St. Paul police trying to identify burglar who fatally shot dog, stole gun and silver bars – TwinCities.com-Pioneer Press01.12.22

Someone broke into a St. Paul home, fatally shot a pet dog, and stole an AR-15 gun and thousands of dollars in silver bars, authorities said Thursday.

A resident in the Conway neighborhood returned home from work Wednesday and found a broken window and dried blood throughout the home in the 2000 block of Margaret Street. He discovered his dog deceased in the basement.

The suspect was caught on home surveillance video using a shovel to break in at 9:45 a.m. Wednesday. After stealing silver bars valued at nearly $7,700 and other items, he shot the familys golden retriever on his way out, according to a Minnesota Bureau of Criminal Apprehension alert and information from police.

The BCA and police released surveillance photos of the suspect. Police described him as a black male with a tattoo on his right cheek, and tattoos on both his hands. He was wearing blue jeans, a black hooded sweatshirt with red lettering on the front, black and white shoes, and a black Chicago Blackhawks cap with a red brim.

Police are asking anyone with information to call them at 651-266-5867.

Minnesota Football: Crossing The Border – Q&A with Buckys 5th Quarter – The Daily Gopher11.30.21

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, we decided to break bread with our friends acquaintances over at Buckys 5th Quarter. Drew Hamm was kind enough to field our thoughtful and challenging questions ahead of the Minnesota Golden Gophers showdown with the Wisconsin Badgers.

Please clap for Drew.

The Daily Gopher: I dont want to waste your time, so Ill get right down to business: Do you or do you not have Graham Mertzs logo tattooed across your belly?

Drew Hamm: Despite being a bartender for over a decade, I actually dont have a single tattoo on my body. However, were you to drive by my house in suburban Minneapolis you would see Mertzs logo mowed into my front yard. Please say hi if youre ever in the neighborhood!

TDG: Twice this season youve admitted to being wrong about Mertz. Back in September, you said Mertz was bad. But now youre saying Mertz is good. Well which is it, and how am I supposed to trust anything you say after all this flip-flopping?

DH: Graham Mertz is... fine. He has gotten better since being bad earlier (WHICH WASNT ALL HIS FAULT!) and now hes OK. I am an excellent quarterback talent evaluator, I wanted my Philadelphia Eagles to draft Akili Smith over Donovan McNabb after all, so I think you should just listen to my most recent opinion because that will always be the most correct.

TDG: Okay, enough about Graham Mertz. Freshman running back Braelon Allen is red hot, operating behind a Wisconsin offensive line that seems to have overcome early season struggles. What has made the Badgers ground game so effective down the stretch?

DH: So there are multiple reasons why the Wisconsin offensive line struggled to start the season. Firstly, a couple of starters were injured during fall camp and didnt get enough time to develop cohesion as a group, which is why over the first few games of the season you would sometimes see hockey-style line changes with the o-line in the name of we have a lot of guys who earned playing time. You may notice that the Badgers lost a number of those early season games and, while they were against higher-rated competition, the fact that the offensive line was a bit of a jumbled mess was a key reason why those games were losses.

Since UW settled on an actual starting five for the o-line, things have been much better! There is still occasional shuffling due to injuries or OWI suspensions, you know... normal, shitty Wisconsin resident stuff, but it is mostly the same group out there. Allen himself has also gotten better as the season has gone on. Youll no doubt hear during the game that Allen is only 17 years old, so he still has a lot of room to grow in his knowledge of the playbook and game itself. With former starter Chez Mellusi out for the season, Allen is now the bell cow back and he has taken to it like a rich d-bag to Lake Minnetonka in the summer.

A big running back behind a big offensive line has been a Wisconsin success story for decades and this is just one more iteration of Barry Alvarezs dream.

TDG: The Badgers defense ranks in the Top 10 nationally in rushing defense, passing yards allowed, total defense, passing efficiency, scoring defense, red zone defense, first down defense, and third down defense. But they dont rank in the Top 10 in fourth down defense. Is it safe to assume this failure will lead to the ouster of defensive coordinator Jim Leonhard? Do us all a favor, Paul Chryst.

DH: The message boards have been ablaze with fans calling for Leonhards head due to his units repeated failures on fourth down. Even on threads that dont directly relate to it, someone brings it up and then the whole thing devolves into hooting and hollering. Its an embarrassment on an otherwise excellent defense and I, for one, am ready for the offseason defensive coordinator search that is sure to come after Chryst finally cuts ties with Low Energy Jim Leonhard.

TDG: So if I was looking for vulnerabilities in this Wisconsin defense, where would I need to look? Please tell me there are vulnerabilities.

DH: Yeah... there arent really any. The only one that is readily apparent is that this defense struggles sometimes with mobile quarterbacks like Nebraskas Adrian Martinez. Look it up, Martinez regularly has put up NUMBERS against the Badgers defense. Nebraska has never won any of those games, of course, but Martinezs personal stats are usually gaudy against UW. Tanner Morgan does not bring the same skill set to the table as Martinez and Minnesotas proclivity for running the dang ball actually plays to Wisconsins strength of stopping the dang run.

Early in the season, Wisconsin gave up some bigger pass plays over the top and the Gophers would be wise to try a deep ball or two to Chris Autman-Bell early and see if the Badgers secondary is paying attention, but UWs secondary has mostly plugged that hole. This will most likely be a low scoring affair as both teams defenses are better than the opposing offenses.

TDG: Give me your game prediction, and dont feel obligated to pick Wisconsin. This is a safe space.

DH: I think Wisconsin will win. I think itll be pretty close, with maybe a late touchdown by UW to make the final look worse than it was. Im never good with actual score predictions, but lets say something like 31-17?

‘The Bachelorette’: Who Is Lowell "LT" Murray IV? Instagram, Age, Job, and Spoilers About Michelle Young’s Cast Member – Showbiz Cheat Sheet10.20.21

The Bacheloretteis getting ready to kick off season 18 with Michelle Young. Michelle, a teacher and Minnesota native, will have 30 suitors to choose from. Lowell LT Murray IV is among them. So who is LT on The Bachelorette Season 18? Heres everything you need to know about LT, including his Instagram, age, job, and more.

[Spoiler alert: This article contains potential spoilers about Lowell LT Murray and Michelle Young onThe BacheloretteSeason 18 in 2021.]

LTs bio onABCswebsite says Michelles contestant hails from Bellevue, Washington, and we know that Michelle calls Minnesota home. This could be an issue in the long run if either is opposed to long-distance relationships.

According to ABC, LT says he doesnt have any real deal breakers and is more focused on finding a genuine connection in a partner. He wants to find someone who will appreciate his quirky sense of humor, join him on long walks and truly bring out the best in him. LT is a romantic at heart who, at his core, just wants to find someone with whom to watch old movies and exchange love letters.

A clip showed the men talking about their personal love language in a recent post from the official Bachelorette Instagram. When it was LTs turn, he mentioned both physical touch and words of affirmation. So, it looks like Michelle might have some flexibility with this potential suitor.

LT is 38 years old and has the yoga guru title listed as his job on his official ABC profile. After some basic internet sleuthing, we learned that LT is a personal trainer and a yoga instructor at Live Love Flow in the Capitol Hill area of Seattle, Washington. Right now, it looks like the fitness instructor is taking clients, according to hiswebsite.

ForThe Bachelorettefans who have been doing their homework, they may have noticed one particular detail on LTs bio on ABCs website. It says that LT has one tattoo his grandfathers initials over his heart. Usually, we wouldnt think twice about it. However, as we researched, we discovered that LT is the grandson of a Hollywood legend. Although the tattoo he mentions in his bio is for his paternal grandfather, our sleuthing led us to the discovery about Eastwood.

LT is the grandson of actor Clint Eastwood. LTs mom was given up for adoption at a young age, however, in adulthood, decided to seek out her birth parents. Once she found her birth certificate, it was revealed that Clint Eastwood was her father. After she tracked him down, he welcomed her and her family into his own. It looks like the crew has remained close ever since.

For those who want to take a closer look at LTs personal life,The Bacheloretteparticipant can be found onInstagramunder the handle @ltmurrayiv. His most recent post on Oct. 3 mentions how happy he is that he didnt get chosen to be the nextBachelor,and the photo includes him loving on his two Savannah cats.

Regardless, we cant wait to see his journey onThe Bachelorettewith Michelle Young. Season 18 premieres on Oct. 19, 2021.

Calderon: Love at First Buzz – The Whit Online10.08.21

The cool chair hit my skin, feeling as if I just laid in a pile of snow. Except, I was sweating. The anticipation of what was to come spiked my adrenaline.

The man asked me, Are you sure youre ready? I nodded and closed my eyes, and the noise of the tattoo gun filled the air. Suddenly, I was hooked.

Im from a small town in Minnesota and my birthday is in the beginning of December. This meant that finally getting my first tattoo was a bit of an obstacle (youll understand if youve experienced a winter there before). My mom had rescheduled my appointment three times before I forced her to take me, resulting in us driving in a horrendous snowstorm. It was worth it.

Of course, my mom gave me the typical talk beforehand.

Make sure its something meaningful, said the woman with the tramp stamp tattoo of her own name.

At the time, I had all the basic ideas picked out the infinity sign with a feather, the words forever young, and even the word ohana from Lilo and Stitch. None of those made it onto my skin, however. Thank God.

What stuck was a small outline of a record player. Music has always played an important part in my family and Is lives. I could go on for hours about my love for music. Which is why I chose the design. That, and it wasnt some basic music note.

After making it through the snowstorm, we were in the waiting room. I was sweating. I wanted to keep waiting. What if I pass out? How bad is the pain going to be? Maybe this is a mistake.

You can come back now, the tattoo artist said. This was it.

The artist placed the stencil on my left upper rib. I laid down on the ice-cold chair. I squeezed my moms hand much tighter than Id like to admit. My heart was pounding, and I was hoping the artist wouldnt notice the sweat hitting the chair.

I took a deep breath and tried to keep my breathing steady, that way the tattoo would be as straight as possible. He pressed his hand firmly on my ribcage and the buzzing noise ripped through the air.

The noise, the anticipation and even the pain was the perfect combination. The confidence boost that came with it was also addicting, however brief.

Within two years I got another. This tattoo was dedicated to the people most important to me: my mom, grandma and two sisters. I got flowers for all of them that corresponded to the month they were born and a flower for myself. In one pedal of each flower, I included their first and middle initials in their own handwriting to make it more unique.

The feeling was the same, maybe better because this session took longer. The confidence boost was different this time. People could see this tattoo and I got compliments on it almost daily, making me love it more.

I wasnt done. My next tattoo came out of boredom a year later. I missed that feeling, the sound of the gun and the pain of the needles. The idea of the tattoo didnt have much meaning, I just wanted something scandalous. It was probably how my mom felt getting her tramp stamp, so I got the word honey in red ink on my left hip.

About four months later, I was itching for another one. A whopping $160 later, I had my fourth tattoo, placed on my outer left forearm. The pain was so bad that my arm kept twitching. Still, the feeling was euphoric.

Ialso got two butterflies for my mom and grandma, who also have butterfly tattoos. I couldnt leave it at that, so I added a dragonfly for my step-grandpa.

One more wont hurt, right?

Peter Schrager’s Cheat Sheet: These Chargers have a new feel, and that’s good – FOXSports.com10.08.21

By Peter SchragerFOX Sports NFL Analyst

Welcome to the Week 5 edition of the Schrager Cheat Sheet.

Each week, I take a look at several things you need to know heading into the NFL weekend. This week, we tackle the rising Chargers, a new Cowboys star, the Browns' defense and more!

Lets get to it.

Are the Chargers legit? Is there a new star in Dallas? Peter Schrager gives his Cheat Sheet on the five things you need to know heading into Week 5.

1. Not the same old Chargers

I don't blame you if you're resisting "believing" in the L.A. Chargers after their impressive 3-1 start. Ask a Chargers fan with a Natrone Means jersey or a Ron Mix tattoo, and they'll probably nod their head in agreement. Fans of this team whether in San Diego, Los Angeles or parts unknown have been through too much and seen too many inexplicable defeats over the years to simply "buy in."

Chargers fans have real scar tissue. There have been not only years but also decades' worth of fast starts to a game, to a season, to a coaching regime followed by befuddling collapses, missed kicks and questionableclock management. Browns, Lions and Jets fans often claim they're snakebitten. Bolts fans have a case, too.

But the 2021 Chargers seem to be different. Hell, forget "seem." They are different.

And that's by design. When Brandon Staley took the job back in January, the first-year NFL head coach knew it was more than merely taking over a squad with a losing record. Staley, whom I've spoken to about this many times, knew he was going to have to change the perception around this franchise and kill some ghosts of yesteryear along the way.

He has done that, not only with a positive, steely demeanor but also with in-game decisions that scream, "We aren't the same Chargers you're used to!"

A case in point came Week 3 at Arrowhead against the Chiefs. The Chargers had the ball late in the fourth quarter, fourth-and-4, on the Chiefs' 30-yard line. Rookie lineman Rashawn Slater was flagged for a false start, making it fourth-and-9 at the Chiefs' 35.

I don't know what the analytics say, but it's probably something other than "go for it." But Staley went for it, the Chargers drew a pass-interference flag, and they scored the go-ahead touchdown seconds later. The call itself, in a vacuum? Probably nothing. But within the context of how the Chargers have lost games over the past decade and how they opted to punt on a crucial fourth-and-2 against the Chiefs in Week 2 last season? It was symbolic of what they want to be.

Fast-forward to eight days later against the Raiders, and it's a crucial third-and-2 in the fourth quarter, with the Chargers up only seven points after leading by 21 earlier in the half. Incomplete pass. Fourth-and-2 around the 50-yard line. What's the call? Field goal? Punt? Staley didn't hesitate. Justin Herbert went right to the line of scrimmage and completed a pass to Jared Cook to move the chains. Six plays later, Austin Ekeler ran one for six, and the game was over 28-14.

This stuff matters. Staley isn't here to merely not lose. He's here to win games. And the players are taking notice.

Here's what Joey Bosa when he wasn't speaking on Derek Carr had to say after the win Monday: "In years past, you come into halftime with a lead, and I'm like, Oh God. What are we gonna do this time to screw it up? I'm sorry, but it's how my mind works because it's just happened so many times ... I think we're coming together as a team. We believe in each other, and we believe in the coaching."

The Chargers take on another 3-1 team in the Browns this weekend. It'll be another test. Brandon Staley, I assure you, is not worried. And for the first time in what feels like forever, it sounds like his players aren't, either.

2. A new star in Big D

After the Cowboys' victory over the Panthers on Sunday, NFL Network cameras caught Dez Bryant in the bowels of AT&T Stadium complaining that they weren't selling No. 7 jerseys in the Pro Shop yet. Don't worry, 88, that will change soon.

Trevon Diggs has been more than merely a sensation. The dude might be the best cornerback to play for the Cowboys since Deion wore No. 21. What he's doing right now can't be undersold. On consecutive drives Sunday, Diggs picked off Sam Darnold to put the game on ice. He was the closer in a game that was getting oddly tighter than it should have been.

Diggs has an uncanny nose for the ball. The NFC's Defensive Player of the Month in September, he has an interception in every game he has played in this season, five total. He has eight in his first 16 career games. Dallas has long sought an elite No. 1 corner. Whether it was Terrence Newman way back when or Morris Claiborne in 2012 or Byron Jones in 2016, the search has been long and difficult.

But now here's Diggs, the 51st overall selection in the 2020 NFL Draft, with five interceptions in four games. The most INTs a Cowboy has had since 1996 when Deion Sanders got there is six by Anthony Henry in 2007. Diggs can tie or break that record this weekend.

The Cowboys have had a lot of famous players over the past three decades. They now have another one in Diggs, at a position where they've long coveted one, too.

3. Memphis: The new Running Back U?

You can have your University of Miami or Oklahoma or Ohio State. When it comes to finding the next great NFL running back, I'm looking no further than the University of Memphis. Now, the Tigers program has had a few great running backs in the past DeAngelo Williams, to name one but the past few years, Memphis has churned out one talented running back after another, perhaps more than any other school.

Antonio Gibson went 66th overall in the 2020 Draft and is now the clear-cut No. 1 RB for the Washington Football Team. Tony Pollard went 128th overall in the 2019 Draft and is half of what has been the best running back duo in the league through four weeks of the season.

Now, enter former Memphis star Kenneth Gainwell wearing the un-running-back-like number 14 who is tearing it up for the Philadelphia Eagles. Gainwell was selected 150th overall in 2021 and was so good in the summer that the team had him ahead of longtime NFL player Jordan Howard on the depth chart.

On Sunday, Gainwell came alive against the Chiefs, settingcareer marks in snaps played, targets, receptions and receiving yards. His nine touches went for 89 yards and opened the eyes of many around the league. The back from Yazoo City, Mississippi, got more touches than Miles Sanders down the stretch last week and showed he can block in the passing game, too.

You can have your Alabama or Wisconsin. Gimme the running backs from Memphis.

4. Cleveland rocks

Lost in all of the hysteria over Justin Fields' forgettable NFL debut was a shockingly impressive effort from the Browns' defense. Fields didn't sack himself nine times. He didn't throw more than twice as many incompletions as completions against no defense. Actually, Cleveland's D caused him and his Bears offensive line fits.

Guess what? The Browns did the same exact thing in Week 4 against the Vikings.

Minnesota was riding high after a big victory over the Seahawks in Week 3, but Cleveland's D made the Vikings' offense look pedestrian at best. Kirk Cousins was pressured on 55% of his snaps, and guys such as safety John Johnson III and rookie linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah pounded Cousins on separate plays even as he got passes off.

The offensive lines of the Bears and Vikings have been solid in other games this season. They looked inept against Cleveland. The Browns' D might be the best unit in the league.

It's a group of talented guys with big names, many of whom are looking to prove something. Myles Garrett wants to be seen as the top defensive player in the sport. He has been unblockable this season. Malik Jackson, Takk McKinley and Jadeveon Clowney want to show why they were once all viewed as top talents at their position. Then there are the stories behind guys such as Malik McDowell, Greedy Williams and Grant Delpit three players who've had injuries interrupt their NFL careers.

This offseason, general manager Andrew Berry wanted to make sure the defense got faster, longer and smarter. With the additions, including rookies Owusu-Koramoah and Greg Newsome, this defense is significantly better than it has been in years prior.

The Chargers await the Browns. Or is it the other way around?

5. Zach attack

Zach Wilson had three passes Sunday that showed exactly why he was the undisputed No. 2 overall pick in this year's draft.

The arm strength exhibited on the deep pass to Keelan Cole

the TD heave to Corey Davis

and the sideline beauty to Cole in OT were all truly impressive.

The Jets might not win too many more games this season, but this feels different than other years and other quarterbacks. None of the other young QBs before him have had the cannon that Wilson does.

6. Sports fans are everywhere

Every NFL team has a list of "celebrity fans," and as someone who lives and breathes this league every day, I can be a skeptic when I hear that term used. Does the guy make sure every Sunday is open so he can watch the team? Is she really paying attention in March and April or just showing up to the games in October? Celebrity fans can be hit or miss.

Not the case with Blake Shelton. The dude is a die-hard Cardinals fan, and with Arizona having a moment at 4-0, he is loving it.

I got to know Shelton, who is fairly busy these days and currently on tour, a few years back. Our friendship if that's what you want to call it is solely based on Arizona Cardinals football.

With Kyler Murray the QB (Blake's a die-hard Oklahoma fan, too), it's easy to focus on that one player. But Shelton has thoughts on Budda Baker, feelings on Jordan Hicks and the linebacker group, and real love and affection for GM Steve Keim and coach Kliff Kingsbury so much so that he invited them on tour with him last offseason.

I shouted out Shelton on Tuesday's "The Herd," and sure enough, minutes later, got this tweet in return.

The Cardinals are the hot team right now. Their "celebrity fan" is soaking it all in.

New father Miguel Sano plays against Yankees before taking three days of paternity leave – Minneapolis Star Tribune08.23.21

NEW YORK - Miguel Sano was asleep in the Twins' hotel around 7 a.m. Thursday when his phone began buzzing. "Everybody calls me 'The baby's born! The baby's born!' " Sano said. "I thought people were joking with me."

It's no joke Sano is a father for the fourth time. Danea, his third daughter, was born overnight in Minneapolis, about a week earlier than her due date. Both Danea and Sano's wife Daniela are doing fine, he said.

Sano had planned to fly home Monday, a scheduled off day, to be with Daniela for the birth. Instead, Sano played Thursday and homered in the Twins' 7-5 loss to the Yankees and will return to Minnesota on Friday, taking a three-day paternity leave that will extend to four days on Monday. The Twins will add a player on Friday to replace him.

Sano has a tattoo reading "Angelica R.I.P" on his right forearm in tribute to his first daughter, who died a week after being born in 2014 because of a heart defect.

The Twins added two pitchers before Thursday's game after using eight pitchers in Wednesday's 11-inning victory over Cleveland at Target Field.

Lewis Thorpe, who started Wednesday before leaving because of a sore arm, went on the injured list and Edgar Garcia was optioned to St. Paul today.

Pitchers Andrew Albers and Kyle Barraclough were called up from the Saints.

Albers, 35, is in his third stint with the Twins, and has also pitched for the Mariners and Blue Jays.

Barraclough, 31, has pitched in the majors for the Marlins, Nationals and Giants.

Garcia pitched in four games for the Twins, including Wednesday.

Drew Pearson waited a long time to get inducted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. When he comes across the stage Sunday afternoon in Canton, Ohio, to take the cover off his bust, Pearson wanted to make sure his signature Afro is showcased.

Pearson, the Cowboys great wide receiver, said hell have the largest Afro on display in the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Thats why I insisted on that. I didnt want a bust like this, Pearson said as he took off his baseball cap to show a bald head.

Nobody knows who this is. They know me from my playing days. When Tony Hill came into the league, he said, Man, I watched you on TV and you had the hair coming out of the back of your helmet. Your socks. That was a trademark. I was the first one to wear headband around the neck. Deion [Sanders] trying to claim that. I had to be cool out there. It wasnt like my neck was cold, it looked cold.

Numerous busts have similar trademarks, such as Kevin Greenes flowing hair, Warren Sapps cornrows and Ed Reeds large Afro.

When Sanders was inducted in 2011, he placed a dark-colored bandanna on his bust because he played with it the majority of his career.

Sculptor Blair Buswell looks at numerous photos of Hall of Fame players during their careers to start the process of making a bust. Buswell communicates with the subject throughout to make sure theyre happy with the finished product. But players dont actually see their busts it until the day they get inducted.

Buswell wont get to immortalize Pearsons two tattoos.

On his left forearm, theres a tattoo with the words Hail Mary 12 to 88 signifying his famous Hail Mary catch from Roger Staubach against Minnesota in 1975 NFC playoff game. The second tattoo, on his right forearm, is on getting into the Hall of Fame.

Waited 70 years to get a tattoo, he said. It was something to remind me of one of the greatest plays in Cowboys history and being a part of that and how the connection to my quarterback [Roger Staubach] to make it happen. I was going to get one before the induction and was able to get it right away.
