From the Sports Editor's desk

The sportswriters and editors at the Star Tribune were busy last week with their work — and with their nominating. I needed their nominations on two announcements coming before year's end: the 2023 Star Tribune Sportsperson of the Year, and the 2023 class of the Star Tribune Minnesota Sports Hall of Fame. Staff members are on the hook for these, but I'm also curious to know what opinions you might have. Who would you nominate for Sportsperson of the Year? (It's always fun to read through our past Sportsperson winners list, too.) And you can take a look at the Minnesota Sports Hall of Fame members (go here to see them), think about who's not in yet, and let me know who you think should be nominated. Send any ideas you'd like to

Have a great week, readers. Thank you.
