If you're a big sports nut like myself, you will be relieved to hear this news. The Sioux Falls Pro Image in the Empire Mall is NOT closing its doors.

I was in the mall over the weekend and noticed the shelves inside the Pro Image were starting to look a little barren. Then I noticed a big store liquidation sign hanging in the window. The sign read everything must go, all sales are final. When you see something like that, it's typically synonymous with a store that is about to go out of business.

Come to find out, that is not the case in this situation.

A huge relief to a sports fanatic like myself. I have a house that is filled full of sports team apparel and collectibles, so needless to say I was happy to hear I will not be losing one of my favorite go-to locations to purchase these types of items.

On Sunday, I reached out to the store, the employee on duty informed me they're in the process of going through an ownership change and are simply liquidating their current inventory.

Word has it, the ownership change should take effect in late January, or sometime in early February. Once it does, the store will close for a very brief period while they re-stock and get ready to re-open for business once again under the same name, in the same location.

So no need to worry sports fans, Sioux Falls will still have a place in the Empire Mall to score that hat, jersey, sweatshirt, or other pieces of sports apparel, and sports memorabilia from your favorite team.

Minnesota Vikings In The Super Bowl? Yep, I Can Remember All Four

It's that time of year, the time when everyone is talking about the NFL's upcoming Super Bowl.

It may be hard to believe, but there was a time when the Minnesota Vikings went to the Super Bowl.

And then they went again. And then again. And then again. Hey, we were one of the greatest teams of all time!

Unfortunately, it was the same time the Vikings lost the Super Bowl. And then again. And then again. And then again. Well, at least we must have been one of the second-best teams of all time!

For a whole lot of Vikings fans...you know, the ones who walk around with younger bones...the Vikings have never been to the Super Bowl.

Then there's the ol' dog that is me. I remember the first time... and the second... and the third... and the fourth.
