Back again with the latest on Minnesota sports: Wally Langfellow, the founder of Minnesota Score magazine and co-host of the “10,000 Takes” sports talk show; and Eric Nelson, the other host of “10,000 Takes” and the Minnesota Vikings reporter for CBS Sports Radio’s "Eye on Football."

Langfellow and Nelson took on the hottest question in town: Who will the Vikings pick to fill vacancies at general manager and head coach after firing Rick Spielman and Mike Zimmer at the end of the season?

They also talked the surprisingly resilient Timberwolves (and star Karl-Anthony Towns’s new side hustle as a game show contestant), the NHL’s decision not to send players to the Winter Olympics, and the Twins retiring Jim Kaat’s number 36.
