It’s doubtful the Legislature will hold a special session to pass a law declaring Thursday a local holiday. So if you’re stuck at work and can’t watch the Gophers vs. Middle Tennessee (3 p.m. tipoff), a strong option to consider is following the live blog I’m hosting on startribune.com.

WATCH THIS

If you managed to get the afternoon off or are able to subtly add a meeting from 3-5 p.m. on your Outlook calendar, however, you’ll find the Gophers game on TNT.
