My favorite team since I was about five years old is the Minnesota Timberwolves.  We haven’t made the playoffs in 12 years and it’s looking like lucky number 13 is a foregone conclusion at this point.  We have a new coach and a ton of talent on the team, but we have not improved to date.  We will eventually, but this year has been an exercise in restraint and optimism for the future.

The Vikings started the season 5-0 and are now 6-6.  It has been a terrible two months of losses, some close and some not so close.

Minnesota seems to have terrible luck with professional sports (and college but I do not follow that closely.)

Sadly, this is one of my favorite past times and I cannot help but root for my teams.  It’s going to be a long and difficult season.
