I am enjoying these Mariner radio announcers and the camera work is first rate. Very professional and still have some fun without going over the top.


Their radio announcers are announcing the TV broadcast? Interesting.

The problem isn't that it's cold. The problem is that it's windy. We like being in the middle of nowhere. Keeps the riff-raff out.

I don't know Chief too well yet... I suppose I'll find that you're making a good point.

As much as I am pre-disposed to not like Fargo being from Grand Forks.

i admit that Fargo is doing quite well... Restaurants are all full... The economy is flourishing.

Its not AAA material but it could do Single A.

As for Hockey... Grand Forks sells out a state of the art rink. It's a lesson that a winner can draw anywhere.

No, it's a lesson that there is absolutely nothing else to do there. Columbia Mall?

Its the game thread... Making points isn't a high priority here. Everything is fair game...

Usually there are a bunch of flights to Mesa and a few to Denver and Chicago and MSP. Oh well.. All I know is that it's usually about $300 cheaper for me to fly into MSP and make the 4 hour drive home rather than fly into Fargo.

110 pitches is a lot for a Twin. Let's get through the inning Deduno.

As part of your probation you are to keep your pants zipped up at all times.

These teams aren't traveling OUT of Fargo on a Saturday, anyway. What, as for the fans you say? Fly out of Fargo and miss all the Saturday night nightlife opportunities?
