Mike Max’s News And Notes For July 15, 2011

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The NFL lockout could be over by next week, Kim Kardashian is in town with former Gopher Kris Humphries and the Wild is evaluating talent this week.

It was all featured in this week’s News and Notes from Mike Max.

The Minnesota Vikings think their advantage to the lock out and no off season teamwork is on defense, where the team will be close to the same.

Vikings first round pick and quarterback Christian Ponder told WCCO-TV he will be back in town for good on Monday. He’s been working out with fellow rookie tight end Kyle Rudolph and Vikings tackle Steve Hutchinson.

The word from the Vikings right now is they are luke warm in Donovan McNabb. If the lockout is settled next week, they don’t expect to hold organized team activities, just training camp on July 31 either in Mankato or Eden Prairie.

Kim Kardashian’s reality television show will have a crew in town with fiance Kris Humphries this weekend.

Gophers’ men’s basketball forward Ralph Sampson has been training in Chicago with Michael Jordan’s former trainer. Former Braham star Noah Dahlman, who just graduated from Wofford, has signed a basketball contract overseas.

Look for former gopher assistant Jimmy Williams to have another appeal hearing on his lawsuit next week.

Wisconsin and Benilde-St. Margaret’s star Jordan Taylor was named one of the top five points guards in the country coming out of  an all-star summer camp.

Glen Perkins plan for the all-star break included time on the lake with Carl Pavano.

And a Devin Setoguci t-shirt is on sale for $27, but if you want the same Martin Havlat t-shirt it’s $10. The Wild will hold a scrimmage Saturday at Xcel Energy Center to cap their week of developmental camp.
