Sports enthusiasts - good news: The City of Duluth is planning for the future of athletic facilities in the western part of our city. To get a sneak-peak, attend the open house scheduled for Tuesday, March 3 at the Wheeler Field House starting at 6PM.
I remember back in the day when I played baseball. Wade Stadium was like playing in the Metrodome or in my day Met Stadium. It was the biggest field in the city and it was where the Duluth Dukes played.
As I was watching a hockey game the other night I was missing my hero Wayne Gretzky. He was always a gentleman, always a competitor, always an ambassador for the game. I felt for a while, that when he left hockey went to crap, and so did most other sports.
Ever have a dream of being an Umpire? You know what they say, if you can't play you teach, if you can't teach you watch, if you don't know what the heck you are doing, be an umpire. Actually, no one says that.
I read on Facebook the people are starting to train for the half marathon and the full marathon. Some people have done this a million times some just starting this year and have questions. Carrie Tollefson, a 2004 Olympian, will host "Gearing Up For Grandma's" to answer questions about a wide array of topics.
With no offense to Walker-Hackensack-Akelyy, all eyes were on Chisholm and Bob McDonald last night, as the infamous basketball coach achieved his 1,000 career victory in his final season before retirement.
Team John Shuster hit the shots they needed to and Finland conceited the win in the 9th end with Shuster winning 10 to 4. Team USA now has 5 wins, tied for first with Korea, whom they beat, and waiting the results of the Czecks and Germany. Both teams with the same amount of wins going in to the last game.
Technology has changed so much in our lives. There are kids that have no idea some of the things they take for granted were once a tradition. It looks like this is another one that could change the way we watch sports.
Pancreatic cancer is the 4th leading cause of cancer-related death in the United States. 94% of pancreatic cancer patients will die within five years of diagnosis – only 6% will survive more than five years. 74% of patients die within the first year of diagnosis.

There hasn't been a Boxing match at Proctor High School in 50 years, to honor Carl "Cud" Peterson, there will be charity matches in the Gym. Carl "Cud" Peterson was a well known boxer from Proctor that passed away back in the 60's. He was instrumental in giving kids in the area an opportunity to get involved in athletics- specifically boxing.
In my opinion, if Christian Ponder hadn't had that killer game against Green Bay to get the Vikes into the playoffs, Tim Tebow would have had a better season. Viking critics are putting pressure on Ponder to live up to his firs round draft choice. Cue the mentor.
