We are thinking of driving from here in western CO to Green Bay to see my sister. Is it safe to drive through MN now that Lucas Davenport no longer has you folks under control?  :)

   What did I miss.   ???

Lucas Davenport is a fictional police detective in a series of John Sandford novels and movies based on the novels.
As of now they're on DOUBLE SECRET Probation!

  Sorry, my reply wasn't as clear as it should have been ... I have read a number of the Prey novels, but the way I read 57's post it sounded as though Sandford had decided not to write about Davenport anymore (or maybe killed him off). Hopefully he's still around.

He is now a deputy US Marshal instead of a Gopher cop.
Now Virgil Flowers and Guy Noir have to keep you safe  ;D

    That will give me something to look forward to as I work my way through the books. I'm just glad to know that he's still out there, although it might mean more work and less fishing for "that &/)#{*< Flowers".   :)

I think I've read one or two of the Davenport books... How does that series compare to the wonderful Virgil Flowers novels?

Since I'm a Cheesehead on the west side of Wisconsin - who's been over the Mighty Mississippi a time or two into the Land of 10,000 lakes - I've enjoyed all of those Sanford books and the familiar references therein...

I think Davenport series is just as good as Flowers'. Both are fantastic. It was fun reading the Prey books in order because that's where Flowers was introduced, and then when he got his own book that proved equally entertaining, it was great for fans.

For Jack Reacher readers, the full collection of all the Reacher short stories just came out too. Should be outstanding as the ones I've read were great. Same Reacher, deducing, kicking ass, saying little, just in tight stories.

Lucas and Virgil can't be all bad since they usually drink Leinies :)

Going for three in a row tonight when we play Collingwood at the mcg.

By the way, the Hawk in that photo, Billy Hartung, has the 11th best beep test result in the world. Aussie Rules players, apparently, have 8 of the top 17 results in the beep test.  It's a sport that demands speed, direction changes and endurance. Almost designed for high beep test results, it seems.

Nice story about a future Johnnie.  Sounds like a good kid and great son!

What's everyone's thoughts on the increasing amount of out of state players coming to play in the MIAC? Good for the MIAC?

For me, I hope the Tommies stick to their strong base of Minnesota kids that have gotten them to where they are.  If other teams need to go to California, Texas, and Florida to compete in the MIAC, then I guess their relationships in the state of Minnesota are not very strong.

Keep practicing. Your post's troll level is rated N for novice.
