Jake’s take on sports

Super Bowl Sunday is here


Posted on 1/31/15

Since most of you get the Republican on Saturday, we still have time to put in our prediction for Super Bowl 49 (and no, I don’t have time to figure out the roman numerals at the moment).  The line has been switching back and forth all week between Seattle and New England, so it’s rather hard to pick a favorite.  Las Vegas seems to think this will be a really close game, and we tend to agree somewhat.  But seeing what the Seahawks did to Denver’s high powered offense last year, it’s pretty to bet against them.  So let’s the score will be, I don’t know, Seattle 24, New England 17.  I personally like Tom Brady and the way he plays for the Patriots, so the outcome really doesn’t matter to me either way.  We just hope for a close fun game to watch, and that the balls will be inflated properly.

Lady Cards on a mad run to end their season
This coming week believe or not is the last week of the regular season for the Langdon-Munich Cardinals girls basketball team.  Due to many postponements the Lady Cards have four games in their final week of the regular year.  They play in Munich against Four Winds-Minnewaukan Feb. 2, at Grafton for a makeup game Feb. 3, at Larimore for another makeup game Feb. 5, then at home against the mighty Lakota-Edmore Raiders for Senior Night Feb. 6.  While it’s a crazy run for the Cardinals, it should no doubt get them postseason tournament ready.  Also shocking to believe that the District 8 girls basketball tournament in Cando is set to run Feb. 13-15.

Could we see an end to the Cardinals losing streak soon?
We will leave by encouraging you to come to next couple of Langdon-Munich Cardinals home games, as they are all winnable games versus New Rockford-Sheyenne Jan. 31, Midkota Feb. 3 and Bottineau Feb. 7.  If the Cardinals long losing streak will come to end, this would be the time it has the best chance to happen. New Rockford has two wins on the year, while Midkota is winless and Bottineau has five.  The Cardinals have been working hard to end a losing streak that goes back to 2013.  We will what happens this week.

“See ya!”  next week!
