SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — John Richman was holding his 3-year-old granddaughter Ellie when he got a mammoth hug from his son Dave. It was Dave, in his first year as a head coach, who just experienced what every college basketball coach hungers for: a berth into the NCAA Tournament.
FRISCO, Texas — Who’s going to win the big football game?
FARGO — When Lynn Dorn recently walked into what many of us still call the Bison Sports Arena, she saw lots of dust, gravel floors, sparks from an I-beam being welded, and a backhoe sitting in what used to be a swimming pool.
FARGO — Mike Cummings was 4 years old the last time a Kansas City Royals baseball team reached the playoffs in 1985. His first memory of Major League Baseball came two years later when he watched the Minnesota Twins win the World Series.
FARGO — For a second straight year, the nation watched downtown Fargo party like it was Mardis Gras in New Orleans.
AMES, Iowa — For all of you college football fans who still have problems distinguishing between FBS and FCS, here’s a helpful tip: Remember the FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision) as Football’s Big Shots. Think of the FCS (Football Championship Subdivision) as Football’s Cheaper Squads.
FARGO — At the risk of offending my very own name, perhaps the Minnesota Timberwolves professional basketball franchise (and I use that description loosely) should avoid anyone who has the first name “Kevin.”
FARGO — Last year at this time, Craig Bohl was answering questions on how to keep his North Dakota State football team from becoming complacent while aiming for a third straight national championship.
Fargo — If you are one who appreciates a fresh, new look every once in awhile, then you are going to like this year’s Minnesota Vikings.
FARGO — We watched in awe. Not only was the 1967 Major League Baseball All-Star game being beamed to 14 million households across America, it was the first time we experienced the brilliance of color television.
