NEGAUNEE, MI – The Negaunee Miners will travel to Gladstone to face the Braves in a non-conference battle to start off their 2013-2014 season.  After an impressive 14-6 (10-4 MPC) regular season that ended in a disappointing exit against rival Ishpeming, the Lady Miners will look to continue the excellent standard that they’ve set over […]

Can you feel it folks?  The playoffs are coming.  Whether you start this week or next week, they’re near.  If you’re like my buddies Jake & Deric, you’re probably getting desperate.  Now, both teams in their cases are pretty stacked, and have had just rotten luck.  However, if you’re in a 12-team league and on […]

I was able to attend the recent NMU Orchestra concert in Reynold’s Recital Hall on NMU’s campus.  The orchestra played all sorts of movie favorites from blockbusters like Lord of the Rings, Star Wars, & the Dark Knight franchise.  It was a great concert full of sounds that even the most inept movie watcher has […]

Throw out the names guys.  If people named Jaquizz Rodgers & Rashard Jennings were putting up the numbers that Ray Rice, & CJ Spiller were giving you, they’d be cut.  Now you can’t cut those two.  You just can’t.  You most likely invested a first or second round pick on them and are still holding […]

MARQUETTE, MI – It was a 6-6 game late in the second quarter when Negaunee had the ball on a fourth & 18 at the Boyne City 23-yardline.  Ryan Syrjala took the snap and rolled left running their trademarked option, with nowhere to go, he about-faced and tried to bring it up the field in […]

My dad was fortunate enough to acquire some tickets to yesterday’s Packers-Eagles game at Lambeau Field.  Now, as some of you may know, the Packers lost.  This is an unfortunate fact, but here’s the thing:  It still is one of the best things to do.  If you are a football fan, and have never been […]
