This Saturday's Vikings-Packers game 105 is the topic, but Sage drops a great plug for ISU sports before signing off. The remainder of the hour is a great listen as well, including an interview with legendary Packers broadcaster Wayne Larrivee.
"Never give in ... except to convictions of honor and good sense. Never yield ... to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.Ē ― Winston Churchill
ďUrgency,Ē Rhoads said. ďThatís exactly what I told our staff. Itís exactly what I told our players. Urgency in getting your job done. Thatís in a 100 percent rate of speed at executing your responsibility ó whether itís a fit, whether itís a tackle, whether itís a route, whether itís a cut-off block. Everybody needs a little bit more urgency in coaching and playing.Ē
Sage was back on the Paul Allen show this week, along with Paul Charchian (of Fanball.com fame), to reflect on the Vikings being bounced from the playoffs. In segment 2 (@ 18:12) Sage cuts open a vein (or as close as a respectable northerner would come to that) about his stints with the Vikings, and in segment 3 (@ 32:00) joins the discussion about this weekend's NFL matchups. Many of us in these parts like to think the Vikings would have advanced to San Francisco had Sage come off the bench rather than Joe Webb. While Sage wouldn't come right out and say that, you know he was thinking it.
Don't know if Sage has another comeback in him or not, but hope so. On the other hand, I am thankful Sage has been spared the fate of living out his life recovering from brain injury. As it is, maybe he has some future on radio?
