After a horrendous month of March, we can at least start to try to think about warmer weather, better times ahead and actual things on the sports calendar.
Gophers men’s basketball followers were prepared for one early NBA departure — dominant big man Daniel Oturu — but two? Carr's Instagram post sends an interesting message.
Roger Goodell distributed an NFL-wide memo saying the draft will go on as planned while warning that anyone who criticizes the plan publicly “serves no useful purpose and is grounds for disciplinary action.”
Jim Souhan and Michael Rand had a fun discussion on Wednesday’s Twins Insider podcast: What was the best Twins team of the last 20 years?
Game 163 from the end of the 2009 season is a good reminder that for every story of immense sports joy, there’s an equal reaction of heartbreak. Minnesota fans know the pain side of the equation all too well.
This assumes the obvious, that Kevin Garnett is the best player in Wolves history. If you want to debate that, you are on your own.
Every day, Michael Rand will provide you with three topics for your virtual happy hour — a concept that is probably starting earlier and earlier every day. Here's today's sampling:

Different people are responding to the coronavirus pandemic in different ways, and Diggs seems to have settled on this: He’s going to tweet through it.
With live sports crashing to a halt, Michael Rand will offer up a daily suggestion to watch from the past to fill the void: First on his list is a sweeter time for Gophers basketball.
On Friday, as the rest of the sports world was focused on cancellations, event postponements and entire major sports seasons put on hold, the NFL … continued to churn out news as usual.
For many of us over the last month or two, the term “coronavirus” has been humming along somewhere between the fronts and backs of our brains.
