9:00 AM... On a Wednesday... In Minneapolis

Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

Good morning internet. It's time for your morning cup of coffee (or in my case, four cups of coffee). In order to improve your productivity today, I've assembled the best Gopher sports links in the whole world (as of this moment). And just to get your day started right, I've dropped in some of my favorite "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" gifs. You might discover a theme.

If Columbus, Ohio, needs a bowl game, Minneapolis, Minnesota, will certainly require a bowl game once the Vikings new stadium is completed.  Hey, what have they got that we don't got?  Nothing.  Except a national powerhouse football program (currently).

I personally think you can spend at least an hour going through that list alone.

There are too many Sunny gifs for one post.  I don't think I even made it out of season 2 with these.  Go ahead and post your favorites in the comments.  Hopefully you can find some good gifs of Charlie and the waitress.
