem to be skating on smoother ice these days.  Plus, a former Twins hurler gets ready to be immortalized in bronze.

Wolves Crown the Kings on Thursday

Segment 1: The Timberwolves hosted Sacramento on Thursday and turned out to be quite rude to their guests. The guys dig deep into the Wolves’ win over the Kings.  And could the man team fans always refer to as “The Franchise” actually end up buying the franchise?

 

Vikings Rearin’ to Celebrate

Segment 2: The Vikings couldn’t wrap up the NFC North title last week, but they’ll get another chance to do so this week when they host Cincinnati.  Is this the last run for Mike Zimmer’s former boss, Marvin Lewis, in the Queen City?  What do the Vikes need to do to get over last week’s loss at Carolina?

 

Sports Figures Caught Up in Allegations

Segment 3: More sexual harassment allegations rocked the entertainment industry this week, and some of that focus was in the world of sports.  Our hosts explain why the NFL Network and ESPN are in the headlines.  Later, does the return of Aaron Rodgers mean realistic playoff hopes for the Packers?

 

L.A. Football’s Sunny Outlook & Jack’s Hall Call

Segment 4: Is the latest “NFL in L.A.” experiment starting to find its footing?  The guys describe how the Rams and Chargers are playing winning football in SoCal.  Plus, Jack Morris finally gets his nod for the Baseball Hall of Fame.

 

Three-Man Weave: FSN Analyst Jim Peterson Talks Hoops with GDG

Segment 5: The conversation turns back to the Timberwolves as FSN broadcaster Jim Peterson joins the hosts for a few questions?  How has the team (and the league) accepted the present wave of technological input?  Should there be concern over minutes for the starters?  And why have the Wolves struggled against the Eastern Conference?

 

Wild Starting to Find Some Wins

Segment 6: The Wild were also in action on Thursday.  They extended their winning streak to four games with a shutout win over Toronto.  Has the team finally found their groove?  Then, we hear the latest thoughts on Lavar Ball, along with potential concerns over the upcoming Winter Olympics in South Korea.
