When Minnesota’s wrestling coach found out that a few of his athletes were dealing Xanax out of their dorm, he didn’t tell the university or the police. Instead, he took what was left of the drugs and made the offenders write a one-page essay about their feelings and what they had learned, the Star Tribune reported…
Yes, I get it, everyone’s doping and no one cares. About doping. But there’s a huge disconnect between what is happening at the top level of the sport and what is happening in my hometown, and I would guess, other people’s hometowns too. Which is running. Competition. Running races is fun and people care about it;…
I couldn’t get worked up about Monday’s Boston Marathon. After all, any American who might have been on TV ran the U.S. Olympic Marathon Trials in February, and is skipping Boston. So I followed this three-step program:
“We’re getting Minnesota with it,” the narrator of this year’s Minnesota high school hockey all-hair team video says, as the camera cuts to a plate of spam, lutefisk, and a lefse, which is then placed on a vinyl copy of Purple Rain. It somehow only gets more Minnesota from there.
Bethany Academy in Bloomington, Minn., held a fundraiser, and the family who raised the most money received the opportunity to take a half-court shot for a grand prize: half-off tuition at the school next year. Grace Ramey raised the most, but her mother Angela took the shot. The video is fantastic.
Aqib Talib is apparently an inspiration to youths all across this great land. During this game between Minneapolis North and Minneota High, North defender Antwan Cobble jabbed the everliving shit out of Minneota Isaac Hennen’s eye. North would go on to lose the Class 1A Prep Bowl 35-18.
The entire Drunkspin staff believes very strongly in taking an ethical approach to beer journalism. If there is one topic that comes up over and over again at our weekly meetings, it’s meatball subs, and if there is another, it is how best to maintain the high moral standards that have made Drunkspin one of the most…

We already covered everything you needed to know about Minnesota's high school hockey tournament, but here are five actual highlights—four goals and one save—from the games. Keep in mind that these kids are in high school.
The most glorious day of the year has arrived: The man known as "PulltabProductions" has determined the 2015 All Hockey Hair Team, a ranking of the best hair from Minnesota's high school hockey tournaments. It does not disappoint.
A Saturday playoff hockey game between Minnesota high schools Benilde-St. Margaret's and Eden Prairie turned into a line brawl with less than a second remaining.
Officials disqualified five Minnesota high school dance teams after their symbolic protest at the state finals over a rival team's alleged plagiarized championship routine in what was basically the exact plot from the classic and very great high school cheerleading movie, Bring It On.
A resident of Alexandria, Minnesota contacted the police earlier this month to report that someone entered his house and changed the settings on his PlayStation 4. Of course they did.
The Climax-Fisher High School (Minnesota) girls basketball team packed a whole lot into their 62-58 victory over Bagley High School on Tuesday. Most importantly, the win ended Climax-Fisher's 84-game losing streak. The streak was so long that, according to The Forum, it was head coach Jonathon Vonesh's first win with…
Two players for the top junior hockey league in the US have been charged with making and distributing child pornography after one of them secretly filmed the other having sex with a 15-year-old girl and then sent the video to a bunch of friends via social media, thereby becoming the literal incarnation of the phrase…
Pat Garofalo is a representative from Minnesota. He tweeted this. It seems like a questionable thing to tweet.
Since Minnesota loves hockey at all levels, the high school state tournaments are televised, with each kid getting at least a few seconds of camera time for the team introductions. For the past four years, a man has ranked the best hair—flow, salad, or lettuce, if you will—from those intros. It's a bit weird but…
Considering the camera's on this pair before the Kiss Cam cuts to them, the video must be some kind of stunt. The woman's reaction seems genuine, though. We won't spoil what happens.
That is a headline I just wrote.
