MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – People inside the Vikings insist they are intent on making playing baseball a part of the new football stadium.

If the NHL gets salary roll backs as part of their new collective bargaining agreement, it could be big savings for Craig Leipold on Zach Praise and Ryan Suter’s contracts. Suter chartered his own plane to be part of the fundraiser for Jack Jablonski. Nice move!

Former Gopher and Viking Tyrone Carter is interning with the Pittsburgh Steelers coaching staff this training camp.

Trevor Olson, from Richfield and Northern Illinois – where he played for Jerry Kill – is working as a volunteer on the Gopher staff.

Wayzata’s football program has an interesting new addition – a $250 thousand scoreboard.

Long time Gopher offensive line coach Gordie Shaw has joined the Idaho coaching staff.

Osseo High School and Gopher pitcher Tom Windle was so good this summer in the Cape Cod League, some think he could move into a first or second round draft pick.

The Timberwolves assessment of Brandon Roy is that he’s about 80 percent of what he was in his prime.

The North Stars are back in the state…well, the Breezy Point North Stars will join a junior hockey league this winter.

And Twins outfielder Ben Revere’s father is an assistant football coach at Eastern Kentucky. Ben is thinking big this fall.
