Google Amigos Tortilla Bar in Key West, go to TripAdvisor and scroll down to the review that says, “Keep away if you can.” One of the owners of the restaurant executed the verbal equivalent of a jackknife powerbomb on this naysayer, eviscerating his half-baked critique of the restaurant point by point, every TripAdvisor reader thrilled to sit ringside at the Thunderdome. Online review sites can be the Wild West, but at least temporarily there was a new sheriff in town and he was sick of all the balderdash.Touche, sir.Amigos Tortilla Bar opened in Key West in 2010, a small, lively, crowded place for tacos, quesadillas and such.

Before the NBA career, before the lengthy second act as a Minnesota Timberwolves television analyst and Minnesota Lynx assistant coach, Jim Petersen was an exceptionally big deal in basketball in the state of Minnesota. Think Tyus Jones, only taller. A standout center who led St. Louis Park High School to three state tournaments, Petersen was Minnesota’s Mr. Basketball in 1980 and the first Minnesotan selected to play in the McDonald’s All-American Game, then fairly new. Some of the biggest names in college coaching recruited him. Al McGuire of Marquette. Lefty Driesell of Maryland. Lute Olson of Iowa. Minnesota wanted him, too. Badly.
