The Big Game always has great action and controversy, but there may be no bigger argument amongst watchers of the game than which commercials were the best. I found my top ten and the local one from Winona didn’t make my list because the one they finally showed wasn’t as good as the ones that […]
Here’s the good news: the Vikings are in the playoffs already. The LA Rams lost this last Saturday and that was their last threat to get bumped out. Being in is better than not being in and the hard thing to fathom is that a 10 win team barely got in because the NFC is […]
