Bacon, red meat and all processed meats cause cancer now. Don’t care.

What I DO care about is a long-form podcast talking Vikings and other Minnesota sports with Tom Schreier of Cold Omaha (with Di out sick this week). I chew the (bacon) fat with Tom about the outlook of the Minnesota Fightin’ Vikings, why the Stefon Diggs-vs-Odell Beckham Jr will be a debate soon, a remembrance of the late Flip Saunders, a beat writer’s take on Torii Hunter, and why the Vikings need to BRING BROCK VEREEN ON THE ACTIVE ROSTER AND START HIM OPPOSITE OF HARRISON.

Warning: This episode is primarily Vikings based but we venture off quite a bit into Wolves and Twins.

All that and other “We started Jim Bob Cooter” nonsense on this edition of the Purple FTW! Podcast!

Paul Feiner is a sports fan through and through. Minnesota sports, to be specific. Vikings, Timberwolves, Twins, Wildhe cheers for them all.

And it’s his love for the state’s teams that gave him the idea to create a Facebook page to bring all Minnesota fans onto one platform.

“I Love Minnesota Sports is a better way to follow all your favorite Minnesota teams on Facebook,” Feiner explained. “Only the best links and fan conversations. No ads. No fluff. True fans.”

The page started in June 2013 and grew immediately, attracting fans from all over. It currently has over 16,000 followers, and over 12,000 fans interact on the page weekly.

One of the challenges Feiner took on with the page was creating a logo that would be recognizable as well as versatile for the changing sports seasons.
