Bold Predictions and great area football; What more could you want this fall?

Are the Vikings really 4-1?  How long can we really believe this particular squad can sustain this success?

Well, let’s take a look.  At Washington next week.  That’s a toss-up game, especially if Robert Griffin III is banged up.  Then home against Arizona.  Another team just like the Vikes.  Are they for real?  Great ‘D’, but iffy at quarterback.   Then Tampa Bay…a winnable game.

So, let’s say they go 2-1 over that stretch, making them 6-2 midway through the season?  Who would have guessed that!

Then they go at Seattle, always a tough place to play, and home against Detroit before their bye week.  They could legitimately be 7-3, or 8-2 at the bye!  The stretch after that get’s tougher, but the Vikes good start has definitely put them in position for a playoff run.

Bold Prediction I:  If the Vikes win at Chicago on Nov. 25, they go on to win NFC North.

Does anyone still pay attention to baseball around here?  I know the Twins had another dismal season, but there are some very good teams and good match-ups in the playoffs.  I’m watching the Baltimore-NY Yankee game as I write this. 

My Bold Prediction II is a belt-way series…Washington vs. Baltimore.   My wild card match-up?  Detroit vs. San Francisco.

I love baseball, and love the playoffs.  I hope folks around here haven’t forgotten about this particular drive to the World Series and miss out on something great.

Speaking of missing out, is anyone missing the NHL and their lockout?  Man, we couldn’t get away from the NFL and NBA labor problems, but you wouldn’t even know there is a labor stoppage in hockey.

The Wild looked to have had a nice off-season, and I am really looking forward to them getting back on the ice.  By the way, if anyone knows what the NHL lockout is about, please send me a note and fill me in.

To finish off my pro sports recap, are you gearing up for the NBA?  I admit, the NBA is far from my favorite sport to watch, but I caught more T-Wolves games last season than I had in years and enjoyed watching them.  I hope they can make a nice playoff run next spring. 

Bold Prediction III:  Oklahoma City Thunder win the Championship over Chicago.  D-Rose will have an Adrian Peterson-like comeback, and OKC is ready to make that next step.

How about the high school football in the area this fall?  Perham is No. 1 in the Class AAA QRF.  They are hosting new/old rival Detroit Lakes this week.  The Jackets are hoping to set school attendance records as they host the No. 5-AAAA Lakers.

In between Perham and D.L. is little ‘ol Frazee, who sits at 5-1, with a good chance to run the table to finish 7-1.  They should be in the Class AA Top-10 when the new rankings come out this week.
