MINNEAPOLIS — Helmets and pads will be donned by elite athletes this month at U.S. Bank Stadium, but don't expect everyone to be wearing Vikings purple and gold. Minneapolis is gearing up to host its first Summer X Games, the top annual competition for action sport athletes to compete for gold and glory. Spanning four days, the competitors will race, spin and flip on skateboards, dirt bikes, motorcycles and BMX bikes in downtown Minneapolis and at the Mall of America in Bloomington from July 13-16.

Minnesota ranks 31st out of 32 teams in yards per game, including a league-worst 2.7 yards per rush.

ST. PAUL — It all started with a crayon. At least that was the rhetoric used during Thursday’s Minnesota Public Utilities Commission hearing regarding proposed alternate routes for the Sandpiper Pipeline project. The original route, along with the eight proposed “system alternatives,” came under fire from attorneys representing Canadian transportation company Enbridge, environmental groups and others, calling the routes on the table lines drawn on a map in crayon. The end result led the commission to vote in favor of deviating from its usual routine.
