“The Pacific Coast Conference had attenuated afterward the 1958 season, and the Big Ten Conference let its academic accord with the Rose Bowl bead as well. That season, the Athletic Association of Western Universities entered into a deal, and appropriately the 9-1 Washington Huskies catholic south to face the 8-1 Gophers, who’d accustomed an at-large allurement from the Rose Bowl.

Baseball was baron in Osceola in the backward 1940s and aboriginal 1950s. A playoff bold generally drew added than 2,000 fans. As a Vikings fan, I’m animated he didn’t stick to baseball.
“Keep up the acceptable work, BB. You’re the best affair in the paper.”
BULLETIN BOARD SAYS: Flattery — and a abundant old account — will get you everywhere!
Triple-the-Fun of Lakeville: “Al B of Hartland afresh reminisced [Sunday BB, 1/5/2020] about his adolescence Christmases.

DebK of Rosemount: “The aftermost decade concluded on a acerb agenda for Taxman, who had to address abundant of December 31, 2019, to removing sections of the canning-kitchen bank in adjustment to chargeless a brace of house-cat trainees trapped amid the studs.
“In the best of circumstances, Taxman is apathetic about my alternating efforts to accompany bodies into the house, admitting he capitulates every autumn to arguments for bringing in a bobcat or two. This year’s recruits, Marigold and Blanche, assume below absorbed in rodent-control than in spelunking. They absorb a abundant accord of time exploring the clamber amplitude below the mudroom, area we beastly association of the farmhouse cannot — will not — follow. It’s clear, nonetheless, that during one such babe adventure, they fell into the basement kitchen bank atrium as they catholic through the century-old belly of the house, thereby necessitating Taxman’s accomplishment efforts.
“Inasmuch as Taxman had planned to absorb New Year’s Eve day in his barn ‘study,’ absorption the nuances of John Wayne and Elvis movies and bistro Schwan’s ice chrism anon from the carton, he was uncharacteristically bearish as he pulled trim and sheetrock from the studs. My acclaim of his boldness didn’t cavity his funk. Fortunately, his affection brightened appreciably that evening, as he tucked into a arresting slab of prime rib able by the Astronomer’s Acceptable Wife at the Nininger estate.
“As luck would accept it, abiding home to analysis the charcoal of the canning kitchen afresh blurred Taxman’s spirits, which languished throughout New Year’s Day and ability accept fabricated for a roughish aboriginal anniversary of the new year except that on Thursday morning, we were summoned by Northfield accompany Euterpe and Hesiod for assignment as acting banquet guests that evening, the advised guests accepting absitively to host a gastrointestinal bug. Taxman’s affection animated anon at the anticipation of bistro Euterpe’s Cornish bold hens and sampling Hesiod’s bootleg wines.
“The black with Euterpe and Hesiod convalescent whatever was ailing Taxman. But, surprisingly, it wasn’t the baroque cuisine or the admirable wine (not Hesiod’s own, which is still crumbling ‘down cellar’) that put things right. No, it was Hesiod’s active call of his acquaintance with a bearcat trapped in the walls of the farmhouse he congenital with his own hands.
“Several years back, a decade or added afterwards Euterpe succumbed to the charms of a door-to-door salesman and purchased a behemoth Kirby cocked vacuum, it came to canyon that a abhorrent fetor abounding the Abode That Hesiod Built. It was the apparent balm of a putrefying beastly — not the affectionate of affair a adolescent can ignore. So Hesiod leapt into action, acid out baby sections of the best acceptable wall. Hesiod’s adenoids was a appealing fair guide, it seems, for afore too abundant of the abode was gutted, he begin the behind bearcat — a abrasion in an avant-garde accompaniment of decomposition. Alas, the rodent was lodged aloof out of Hesiod’s reach. Anytime accessible with a strategy, Hesiod accursed up Euterpe’s Kirby exhaustion and ashore the corrupt up against the antecedent of the trouble. The Kirby did not disappoint. Within seconds, the malodorous rodent was sucked through the corrupt and into the Kirby’s (patented) whirring metal fan blades, which anon angry the rotten abrasion into rotten abrasion puree. Hesiod letters that the pureeing action agitated the fetor by a agency of 10, at least. Without disposed to capacity such as unplugging the Kirby, Hesiod threw the apparatus (still effectively belching rotten abrasion fumes) out the avant-garde aperture and into Euterpe’s hosta bed.”
