The S.S. Minnesota Podcast is a podcast around major Minnesota sports, mostly the Vikings, Twins, Wild, Wolves and Gophers. It's hosted by Eric Strack of minnesotasportsfan.com and Stephen Strom of the Strom Sports Show.
We're probably better at this than you are.
Ep.14 - The Cousins, Vikings, Fleck, Gophers, Worry Meter Episode
There are a lot of things to be concerned about right now in the Minnesota sports world. We’ve zoned in on the five most worrisome topics and rated them on a meter of 1 to 100. Kirk Cousins, Vikings, Fleck and Gophers.
Eric tries to stump Stephen with this week’s Random MN Athlete!
Ep. 12 - The Kirk Cousins Episode
We’re talking a lot of Kirk Cousins this week because the Minnesota Vikings season depends on the performance of their very controversial quarterback. Should he be mad at Mike Zimmer, Everson Griffen or others? Is he overrated or underrated? We talk about it all!
But that’s not it! We also dip into NCAA football and the Big Ten’s new “alliance” with the PAC 12 and ACC. Oh and the Minnesota Gophers season kicks off next week vs a little known team, Ohio State University.
Ep. 11 - Should Mike Zimmer Stop Talking to Media and Do We Believe the Gopher FB Hype?
SS Minnesota is back after a little hiatus and the fall sports season is just getting started! Eric and Stephen kick off the show talking Mike Zimmer’s -- even more brutal than normal -- honesty, but there’s a lot to discuss across MN sports.
Should we believe the hype PJ Fleck and the Gophers are selling? Does Bill Guerin know what he’s doing and what do the Wolves need to do to make fans happy this season? Oh, and Stephen quizzes Eric on another “Random Minnesota Athlete” segment.
Ep. 10 - Goodbye Nelson Cruz, Hello “Not Mandatory” Vaccines
SS Minnesota has reached ten episodes and it might be the best yet. Nelson Cruz has been traded by the Twins so Eric and Stephen comb through every aspect of that deal, plus other deals that could be on the horizon.
Then, we talk about the “not mandatory” vaccine rules in the NFL and how the rest of the world is dealing with the same type of “not mandatory” pressure. This week, Stephen quizzes Eric on the “Random Minnesota Athlete” segment.
Ep. 9 - Big Balls Bill Guerin Strikes Again
The latest episode of SS Minnesota is all about the Wild, after GM Bill Guerin bought out both Zach Parise and Ryan Suter on Tuesday, leaving the town in scramble mode.
Eric and Stephen dive deep into the when, why and how this all went down and what it means for the future of this team. Oh, and the "Random MN Athlete" segment this week is must-listen.
Ep. 7 - Byron Buxton Crystal Balls, Greg Gard Drama and a NCAA Dropping Socialism?
We’re back for another week of S.S. Minnesota and Byron Buxton is hurt again, already. What should the Twins do next with their injury-prone superstar? Then, WTF is happening across the border with Greg Gard and Badger MBB players? We’ll also talk about the changing NCAA and Eric screws up this week’s “Random MN Athlete”.
Random Minnesota athlete
This is the best segment in podcasting history. My critique would be Eric is too optimistic and Strom is too negative. Not sure if that makes for good podcasting but I enjoy it.
