Different name but shirts are still optional.....

Richard Pitino had an interesting postgame speech for his team after another terrible loss, this time to Nebraska. He knows it's his last few games as Minnesota Gophers head coach. Brandon's been dreaming of this day for years. Then, we jump over to the lowly Timberwolves, and whether KAT can be a sidekick on a willing team, before Eric talks about…
 
The Minnesota Sports Fan Podcast is now on two-a-weeks and Brandon couldn't get through without drinking. He has a lot to say about a few controversial subjects to start things off. Then He and Eric eventually get into it over the Twins and Timberwolves. So... alcohol or not, this episode is pretty much the same as all of the others.…
 
Brandon and Eric are in your ears again and this time Eric is apparently "working out"... which can't be true, according to Brandon. After spending way too much time on work outs, it's time for things that don't matter, like the PJ Fleck's new infatuation with the transfer portal, Dalvin Cook with a chip on his shoulder and Tim Walz hating sports f…
 
It's episode 59 and we're all over the place. MSF is moving up in the world again and we have an announcement for some activities next week. Then, we move on to the Tyus Jones news that dropped on Wednesday morning (we try to figure out why the Wolves don't want any serviceable PG's on their team). Could they possibly want Russell Westbrook? Does t…
 
In episode 58 of the Minnesota Sports Fan Podcast, I open the show with Seth Toups (MSF Writer, KLGR Radio) and we talk mostly Wolves and their crazy weekend, where they lost out on D'Angelo Russell and then helped the Warriors finish the deal to land him? But.... hope is what came out of the weekend. Hope that we might deal Andrew Wiggins. After c…
 
It's been another big week in the sports "abyss". Eric heard details on the new Madden and it looks like EA is going big this year... that's what we discuss during a well-read 1st segment before transitioning to the Twins being back. They beat the Rays in game 1 of a 3 gamer in Target Field this week. Are we worried about Miguel Sano??? Then, shit …
 
Episode 56 is lit. We discuss PJ Fleck and Gopher Football's big weekend and talk about the next step in our recruiting development. The Timberwolves are slotted to pick number 11 in Thursday's draft... but rumors are swirling... but does it matter with Wiggins on the roster? The Twins have hit a small bump in the road over the last 4 games. It's n…
 
Welcome to Episode 55 of the Minnesota Sports Fan Podcast where we have another new producer named Kyle. There is a war on that name, if you haven't heard. Kyle reads and talks about that. Most of this episode is filled with Brandon and Eric fighting about how "untouchable" the top Twins prospects really are and what it would take for the team to b…
 
The Minnesota Twins are the hottest team in baseball and might have the best team to ever step onto a professional Minnesota diamond... but the first 20 minutes of this show was derailed because Brandon's mind gets sidetracked when you mention "smoking hot" and "twins" in the same sentence.... Eventually, we did recover and were able to talk about …
 
Episode 53 is full because the Minnesota Sports Abyss is non-existent in 2019. The Twins continue to dominate everyone, winning 6 of 7 in their last two series and pulling a ridiculous record of 33-16 to start the season... wtf is happening? Ryan Saunders won a contest for the Minnesota Timberwolves head coach that didn't have any other contestants…
 
Minnesota Sports Fan Writer and the Great Kirk Cousins Defender, Brian Heintz joins the MSF Podcast for the entire show and we put his QB love to the test immediately by having him stack Kirk Cousins vs the rest of the QB's in the league... Where does Kirk really stand vs his adversaries? Is Kyle Rudolph leaving? Probably... Will we miss him? Then,…
 
Episode 51 of the Minnesota Sports Fan podcast has forced us to talk about the Timberwolves since they hired a New President of Basketball Operations, in Gersson Rosas. Your PoBOing skills don't matter when you have Andrew Wiggins strapped to your back. The sun starts shining again when we talk about the Twins, who we knew would bounce back last ni…
 
Episode 50 went off the rails a lot. Brandon and Eric were distracted driving through this entire episode and it made for one of the best yet. Through it all, we recap the Vikings draft, discussing all of the good things and some of the flaws Spielman displayed over the weekend. Twins Baseball doesn't get left off of this podcast anymore since all …
 
In episode 49, our professional is showing. We have our favorite draft expert, Jordan Reid to get us all hot and bothered for the incoming NFL Draft and what the Vikings will do with their picks. You can be the smartest Vikings draft person at work if you listen to this half hour. After letting Jordan go, we dive into our best montage yet... and it…
 
As we episode closer and closer to the half-century mark, we have a new guest this week! Brandon Warne was gracious enough to lend us his baseball expertise to anwer questions on the Twins and the unwritten rules of baseball. It's time for America's pastime to make some changes. Once we finally let Brandon go, we found some time to talk about Richa…
 
In episode 47, Brandon and Eric dive deep into the Minnesota Twins optimism now that we have a series win over Cleveland under our belts. It's not all positive though as the NCAA Tournament is evil and we discuss whether it's worth watching the tournament next year or worth spending time at US Bank stadium or downtown for this year's Final Four. We…
 
In episode 46, we get ready for the NCAA Tournament by doing the NCAA a favor and round-tabling how to fix the "non-profit" organization with Brandon's old friend, David Queck who drops all sorts of knowledge. After some calm discussion, we think we may have fixed it. After fixing the NCAA with Queck, Brandon and I discuss the upcoming tournament f…
 
This is a very Vikings-centric episode with Free Agency upon us. We talk about the moves that have been made so far and what we might see yet to come. We also listen to Kirk Cousins tell Paul Allen how pissed off he is at how last season ended. Is this really fire we are hearing from Kirk Cousins? We also talk about the status of Richard Pitino and…
 
In episode 44, the guys work to stay on task in an episode that doesn't have a guest. Some straying from topic leads to talk about Twitter troll accounts and more love for PJ Fleck. While on topic, we talk about how good the Twins will be and we estimate how many home runs they will hit by going through the lineup player by player. Can the beat 225…
 
The NFL Draft is around the corner and there is nobody better on the internet to talk to us about it than Jordan Reid or Climb the Pocket and Cover1 Sports. Jordan's road to NFL Draft Analyst fame isn't a normal one. It's the Twitter Cinderella Story! Jordan drops all sorts of knowledge on the Vikings' options at 18. He tells us if it's a lock for …
 
Jerry Kill made a fool of himself on Tuesday evening when he went on national radio with an agenda to slander PJ Fleck. Unfortunately for him, everyone listening has a brain and knows what he said was false. Ryan Burns comes on the show to give us his inside take on the entire situation and then updates us on the current state of Gopher Football re…
 
10 Years ago to the day, "The Office" released the best episode (2 parts) in the best TV series of all time.

From "The Fire Drill" to "CPR Training" this episode lives in TV infamy. Dur…

Minnesota Sports Fan has been quiet with Eric planning and executing major renovations on the site while Brandon tries to forget about Winter with vacation after vacation but the MSF Podcast always delivers.

But enough about our heroism, it was a big weekend. We start with the Gopher football team, who finally brought Paul Bunyan’s Axe back to Minneapolis after 15 years of building u…
 
It was a big day for Minnesota sports on Sunday. 4 major-market teams were in-action and Eric thought it would be fun to place wagers on said events... ...he finds out again the hard way that he should never bet on anything because the world is against him, and especially not on Minnesota teams. They are way too good at letting us down for free, to…
 
On the latest episode of the Minnesota Sports Fan Podcast, we start with Joe Mauer’s retirement press conference where he thanked everyone in the state of Minnesota by name.

We are bringing heavy optimism for Episode 29! The Timberwolves have been losing and that’s something that we should be happy about.
