Minnesota Golden Gophers Sports News, Notes, Videos, and Links: Golden Nuggz for 8/6/14

Wednesday is a hard day at work. Come on in, relax, and read about something you enjoy while forgetting about the last eight hours. Doesn't that sound good?

We begin today's look around the internet on a serious note by remembering Officer Scott Patrick of the Mendota Heights Police Department.  Thousands have turned to support his family and honor his sacrifice on the day of his funeral.  We at The Daily Gopher appreciate his sacrifice and extend our condolences to his family.  Please keep them in your thoughts.
