Rushin Mafia

The Star Tribune yesterday had a funny profile of Steve Rushin, the Bloomington native and columnist for Sports Illustrated, on the occasion of his new book. The husband of former college basketball star Rebecca Lobo, Rushin tells the Strib of his penchant for inserting Minnesota references into SI- "a tribute to Supreme Court justice and former Viking Alan Page here, a reference to Wally the Beerman there."

I of course can relate a lot to Rushin- he's a writer from Minnesota named Steve who now lives on the East Coast, and has as his partner a woman named Rebecca who went to a Big East school and is just as sports-obsessed as he is. Can I take over "Air and Space" when Rushin retires?
