As the children approach their father, once named the greatest enforcer in the NHL, Dani says in the background: “I wouldn’t get too close.” It is painful to watch — a raw, honest look at a man with flaws and demons, who had bounced in and out of rehab centers. Probert rolls on his side and looks totally out of it, his eyes closed, as his kids celebrate Christmas. The heart-breaking scene was captured in a home movie that is included in a new documentary, “Tough Guy: The Bob Probert Story,” which will premier in his hometown, … [Read more...] about Bob Probert movie a heart-breaking mix of pain and humanity

In the biking family, cyclocross comes off as a bit of a wild child — ready to get messy, take some risks, and do it all again if necessary. Right down to the messy part, that was the playbook last weekend in Crystal at one of the premier events of the Minnesota cyclocross season. The Fulton Star Cross is one in a series of weekend races that cyclocross riders have circled on their calendars when the season arrives in late August. By the time riders went over, up, down and around Lions Valley Place Park in Crystal, many had their bike legs. The weekend series began Sept. 9 at the All-City Intercontinental Championships at Theodore Wirth Park in Minneapolis. Sunday might have lacked Saturday’s free Fulton beer garden and the heckling that is cyclocross etiquette, but it had all the mud, grit and wheeled acrobatics.

They might deal with thick muddy sections, like they did … [Read more...] about Cyclocross in Minnesota is the right mix: Challenges, cut with good times.
