A worthy cause: The kind sir over at Book of Scrap has put together a fan voting system for the baseball Hall of Fame and is enlisting RandBall’s help. It’s not just for the Class of 2007. It’s to determine if *every* current Hall of Famer is worthy or not. If you care about such things — and RandBall, baseball geek, certainly qualifies — check the link right here and rock the vote. Alphabetically, at least last time we checked, the candidates were George Brett through Roy Campanella.
Predictions? No NFL. No baseball yet. This could get ugly. But let’s try anyway:
*The Gophers men’s basketball team gets its second Big Ten victory Saturday, at home against Penn State. If the U can’t win this game — and yes, we’re aware of their recent history — it might be time to consider the wonderful amenities the MIAC has to offer.
*Wolves and Wild split a pair of games, respectively. Sorry, the vibes are fuzzy on this one. Goals. Baskets. Those things will definitely happen.
*The Gophers women will have a tough time at Wisconsin, especially since Kelly Roysland is out 2-4 weeks with a broken collarbone. A loss, but fairly close.
*A Bengal will be arrested. See, now it’s just too easy.
