Hey all you outdoor sporting fans, lots of action going on this past weekend, with 2 events topping the news in my opinion. First, Bass Pro Shop is offering $5.5 billion to buy Cabelas, which seems logical and you might want to check your Cabelas card and use up your credits, but I’m sure they would be honored going forward. This whole deal might please some and not others, but it’s better than some of the sports’ news that’s out there.
Secondly, Team USA defeated Team Europe in the 41st Ryder Cup up in Chaska, MN at Hazeltine National Golf Club….many stories arose over last week and through the weekend, and USA prevailed 17-11 to recapture the Ryder Cup. In the words of our most famous local sportsman, Matthew Hudson, ” God Bless the USA, long live the Queen and thanks Danny Willett’s brother!”
I was fortunate to attend last Thursday and Friday for a practice round and the first round matches…..en route from our hotel to the course, we passed the new US Bank stadium and it looks impressive from the outside — it should for $1.5 billion or something like that. I watched a little of the game last night and the inside looks impressive as well. So here are the results for last night’s game:
Home team Minnesota Vikings — 24
Visiting team New York Giants — 10
Winning book # 5
Group 1 — Tony Goetz ( great supporter of the KC’s and all local organizations — keep up the good work _
Group 2 — Paul Blair ( seems to win his share of times — thanks for playing and sure miss the breakfast pizza at the Fast Stop)
Group 3 — Shirley Arkfeld ( I believe she’s new to the league so great to have you )
Congrats to this week’s winners. Have a great week everyone, and be careful on the roads now that harvest is pretty well in full swing. Til next week, enjoy the Fall weather!
