Bringin' It: Wednesday's Top 5 Minn. sports storylines

Author:

In today's Top 5: Ponder hitched, Tark's advice, Heat too much, Love's tap and Perk & Pek....

1) Ponder, now married, true Man of Steele.

The happy couple reportedly eloped to Hudson on Monday. He went with a hurry-up offense, with no reception. (Yes, you've heard that one a million times -- but is it any less funny?)

2) Tarkenton to Vikings: Unleash Ponder.

Unleash Ponder? Didn't he just get married? Oh, on the football field. Against Houston Sunday. Now we get it.

3) Heat toy with Wolves.

Minnesota out-rebounded Miami 52-24 last night, but still lost by 11 points, 103-92.

4) Love: We need to get more physical.

After the game, Kevin Love said: "I'm not saying we're soft, but..."

5) Perk and Pek talk holiday traditions.

KARE/BMTN anchor Eric Perkins talks holidays with Nikola Pekovic:
