Normally, I can’t say as I pay much attention to the comings and goings of Vikings players. I mean, if they, mattered, they’d play for the Bears.
So the departure of Matt Birk to the Ravens doesn ‘t really affect me in the least.
Or so I thought.
Because while I could care less about the football, Birk’s departure might at least in part explain the shuttering of “Matty B’s”, Birk’s downtown Saint Paul watering hole, former home of one of the better happy hours in downtown.
Now it’s impacting me…
