GDG rundown for the weekend of Nov. 10th-12th

Print this entry


This show isn’t just nationally-known, it’s internationally-known.  This week, Eric is guiding the show in Minneapolis, while Larry is out in Phoenix.  They dive in on the juicy story of Jerry Jones’ lawsuit threat against the NFL.  The Vikings might have a QB controversy going into the second half of the season.  The Twins get some gold to show off in their trophy case, while the MLB celebrates the life of an ace pitcher gone too soon.  Will the Gophers find a way to get bowl eligible?  Did a loss to Golden State do more good than harm for the Wolves?  Then, GDG columnist Scott Taylor joins the program to look at the Wild’s poor start, soccer and baseball’s footprint in Canada, and more.

It’s Not All Good-ell for Jerry Jones
Segment 1: While Eric and Larry have some distance between them this week, one thing that pulls them together is the NFL.  The guys analyze Jerry Jones’ threat to sue the league if Commissioner Roger Goodell’s contract gets extended.  Will the Dallas Cowboys owner get his way?


Who Will Go Under Center for the Vikes?
Segment 2: As the Vikings get into the second half of their season, there’s a large question looming.  Should Case Keenum keep his starting QB job, or should Teddy Bridgewater come back to the huddle right off of the PUP list?  And what does Tom Brady have to do with that decision?


Remembering an Ace & Going for Some Gold
Segment 3: The sports world is not all smiles this week.  Baseball is mourning the sudden and tragic passing of former Cy Young-winning pitcher Roy Halladay.  However, there are brighter stories from the diamond.  Our guys discuss the Gold Glove-winning attributes of Twins’ stars Byron Buxton and Brian Dozier.  Plus, will the Twins be proactive during this Hot Stove season?


Gophers Digging More Holes & Wolves Look to Rebound
Segment 4: The father might be the media darling, but the son isn’t far behind.  The fellas look at the rising profile of Larry Fitzgerald, Jr.  Then, can the Gopher football team turn things around when they face Nebraska?  And the Timberwolves’ winning streak couldn’t last forever.  But they’re still on solid ground early on.


GDG’s Scott Taylor Talks Canadian Sports & Wild Hockey
Segment 5: One of our hosts had plans to maintain, but one of our contributors steps right in for the latter portion of the show.  GDG’s Scott Taylor connects from Winnipeg and kicks off the segment by talking the impact of MLS on the north side of the border.  Is Montreal on the short track to get another MLB franchise?  And are the Wild placing doom over their playoff chances before Thanksgiving?


Remembering “Doc” Halladay with GDG’s Scott Taylor
Segment 6: If Roy Halladay meant a lot to baseball in the U.S., his impact meant even more to baseball in Canada.  Scott Taylor describes that as we look back at the career of the late ace pitcher of the Toronto Blue Jays and Philadelphia Phillies.
