Today is one of the most special days on the calendar. . .ANY calendar. . .in this holiday season.â†µ
Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Dec. 23 marks the day that men and women, boys and girls, young and old of every race, color, and creed celebrate that most special of all the winter holidays. . .Festivus!â†µ
Every year, Festivus begins with what is known as the "Airing of Grievances". . .and boy, oh boy, there aren't many groups of people that have quite the number of grievances that they could potentially air than what Minnesota sports fans have had to endure over the past 12 months. The Timberwolves are a bad basketball team, Gopher football was awful, the Wild are fair-to-middling on the ice, and the Twins got thumped by the Yankees again. . .to say nothing of the odyssey that the Vikings' 2010 season turned into this year.â†µ
Since we can't celebrate the rest of the Festivus holiday through the miracle of the internet here. . .although you all are free to attempt the Feats of Strength at home in your own way and on your own time. . .we can get into the Festivus spirit right here at SB Nation Minnesota with the airing of grievances. Please use the comments section of this post to tell us what your grievances are with your favorite Minnesota sports team or teams, and let us all commiserate together in the spirit of Festivus.â†µ
We at SB Nation Minnesota will make a generous donation for the best grievance aired in that individual's name to The Human Fund. Remember, The Human Fund. . .Money for People.
