The Weekend Kickoff with Chris Callaway
Football Friday Night is back! After a high scoring Week 1, we head to G-E-T for a match-up between former Coulee Conference rivals!
We are happy to announce that we’ll be airing high school football games every Friday night this fall!

Catch Chris Callaway and Isaac Wenzel on the call a week from today, starting at 6:30 p.m.!
There was a time not too long ago where a playoff performance for the La Crosse Loggers seemed like a stretch, to say the least. Then, for whatever reason, the lineup started to click and all of a sudden the Lumbermen find themselves a half game out of a wild card spot, with a second-half title still within grasp.

With the MLB trade deadline approaching on Monday and the Milwaukee Brewers operating as bonafide sellers, it’s simply been a waiting game to see when Jonathon Lucroy will be traded. I think for him, it’s a matter of when, not if. For the likes of Will Smith (likely), Jeremy Jeffress (probably) and Ryan Braun (hopefully), I hope that David Stearns can pull off some deals and get some VALUE in return.

A second catching prospect to complement Jacob Nottingham
A corner infielder with some pop (Joey Gallo?)
At least two potential-to-be-MLB-ready-soon pitchers, and if one was […]
