This week in Minnesota sports: As the Vikings continued to search for new leadership, Catherine Raiche of the Philadelphia Eagles made NFL history when she interviewed for the open Vikings general manager position.

Plus: The Timberwolves actually kind of look like a playoff team, Gopher men’s basketball faces troubles with player availability due to COVID-19 and several amateur Minnesotan hockey players prepare to ship out to the Winter Olympics.

All that and more in another sports roundup with Wally Langfellow, 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."
