As a Minnesota sports fan I am super excited for the next five days.

First of all, hockey is back with the Minnesota Wild and their season debut against the Nashville Predators at 7pm. You can watch it on NBCSN.

Next up, and the most exciting of the five days, the Twins start the ALDS against the New York Yankees on Friday, Saturday and Monday. The same Yankees that have been the thorn in the Twins playoff side for a long time now. Let's hope this time is different. At the very least I hope it's a competitive series. Friday is at 6:07, Saturday at 4:07 and Monday is still TBA.

Sunday of course if the Vikings at noon. They take on the New York Giants in New York. It's a game that some consider a must win given some of the games they have coming up later this season. They really can't afford to lose this one.

Come Tuesday, we could all be feeling pretty good or bad.
