If you choose a new team/organization, which team, and why?
I probably keep following the Twins, at least in the interim until I can settle on a new organization and get up to speed on their prospects, and the way their front office does business. I'd probably always have a soft spot for the former MN Twins, but I'd likely find a new team to root for. Being that I now live in Seattle, there's a chance I just go full blown Mariner fan and latch on, but teams like Houston, Atlanta or Washington are also intriguing to me because of the young stars and/or the respect I have for their front offices. Hell, maybe I'll even become a Marlins fan because of the heinous statue beyond CF.

Like the North Stars... I'm done.
I didn't follow the Stars to Dallas and I wouldn't follow the Twins either.
I'd suppose my new team would be the team that fills into my viewing area. Brewers?
I'd probably stick with the Twins (or Vikings too) even if they moved. I did stick with the Stars in the move to Dallas so they're still my NHL team. Had the Wild started within a couple years of the move, I'd probably have jumped to them, largely because Jon Casey (my favorite player on the North Stars) got traded from the Stars the off season they moved and would've been a good excuse to switch.
If the Twins got contracted and I had to pick a new MLB team, I'd probably go with the Yankees, Royals, or Rockies.

Luckily, having lived in Dayton for a time as a child, I have a backup in the Reds.

I don't think I'd care about the Brewers. I know I wouldn't care about the Cubs. No way on the White Sox. I don't mind the Royals or the Rockies, and I definitely would be a Cardinals fan.
But yeah, not a big fan of the question.

I'm still a North Stars fan, but I can't bring myself to root for the Stars. I do root for the Wild, though.
I was too young for the Lakers, but I'm also not a pro basketball fan, so I couldn't care less about the T-Wolves, aside from the desire for my home state to represent in the NBA for a change.

Twins? Locked in
Vikings? Locked in
T-Wolves? Locked in
Wild? Locked in
If you only follow the big 4 sports, you don't have to worry about this for decades!
But I supposed the gopher basketball team could move to North Dakota...that would be interesting
