1998 Vikings (It still hurts). 2010 Vikings. '03-'04 T-Wolves. The Twins of the 2000's. '03 Wild. Gopher's sports that matter (sorry Gophers Hockey & Wrestling). Close, but...
It's been a long time since the fans of MN have had something to celebrate in terms of a championship (Sorry Lynx). The Vikings had 4 chances at a Super Bowl in the '70's, and a few more along the way. The Twins last hurrah was '91, and really haven't gotten that close since. The Timberwolves got close once, but since then have been an embarrassment- and the same goes for the Wild. Gophers sports, the major ones at least, have been average at best, although you could probably blame that on the mascot. A Gopher, really?
So what is it? Why as MN fans, are we subjected to some of the worst gaffes in sports history, and some of the worst decisions by our franchises? Herschel Walker, Gary Anderson, Michigan Comeback in '03 against our Gophers football, Latrell Spreewell, Love Boat Incident, Joe Smith, Isiah Rider, Troy Williamson, Twins of the 90's (after '92). There's so many more pathetic displays- too many to log- but is there a reason?
