Jake’s Take on Sports

The chill of an early fall and a Friday the 13th birthday

Posted 9/5/19

By Jake Kulland

We start this week wondering where our summer went.  The week ahead looks like we are barely going to make it 60 degrees, while harvest is trying to keep rolling in between rain showers.  With the miserable spring we went through a couple of months back, everyone was hoping that we would have late summer season.  While it’s not over yet, September is off to a chilly start, that’s for sure.  Also coming this week I celebrate a birthday on Friday the 13th.  Yes, I was born under a bad sign, and I will be looking for black cats and staying away from sidewalk cracks all week long.

Lady Cards looking forward to their home opener

This week will also bring the first home match of the volleyball season for the Langdon-Edmore-Munich Cardinals, as they will host a strong Thompson club on Sept. 12.  This will give everyone a chance to see the Lady Cards in action, as they have an equally strong team, and are looking forward to a very fun season.  They have some very lofty goals this season, and I’m sure a win over one of their biggest volleyball rivals in the Tommies is one of them.  It should be a great match to watch.

Langdon Country Club crowns Tuesday Mens League Champs

We say congratulations this week to Scott Stewart and Greg Goodman of Langdon, who won the Tuesday Mens League Golf League playoffs at the Langdon Country Club.  Stewart and Goodman defeated Ethen Askvig and Mark Busse for the title, in what we are told was a very competitive match.  Congrats to Scott and Greg, and we remind you that the course in Langdon will still be open for at least a month for some late season golfing.  And Tuesday Men’s Stag Nights are scheduled well into October.  Also if you haven’t picked up you Men’s League winnings (The yellow slips), they are all ready to be used in the clubhouse.

Our Fearless Vikings Forecast

We will leave you this week with our annual prediction for our Minnesota Vikings.  The Vikes begin their season at home versus Atlanta on Sept. 8, and hopes are high once again this year for a successful season.  As we say every year, our prediction is a 16-0 record and a Super Bowl title.  While that is most likely not all going to come true (Especially the record), we hope the Vikings keep our frustration level low (Also unlikely).  Their division is very tough this year, and they also have some extremely challenging interleague road games at the Chargers and the Chiefs.  But as always this time of year, hopes are high for every teams fans, and the Vikings are no exception.  Skol!

“See ya!” next week!
