Sorry for the inactivity lately. Here's the latest 5 Questions with Cortney of Style and Sports:
1. Favorite Olympic sport to watch and why?
"Well, I really love all of the winter games, but I'm assuming we're sticking to summer...and I'd have to say I've become a little addicted to the gymnatics. I've been rooting for Shawn Johnson, she's so adorable!"
2. Should the Wild commit to Marian for $8.0m per season over 5 years?
"Yes - and then if he plays the injury card for half the season, we can trade him for someone who will be a stronger contributor or to open up some cap space to sign one or two really strong players next summer. But it sounds like Risebrough is willing to offer quite a bit closer to $9M - and I'm not so sure that he's worth it. It's a tough deal for the Wild because a big name can be a big draw for retaining STH's, but at the same time they have to think about how much money they're investing in one player and how much he's actually contributing to the team on a consistent basis - and look at the other possibilities on how that $$ can be spent."
3. Better meteorologist name: Sven Sundgaard or Chikage Windler?
"Sven Sundgaard - His name sounds more sunshiney (and more Minnesotan)!"
4. Would you ever consider wearing white shoes past Labor Day?
"I don't really abide by the Memorial Day to Labor Day rules - but generally I would choose something in a winter white or cream between the end of September and mid-April. (I originally wrote a super detailed response to this question, but realized that it was more in depth than anyone would really care to read)"
5. Who wins in this cage match: Jacques Lemaire or Vin Diesel?
"Lol, I love Vin Diesel and caught part of one of his movies this afternoon, we must have espn or something. Lemaire is all about the defense...which probably isn't the best offense in a cage fight. So I would have to say Vin's the man in this one."
Thanks again, Cortney.
