    I agree that is sad and am going to actively celebrate the Lynx.

    Is the lightweight boxing champion less an athlete than the heavyweight champion?

    A) That's why I put "city" in quotes

    Saddest sports city

    Some posters have suggested that Minnesota is the worst sports "city" in North America. I did some googling and this was my first hit -- https://mikedropsports.com/ranking-12-saddest-sports-cities-in-north-america/ As you can see, there are many sad stories, but Minnesota is ranked as the saddest city. Then I came across a site that rated Detroit #1 and Minnesota # 5 -- https://www.trainwrecksports.com/the-top-10-worst-sports-cities-in-america-1-5/ I think that the difference boils down to how much weight is given to making the playoffs versus winning championships. It's been a long time since a Minnesota team won the championship in a major sport -- the 1991 Twins? And during that time the Vikings, Timberwolves and Wild have been disappointing. All of that said, if there is such a thing as karma -- and I believe that there is -- the negative attitude of fans may be having some effect. I wish that there was some way to change that. Any ideas would be appreciated.
  6. The chart showing the increases in Ober's velocity is encouraging. Ober may never be Randy Johnson, but his height gives him a lot of leverage on the ball.
  7. I would like to see him come up, but think that he first needs at least one decent appearance in AAA.
  8. I have been involved in this thread since around 2013. It can be a lot of fun when the game is good. And when the Twins are losing badly, the negative comments seem more appropriate.
