And the patience to put up with the fans.Glad she found something that seemed more up her alley, I think she will do well in features. She wasn't a bad writer, there were some things she got wrong, but she wasn't nasty about it like Myron. Hopefully the replacement is fair, knowledgeable and has a passion for college basketball, someone who isn't a fan, but who has that passion for information that a fan has.
IALTO! She was brutal as a beat writer. Has writing talent, but heart just wasn't into Gopher BB (could be a function of an awful team to cover).I thought Amelia did an excellent job. Hopefully on to new and bigger things for her. Good luck Amelia!
I thought it was a nice touch at first, but she went a little too heavy with it last year. Can't totally blame her since she didn't exactly have a lot of positives to write about last year. So instead of writing a bunch of all negative stuff she wrote some negative and then talked about whiskey and Bigfoot the rest of the time.What Restaurants does Bigfoot like to patronize?
Seriously, I got tired of all the comments about whiskey, food etc in her basketball articles and chats.
At the risk of sounding like a conspiracy nut, I wonder if this new job is payback/a reward for having been harassed by MegaTongue - a "we'll make it up to you" from the Strib.
As opposed to the person who wrote the following?I thought she was way below average at best as a writer.
Whiskey and Bigfoot will only get you so far. If you're going to try to have an online personality, be more than a two-trick pony.I thought it was a nice touch at first, but she went a little too heavy with it last year.

Not sure if the payback/reward thing is true, but it wouldn't blow me away if that was a factor. When that stuff happens a company has to be very careful about how they handle the employee who was harassed. I think she has some writing talent though, and just more of an interest in the food/travel stuff. She's a better fit writing features than blogging.
Am not rejoicing, but certainly not going to lose any sleep over her decision either.
Who wrote that?As opposed to the person who wrote the following?
People from Minnesota do have accents. Go further north to Bemidji or Crookston and you will really notice it. I have relatives who have a much stronger minnesotan accent than others, but when I travel down to the southern part of the United States I am asked about the accent often and I talk nothing like the exaggerated version in Fargo but it is there.
