RandBall

Michael Rand started RandBall with hopes that he could convince the world to love jumpsuits as much as he does. So far, he's only succeeded in using the word "redacted" a lot. He welcomes suggestions, news tips, links of pure genius, and pictures of pets in Halloween costumes here, though he already knows he will regret that last part.

Aaron Rodgers and Olivia Munn don't have sex on game days

Posted by: Michael Rand Updated December 12th at 3:42pm 285656841

rodgersmunnJust going to leave this right here and walk away. We didn’t need to know this about Aaron Rodgers and Olivia Munn, but now we do know.

Asked by Andy Cohen on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live about sex on Packers game days, Munn said it doesn’t happen.

“No we don’t. Not on game day,” Munn said. “There’s not a rule. It just doesn’t happen because there’s other things to focus on.”

But the whole no-sex-on-game-days thing isn’t a superstition. It just doesn’t happen.

“I try to have sex as much as I can,” Munn said.

Nuclear Wessel: Your weekly dose of EPL soccer and scorching hot takes

Posted by: Michael Rand Updated December 12th at 2:10pm 285646021

nuclearDana Wessel produces the K-TWIN Morning Show with Rider and Rena Sarigianopoulos on 96.3 K-TWIN Monday-Friday 5:30am-10:00am.

———–

Hope you got your Ove-Gloves on at your computer while you read this, because this edition of Nuclear Wessel is about to get hot.

Funny how sports work in the 2014 hot take, 24/7, clicks-are-gold news cycle.

Two weeks ago you saw the headlines/tweets like this: ARE CHELSEA THE GREATEST TEAM TO EVER KICK A SOCCER BALL AND WILL THE CLUB EVER LOSE A MATCH FOR THE REST OF ETERNITY?!

Now this week: HAS MOURINHO LOST THE PLOT AT CHELSEA? CAN THEY OVERCOME THIS HARDSHIP OR WILL THEY FOLD THE CLUB ENTIRELY AND TURN STAMFORD BRIDGE INTO THE WORLD’S LARGEST PETTING ZOO?!

As we say every season in every sport, it is a marathon, not a sprint*. An eight point lead in November isn’t insurmountable and the fact that it is down to three points shouldn’t come as a shock to any rational person.

*except the 100 meter dash. That, literally, is a sprint. No time time for error there. Just gotta kinda bust-buns all 100 meters.

So the title race is back on! Just as it always has been. Chelsea remain up on City by three points. Meanwhile, the race for the top four is starting to take shape with Manchester United showing they are serious about a return to Europe.

A fun slate of matches ahead, highlighted by the always-controversial Manchester United/Liverpool battle to the death. Enjoy!

No. 1: Chelsea vs Hull City at Stamford Bridge

When: Saturday at 8:00am on NBC Sports Network

Last year: Clinical 2-0 win last year for the Blues against Hull. Oscar and Lampard both scored goals inside of 25 minutes to put the Tigers away early at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues rebounded nicely from that shocking 2-1 loss to Newcastle by winning at Sporting midweek in Champions League. A 3-1 win in a match where they didn’t need to win (they already clinched their group) and rested John Terry, Eden Hazard and Willian. Just what the Blues needed before heading back into league competition.

Hull City aren’t finding much love in their first season back in the top flight since 2009-10. They have won just two matches and sit in 18th place with just 13 points. Their last win came back on October 4th against Crystal Palace and they have lost four of their last six.

The Blues are heavily favored in this one, and deservedly so. Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 10 against the Tigers, winning eight of those matches. Also, they have never lost to Hull City in the Premier League.

Best case scenario for Chelsea is they cruise to a comfortable win and get Diego Costa a goal or two. The big man has struggled as of late and even Mourinho has called out his fitness a bit. Him scoring goals by the bunch is a huge key to Chelsea’s season and they can’t have him fading before the New Years ball drops.

Best case scenario for Hull would be to nick a goal early and then sit back, defend and pray they can at least steal a point. All signs point to the Blues taking all spoils, however.

No. 2: Arsenal vs Newcastle at Emirates Stadium

When: Saturday at 10:30am on NBC Sports Network

Last year: Stroll in the park last April for Arsenal against Newcastle. Three goals, a clean sheet and three points for the Gunners at the Emirates.

Arsenal enter a crucial two-week stretch here where they play Newcastle at home and Liverpool at Anfield next Sunday. And they will do so with one healthy half-back. Good times!

Arsene Wenger is going to have to get creative Saturday against a Newcastle team that has shockingly won seven out of their last nine games. Seriously. How has this happened? Newcastle fans were on the verge of burning their stadium down and kidnapping Alan Pardew and now they just knocked off Chelsea and sit level on points with Arsenal in 6th place.

Speaking of Alan Pardew, he had a troll-job on par with the Target Center this week. The group of Arsenal fans that somehow think they are better than the ‘finish top-4/make Round of 16 in Champions League’ plateau they have settled on and want Wenger to be fired have never been louder. So what does Pardew say? He backs Wenger and says they should name the bleeping stadium after him. I love it. And don’t really disagree with him either.

But don’t expect Newcastle to cruise to victory just because Wenger is going to have to play some defenders out of position. Jak ‘I am too cool for the letter C’ Alnwick is making his first ever Premier League start in goal. Poor dude doesn’t even have a Wikipedia page. I wanted to look up some obscure fact about him to make fun of him but he doesn’t even have a Wiki. Pretty sure even Rand has a Wikipedia page (editor’s note: Nope, but that is something we would like for Christmas). So that’s why I ripped him for the spelling of his name. I am versatile like that.

Traditionally, Newcastle have just been dreadful against Arsenal with only two wins in the last decade against the Gunners. Plenty of factors working against both teams so a draw is a likely result but I’ll give Arsenal the home-nod to take all three points.

No. 1: Manchester United vs Liverpool at Old Trafford

When: Saturday at 6:30am on NBC Sports Network

Last year: Liverpool beat United 3-0 at Old Trafford last March in a match full of controversy (shocking, given the two teams). Steven Gerrard bagged a brace the only way he can these days — with a pair of penalties. He had a chance to complete the penalty hatty but missed. Luis Suarez got the third in the 84th minute. The ‘Moyes Out’ movement picked up plenty of steam that afternoon.

Alright, you ready? Lets spin the WHEEL…OF…RIVALRY CLICHES!!!!

***Click, Click, Click, Click, Click, Click, Click, Click, Click, Click***

And it lands on….YOU CAN THROW THE RECORD BOOK OUT THE WINDOW WHEN THESE TWO PLAY!

Dang. I had my heart set on ‘You wanna talk about two teams that don’t like each other?’

But all jokes aside, you can throw the record book when Manchester United and Liverpool play because these are two teams that don’t like each other.

Liverpool really Liverpool’d themselves on Tuesday when they got knocked out of Champions League at home by Basel. All they had to do was beat Basel at Anfield. Instead they fall behind by a goal, have a sub get sent off after 15 minutes and fail to capitalize on a Steven Gerrard equalizer for the ages. Now they have to trudge through the Europa League and the seemingly 87 matches in weird stadiums that go along with it. They can’t just sluff it off, either, because the winner of the competition now earns a spot in next year’s Champions League. And, lets be honest, that is probably their best shot at qualifying at this point.

United, on the other hand, have put themselves in great shape to land one of the coveted top four spots. They looked like burning dog dung on Monday against Southampton but still managed to get a 2-1 win. That is the type of thing that United failed (horribly) to do under David Moyes. Earning points even when they play horribly. It is what the good teams do. But they will actually need to put together some good performances and win games comfortably if they are to reclaim what they believe to be their rightful place in Europe.

It’s funny, these two sides have basically flipped spots in just one year. Last season, it was Manchester United falling out of top four contention and having a miserable season while Liverpool was charging up the table to reclaim a Champions League spot. Now, Liverpool, a year after finishing second find themselves in 9th almost midway through the season. And United, after finishing seventh last year sit in 3rd right now. Flippy-floppy!

Not expecting a lot of fireworks in this one. Wouldn’t be surprised if there were more red cards than goals. I say it will be 1-0 to the home side.

Alright, companions. That’ll do ‘er for this week. Enjoy the matches and don’t be afraid to go outside and fire up the grill during this unseasonably warm weather.

Until next week, keep your balls chipped and your runs to the far post.

Friday (Our last-minute application to be Badgers football coach) edition: Wha' happened?

Posted by: Michael Rand Updated December 12th at 10:05am 285616231

barry alvarezBy all accounts, former Wisconsin assistant Paul Chryst is on the verge of returning to the school as the head football coach, quickly filling a vacancy that opened earlier this week when two-year coach Gary Andersen bolted for Oregon State.

But before Barry Alvarez makes a hasty decision, we wanted to suggest one other candidate: Us.

We were browsing the official application for the Wisconsin head coaching job, and it sounds as though we could be — as Alvarez calls it — a good fit.

Here are some of the highlights:

Qualifications: 

Bachelor’s degree required. Boom! University of Minnesota, Class of 1999, five great years. Keeping it in the Big Ten.

Minimum of 5 years of successful collegiate football coaching experience preferred. Division I head coaching experience is also preferred.Division I head coaching experience is also preferred. Preferred, yes, but not required. That’s fair, and that doesn’t take us out of the running. It seems as though Alvarez and Wisconsin know that it’s not fair to exclude newbies. How can you become a college football coach if you’ve never had experience … but how can you get experience if you’ve never been a college football coach? Chicken and egg.

Other qualifications include the ability to work cooperatively with diverse groups and administrators, faculty, staff and students. If the Star Tribune newsroom hasn’t prepared us for this, it hasn’t prepared us for anything.

The successful applicant must be able to develop and implement innovative approaches and solutions; work well independently and in teams; and be flexible in accepting new responsibilities. We’re not sure if Alvarez read yesterday’s guest post, but this blog has been around for eight years now. Innovative? You bet. Do we work independently? Sure! Do we collaborate? Of course! New responsibilities? Always adding something new! And that’s just a fraction of what we do at work.

Conditions of Appointment:

This is a Limited appointment. Salary will be assigned within the appropriate range, commensurate with the candidate’s qualifications and experience. An excellent benefits packageis also included. Anticipated start date on or after December 17, 2014

We’re totally flexible here, and we can assure you that the staff we would assemble — mostly RandBall commenters, lets be honest — won’t grouse about salaries. A full 60 percent would probably work for beer and chicken wings. One guy for sure would work solely for Replacements bootlegs. We have a vacation planned during national signing day, but we’d be willing to fly in for the news conference if necessary.

In any event, we hope Alvarez will give it some thought before rushing into anything with Chryst. He’s a fine candidate, but we’re not sure what he brings to the table that we don’t.

TFD: Ex-Twins pitcher Juan Berenguer files lawsuit alleging violation of privacy

Posted by: Michael Rand Updated December 11th at 10:38pm 285549501

Former Twins pitcher Juan Berenguer has joined a growing contingent suing local entities — many of which are law-enforcement agencies — for what they say is a misuse of the state’s drivers license database.

In a suit filed this week in U.S. District Court, it is alleged that “personnel from various entities in Minnesota illegally obtained Berenguer’s private, personal and confidential driver’s license information without a legitimate or permissible law-enforcement purpose or any other lawful purpose.” The suit says his private information was viewed more than 125 times between 2005 and 2011, in violation of the federal Driver’s Privacy Protection Act.

More than 35 entities, including the City of Minneapolis, are listed as defendants on the suit.

Berenguer (pictured in a 2006 Star Tribune file photo)berenguer, who played on the 1987 World Series team with the Twins and remained in the Twin Cities after his playing career ended, is represented by Jonathan Strauss from Sapientia Law Group PLLC, which is representing more than 30 other people who have filed similar claims. Many plaintiffs in similar cases “are women and include former police officers, TV news readers, and ex-partners of public employees,” as noted in this February Star Tribune story.

“People were looking him up because they’re interested in him as a former Minnesota Twin,” Strauss said in a phone interview Thursday, noting that he believes Berenguer is the first plaintiff in these cases who is an athlete or former athlete. “He’s (also) had incidents of police following him for no reason, and he’s really angry about it.”

The last part of that quote from Strauss is in reference to a part of the suit that reads:

“On several occasions over the last decade, Berenguer has been followed by sheriff’s deputies from Carver County in their patrol cars. … In each of these instances, Berenguer was not pulled over or stopped by the law enforcement. These are examples of law enforcement having special interest in Berenguer as a local celebrity, not because he has violated any laws or needed law-enforcement assistance.” The suit says this made Berenguer feel “like a prisoner in his own home.”

The lawsuit seeks multiple forms of financial damages, including “at least $2,500″ for each of the more than 125 alleged violations of the Driver’s Privacy Protection Act.

Strauss said he anticipated the next move will come from the defense, which will attempt to have the case dismissed.

“We’ll see what the judge says,” Strauss said. “We think (Berenguer) has a very strong claim.”

Guest post: Jon Marthaler wishes RandBall a happy 8th blog birthday

Posted by: Michael Rand Updated December 11th at 2:55pm 285531911

randballUnofficial/official RandBall historian Jon Marthaler has taken it upon himself, once again, to write a guest post commemorating our blog birthday. It was eight years ago when we started RandBall. Where does the time go? No, really. We’d like it back. If you see it, send it to us in an unmarked envelope.

Every year Jon comes up with a different spin on the blog history. This year’s effort particularly amused us. Jon?

————-

It’s the eighth birthday of RandBall! EIGHT! I don’t know how many people are aware of this, but when Michael started writing this blog, he was just fourteen years old. He has aged in blog years, and now, at age 52, spends his days complaining about millennials, watching the Big Ten Network, and telling people off on Twitter.

Yes, Mr. Rand is truly on the way to becoming Sid, just like we’ve long predicted. He’s already started recording his interviews on an ancient tape deck; soon, he’ll give up on the blog, and assign his Twitter to some intern, and start breaking some REAL news on Page 2, the way that Joseph Pultizer intended.

With that in mind, we should probably enjoy RandBall while it’s still around. Here’s an increasingly-unlikely list of things we have to look forward to in 2015, the blog’s ninth – NINTH! – year:

  1. The comments get turned off, temporarily
  2. Stu starts writing the blog every day
  3. RandBall starts appearing in print advertisements holding a basketball, just like old times
  4. Rocket starts writing a new hockey-themed post, only to be banned by Star Tribune higher-ups due to some unfortunate and ill-timed comments about somebody’s mom
  5. Yet another argument about buffalo wings escalates into Aaron Gleeman smashing a bottle of Frank’s Red Hot sauce over Michael’s head
  6. The comments get turned off, forever
  7. After RandBall’s fourteenth consecutive day writing about the Wolves during a Wild winning streak, a caffeine-crazed Michael Russo cross-checks Rand into the wall during a newspaper happy hour
  8. Rand quits the paper to pursue his dream job: the 1am-5am weekend slot on The Current
  9. A physical altercation ensues over who is really responsible for the enduring delightfulness of Nuclear Wessel
  10. RandBall draws an ESPN-style three-week social-media suspension for calling Brian Stensaas a completely unprintable slur, relating to a 1985 UND-Wisconsin donnybrook at the Dane County Coliseum
  11. The RandCast makes its return to the airwaves
  12. The blog pauses for a brief but heartfelt celebration, following the Twitter identification of the 500th person who looks a lot like RandBall
  13. Jeff Brady calls back
  14. John Sharkman starts writing the blog every day
  15. Aaron Rodgers flips Stu’s hat off his head, a la Matt Kalil
  16. RandBall quits to, quote, “Spend more time with my four enduring loves: My wife, my daughter, my pug, and of course my nearly-worn-out cassette compilation of LFTR PLLR B-sides”
  17. Michael finally gets his own KFAN show, tentatively titled “The Brett Favre / Johnny Manziel Old-Timey Radio Hour”
  18. RandBall adopts Dana Wessel’s hairstyle
  19. Michael goes on sabbatical after being knifed by Manny Lagos in a Blaine back alley
  20. Ken Chia starts wearing a cardigan and writing a blog, leading to an unfortunate, “Single White Female”-style incident in which he unsuccessfully attempts to replace Michael’s Page 2 column and headshot with his own
  21. The Great Baseball Road Trip visits no baseball games, instead choosing to spend four days sitting in a parked car in front of Dale Murphy’s house
  22. There is another Redactular, anywhere in the Twin Cities
  23. Clarence Swamptown starts writing the blog every day

It should be a great year! Happy birthday, RandBall! Here’s to years more of tremendous entertainment!
