Thursday mornings at 7:45 we talks Sports on KAXE/KBXE.  Our regular team includes John "Big Sexy" Bauer, Kyle "smallies" Erickson, Fred "no hockey" Friedman and Heidi "MN Lynx Only" Holtan.  Today our senior correspondent Scott Hall sat in for Big Sexy.  The MN Lynx are in a small slump, and the boys are holding out hope still for their beloved MN Twins
