GDG rundown for the weekend of Aug. 11th – 13th

by Gameday Gold Staff | August 10, 2017 10:13 pm

Time’s ticking to take care of those Summer vacations.  So, the road show continues for one of our hosts.  Larry is back in the Twin Cities, while Eric has traveled east on I-94 to the city known as Chicago.  The guys really dig into the Second City, from the ChiSox to how things roll on different sides of the metro.  The Vikings get their preseason underway.  What should we expect from this version of the Purple?  And how important of a role has Mankato played in the franchise’s history.  Is the World Series matchup a foregone conclusion?  The Lynx will have to get familiar with another homecourt come playoff time.  And Larry catches up with the 3M Champion (Paul Goydos), the President’s Cup captain (Steve Stricker), and a stud Viking defender (Eric Kendricks).

No Winning Time for the White Sox 

Segment 1: With Eric rolling into Chicago to take in a White Sox game , the guys look at the disappointment on the South Side of the Second City.  Plus, can the Twins pull it together enough to stay in the postseason chase?

 

Which Side of the Windy City?

Segment 2: Our hosts take another look at the city of Chicago.  What makes the difference between the North Side and the South Side?  After that, Larry recaps the Champions Tour making their annual stop in the Twin Cities.  And who’s the favorite to win this weekend’s PGA Championship?

 

It’s Back to Football for the Purple

Segment 3: The Vikings have found their way to the Preseason.  What can we expect once the regular season starts?  The fellas give their thoughts on where the team can improve.  Then, a former Purple signal caller made an impression during the second game of the NFL Preseason.

 

A Title-Series Collision Course?

Segment 4: The Dodgers and Astros are running away with the best records in their respective leagues.  But will they meet in the World Series?  Eric and Larry discuss any other contenders that could derail the potential showdown.  They also look into the participation decline in golf after yet another Minneapolis city course announces it will (at least partially) close.

 

Larry Gets His Miles and Grabs Some Sound

Segment 5: Larry continued his busy week when he returned from the NFL’s Hall of Fame weekend in Canton, OH.  His first stop was Blaine, where he caught up with the winner of last weekend’s 3M Championship (Paul Goydos) and this year’s U.S. President’s Cup captain (Steve Stricker).  Next, Larry strolled into Mankato and chatted with Vikings linebacker Eric Kendricks before the team said its final goodbyes to the city.

 

The Roaming Lynx & A Fond Farewall

Segment 6: The Lynx are undoubtedly the WNBA’s best.  Is that fueled by a sense of revenge?  The guys discuss that, as well as the changing homecourts for this season’s team.  And it’s farewell to Mankato for the Vikings.  Our hosts reflect on the impact Training Camp had on the community.
