— Formerly “No Shirts Just Skins” —
The latest in Minnesota sports broken down from a fan's standpoint.
Eric founded MinnesotaSportsFan.com (self-proclaimed fastest emerging sports website in the state..). Brandon, being older and wiser, constantly needs to remind him he's not that big of a deal.
Different name but shirts are still optional.....
Ep 71: JC Tretter to Vikings? Twins Need Ace Pitcher... but How?
After some technical difficulties to start the show, Eric and Brandon caught their usual groove and touched on the Twins faltering and injured pitching staff and how difficult it is to get an ace pitcher with cheap mid-market owners.
Then gears switched to the Vikings and JC Tretter's reported interest in wearing purple. Would he be worth the price tag? What is the price tag? Looking back on the draft, Kwesi and O'Connell wanted Cine the whole time.
Ep 70: COVID Madness Hits Twins; Making Sense of Dave Benz Firing and Kwesi's First Draft
The Minnesota Twins are struggling with a COVID outbreak, which begs to question why we're still panicking over such nonsense. Eric and Brandon also hit on Dave Benz weird firing, Kwesi's first draft and laugh at how happy the Timberwolves were to accept their playoff participation trophy after losing in game 6 to Memphis.
Ep 69: Byron Buxton the GOAT, Elon Musk the Hero, Vikings at 12, the KAT Conundrum
It's the 69th episode of the Minnesota Sports Fan Podcast and we're celebrating with margaritas (Eric is at least) and talking all the major topics including:
- Byron Buxton's historic hot streak to start the season
- Elon Musk saving democracy when he bought Twitter
- We run a handful of mock drafts from PFF and see what type of options the Vikings could have at 12th overall on Thursday
- KAT's antics hold him back and drive people nuts but the Wolves need him on the floor
Ep 68: MN Sports Madness - Correa, Buxton, Z. Smith Bill Guerin and Wolves
The Minnesota sports scene is hotter than it has been in recent memory and the Minnesota Sports Fan podcast has it all covered. In episode 68, Brandon and Eric discuss what has gotten into the Twins and what's left to happen with the Twins. But the Vikings also signed Za'Darius Smith today, which needed a full segment. We also discussed Bill Guerin's massive balls and how good we should feel about the Wolves going into the playoff stretch.
Ep 67: We're Back Just Like the Wolves
Brandon and Eric are back and the world of Minnesota sports are on fire. In their return episode, they focus on the Vikings and Twins offseasons and wtf each team might be planning. Karl-Anthony Towns and the Timberwolves are the topic that closes the show. He's a new man and the Wolves have a new future of possibilities.
Ep 66: Richard Pitino knows he's done, Brandon hates KAT and Eric is nervous about the Twins
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 how the Twins make him nervous.
Brandon and Eric you betcha! With their genuine Minnesotan accents they review all the currents events of Minnesotan sports. Do you have to be a Minnesotan to listen, No, but it helps. Give it a listen! We just subscribed.
Lose the shirts
Brandon and Eric have 5 star chemistry. Their lightheartedness is a great way to balance your day, and Brandon's rants are the myths of gods.
Big Nose but The whitest teeth
