Minneapolis Postseason Hopes Rest On The Twins

Found this interesing tidbit while perusing the Star Tribune website today.

↵

Since 1985, there has not been a sports season in which at least one of the Twin Cities’ major sports teams—the Vikings, Twins, North Stars/Wild, or Gopher football, basketball, or hockey qualified for the postseason playoffs. For the differing Gopher entities, the post season means either the NCAA tournament or NIT for Gopher basketball, the NCAA tournament for Gopher hockey, or a bowl game for Gopher football.

With the Minneapolis sports landscape in kind of a funk right now, it’s up to the Twins to keep that streak alive. The Wild fumbled and bumbled themselves out of playoff contention, the Timberwolves were eliminated when they traded Kevin Garnett a few years back, the Vikings are a hot mess, and why is Don Lucia still the Gophers hockey coach?

Save us, Jerry Kill-kenobi, you’re our only hope.
