The Weekend Kickoff with Chris Callaway
Friday night will be a very interesting night for a number of teams from around the Coulee Region, as a dozen local teams will begin their quest for Madison in the winner-goes-home tournament. I think that the area definitely has a good chance at being represented at Camp Randall by at least one local team, and here’s my take on the teams with the best odds of doing so.
Bangor (9-0) – The top-ranked Cardinals, who also just so happen to be the defending state champions, won’t necessarily breeze into the state finals, but they are sporting a defense that has pitched six […]

The Tomah Timberwolves (2-6, 1-5 MVC) travel to Veterans Memorial Field at UW-La Crosse to square off against the Central Red Raiders (2-6, 1-5 MVC) for tonight’s final game of the regular season. While five teams from the MVC will be advancing to the playoffs, both of these teams will be wrapping up their seasons tonight.
What to watch for:
The battle of young quarterbacks
Since filling in for injured Junior Quarterback Peter Brey, Sophomore Connor Prielipp has stepped up for the Timberwolves. While Tomah is only 1-2 since Prielipp has been under center, they were very competitive against the […]
I understand the Packers not getting too crazy with their Color Rush uniforms…

I get it. But how cool would this have been?
Yesterday afternoon, I watched in awe as a head coach actually had the gall to go for two after pulling within one point late in the game. The Oakland Raiders and the New Orleans Saints were involved in a shootout, and the bulk of the scoring came late in the game. The Raiders trailed by two touchdowns at one point, 24-10, following a 98-yard touchdown pass from Drew Brees to Brandin Cooks. From there, real actual NFL players named Jamize Olawale and Jalen Richard helped power Oakland back into the game, and Derek Carr found somebody named Seth Roberts […]
If there is one trivia question that I will forever know the answer to, it is “What day did Mark McGwire break Roger Maris’ single-season home run record?”
I’ll always know it because the date is easy to remember: 9-8-98.
I was 10 years old during that magical summer of ’98, when McGwire and Sammy Sosa enthralled the sporting world and beyond with their chase of Maris’ once-thought-to-be-unbeatable record. Sure, it’s been topped a handful of times since, but that initial race between the two NL Central sluggers is something I’ll never forget.
It was a time when I was reaching my […]
