If they are provided are they free or do you have to lease them (and what are the typical monthly charges)? Given the option, would you recommend o...

Re: Local Broadcasting/Media

Hey I dont like LaPanta's style either (or Paul Allen's for that matter) I am just saying Frank needed a little caffeine in his diet because he sounded half asleep. He used to seem into the games, now he was as boring as the team was. If LaPanta is terrible like some predict, he won't be long for th...

Re: Local Broadcasting/Media

I'd like to watch a game next to someone that hates LaPanta to try and figure out what their deal is. I don't mind him at all. 1. He yells every time there is a somewhat aggressive play. It gets in the way of the game, if that makes sense. I don't want to be hearing him yell instead of watching the...

This isnt taco bell dude, this is real mexican food. Those three tacos might fill you up for the next three days. It takes me 3-4 days to finish the Chimichanga!

Phil Mackey is leaving KFAN to join Reusse from Noon - 2:00 on KSTP. m Honestly, I have no idea who Phil Mackey is so I don't know if this is a good thing or not. I do like that KFAN has some competition though. Phil Mackey sucks...one of those guys KFAN pimped but really never brought anything too...

Re: This might be a dumb question, but...

Yeah I know a lot of people like that...I used to get blue in the face explaining why that opinion is misguided at best but it isnt worth it.
