HINCKLEY, MINN. -- I guess if I hadn't covered the 2010 Vikings season I might find it odd that I'm sitting at a table in Grand Casino Hinckley getting ready to watch a fight card that will involve Ray Edwards.
However, given all the strange things we saw last season, this almost strikes me as normal. Almost.
For those who aren't making the trip to Hinckley, tonight's card will start at 7:30 p.m. There are five fights scheduled before Edwards takes on 34-year-old T.J. Gibson of Duluth in the main event.
Actually, there is a co-main event listed between Tim Taggart and Cerresso Fort.
I have yet to see what Internet access will be like inside the room in which the boxing matches will be held, but my plan is to provide updates on Twitter. You can follow me at www.twitter.com/juddzulgad if you're interested in finding out what happens when a football player takes up the Sweet Science.
Internet access and set up appears to be excellent in ballroom so tweeting and blogging should not be an issue for those of you who want to follow tonight's events.
5:48 p.m. Ray Edwards has entered the building. Wearing a red outfit, he seems very relaxed for a guy about to fight in 4 1/2 hours.
