Out On Black Friday? Catch Me On The Radio.

Black Friday might be the worst day of the year, as far as I’m concerned. You couldn’t pay me to get up at the crack of dawn to go to a store today. So when a colleague asked me to take his place today on "Sports Talk" from 1-2 p.m. on 970-AM WDAY, how could I resist?

In studio today – along with myself – will be sports writers Eric Peterson and Heath Hotzler. Our guest today will be UND men’s hockey writer Brad Schlossman from the Grand Forks Herald. He’ll discuss the Subway Holiday Classic tournament that runs today and tomorrow and features a field of four teams, three of which are ranked among the top six in the country.

We’ll also be discussing the real reason for the Minnesota Vikings’ success this season. And we’ll be providing our own Turkey of the Year candidates, kind of a spinoff of Patrick Reusse‘s annual column in the Star Tribune.

So tune in, and feel free to call as well. (701) 293-9000. That’s 1-2 p.m. today on 970-AM.
