  • Pure Wow

    It\’s been 914 days since the last post on simpleprop.com.  It was my annual (at that point) Vikings preview for the 2014 season… let\’s not even talk about that. In these days of the rise of nationalism, Trump, Travel Bans, ISIS, Russia, and so on; what has finally gotten me off my ass to write…

  • 2014 Vikings Preview

    Before we look ahead to 2014, let\’s take a brief look back at 2013. 2013 was one of the more painful years of being a Vikings fan… well, one that didn\’t involve going to a championship game and losing… but I digress.

  • New State Fair Foods for 2014

    The Minnesota State Fair has updated their website with the new foods for 2014. In years past (2012, 2011, 2010 Day 1 / 2010 Day 2) I\’ve posted my thoughts on the food, and I plan to do the same this year.

  • 22nd Winter Olympiad – A Primer

    My first post about the Olympics dates back to 2002. At the time I was lamenting about the \”X-ification\” of the Winter Olympics. 12 years later my feelings haven\’t changed.

  • 2013 Vikings Preview

    After a surprising 10-6 season and a near record breaking year for Adrian Peterson the expectations for the Vikings are as high as they\’ve been in some time. Will 2013 be a year where the Vikings take that next step, or will they regress?

  • The Legacy of David Kahn

    I just did this in an e-mail to the other two yahoos on this site and it seemed like too much work to just lose in the ether. Good: + Drafting and signing Rubio (eventually) + Hiring Adelman + Signing Ridnour + Signing Pek (although, to be fair, he was drafted by McHale) Bad: +…

  • Propcast Part Deux: Electric Boogaloo

    We\’re baaaack. With another hour (almost) of fun Simpeprop tomfoolery and skullduggery… or something like that. Irregardless [sic] enjoy the propcast!

  • Inaugural Propcast

    Are you a faithful SP reader? Now you can be a faithful SP listener! Like many other blogs we\’ve decided to jump on the podcast bandwagon with the \”propcast\”. Now you can enjoy the unique humor of Wade, Alex, and wadE in audio format. This is our first of many, so bear with us as…

  • Food Inc.: Revisited

    Recently I watched Food Inc. for the second time. There was a quote that caught my ear from Joel Salatin of Polyface Farms. I\’m paraphrasing but essentially it was that when he is at the farmers market people come up to him and are outraged that a dozen eggs from his farm costs three dollars,…
