On The Minnesota Lynx Winning Streak We're Not Supposed To Talk About

The Minnesota Lynx are off to an uber-impressive 7-0 start to the 2012 WNBA regular season. It's early, of course, but being undefeated at any point of the year while playing a professional sport in Minnesota is a pretty rare feat these days.

This is something that should be shouted from the rooftops, methinks, but Lynx head coach Cheryl Reeve has other ideas -- ideas that made us agree with Tom Powers of the Pioneer Press, even.

"I would appreciate it," she said, "if you guys didn't write about any streaks."

Yeah, right.

"I know you're going to," she added. "I know."

You are correct, ma'am.

"To the best of my ability I'm going to cut them off from Internet service," she said of her players. "And we're not going to read the headlines, because that's when bad things happen."

The Lynx have dominated six of their seven opponents this season and, whether Reeve likes it or not, that's something worth talking about up here. They're the defending champions, they feature a homegrown star in Lindsay Whalen and ... they're undefeated.

Whether or not they're able to actually be better than they were last year remains to be seen, but it's become very clear that this team is very, very good. Even if they lose a game -- and it doesn't look likely at any point in the near future -- the Lynx have given us something positive to talk about.

And that's a good thing.
