It only took 12 seconds in the first quarter to see that the record-setting Broncos were off their freewheeling game when center Manny Ramirez at the 14-yard line could not hear and snapped the football over quarterback Peyton Manning’s head for a rare safety.

View’s top stories, overused words of 2011

 

The Associated Press (AP) last week released its list of 2011’s top 10 sports stories. “Another View” has our own top 10, or what should have been the top local sports stories of this year:

The Minnesota Lynx: The only local major league team to participate in their respective league post-season. However, the Lynx went one step further — they won the WNBA championship in October, and the MSR proudly provided more coverage from preseason to All-Star Game, where a record four Lynx players were selected to finals, than any local publication. Faith Johnson: The longtime successful head coach this past spring became the first Black female high school basketball coach to win state girls’ titles at two different Minneapolis schools (North and DeLaSalle).
