Under the dome . . .

It’s a cold, brisk morning here in Minnesota. For this time of year, actually, it’s pretty balmy. The locals are walking around without their faces wrapped, and visitors aren’t afraid to leave their hotel rooms.

As usual, a few players from each team are down on the field warming up right now. The crowd is s-t-a-g-g-e-r-i-n-g in every so slowly. It is, afterall, an 11 a.m. game local time.

Want to take a little space here to say congratulations to my cousin Brett, who is getting married later this afternoon not far from here. We wish him and his bride the very best.
