    edit: yes I'm patting myself on the back. if you don't like it.
    No worries. My comment was more directed at Wes than you, for reasons larger than that.

      First off, reading over your post didn't help matters and really put a downer on my afternoon. We don't need to be reminded of all that over and over again. Plus husky fans likely cheer for the same pro teams, so we got that in common.

      But off the subject... if the NBA ever starts up again the T-wolves need to sign Lindsey Whalen. Between her and Rubio they would be unstoppable. Right?

      edit: besides this does help in arguing with sconnies. They bring up football all the time so now we can bring up WNBA. Seems to level the playing field, right?

        1. Minnesota Vikings - 4 Super Bowl losses followed by 5 NFC Championship game losses. No Super Bowl wins in their history.
        2. Minnesota Twins - Did win 2 World Series 20+ years ago but those are becoming faded memories. Has made the playoffs 6 of the last 10 years but bowed out in the 1st round in all but one of those. Usually by the hated Yankees.
        3. Minnesota Wild - Limited playoff appearances in their 10 year history. All playoffs were first round exits with the exception of the Western Conference Finals run of 2003.
        4. Minnesota North Stars - 2 Stanley Cup Finals appearances in their 26 year history with no championships. Oh, one more thing, they abandoned us for Texas!
        5.Minnesota Timberwolves - Is there even much to discuss here.
        6. Gopher Football - See #5
        7. Gopher Basketball - Academic cheating scandal to wipe out the only Final Four appearance they've ever made. While there is optimism for Tubby, nothing has panned out yet.
        8. Minnesota Lynx - Really?? The sports championship awarding Gods gave us women's basketball. Come on!

        Gopher Hockey is the one sport where we expect to be in contention every year (save the previous 3 years). Those expectations are periodically rewarded with MacNaughton Cups, Broadmore Trophies and NCAA Championships (Again, save the previous 3 years). I think everyone is mislabeling our arrogance. Isn't it more accurate to say we have Gopher Hockey relief? Relief that when it comes to Minnesota sports fans, Gopher Hockey actually pays us off once in a while.

        Of course, since it would also be reasonable to assume that most (not all) SCSU fans are also fans of the Minnesota local teams, it's kind of amazing any of you watch sports anymore. At least Gopher Hockey gives us hope for the other losers. What gives a Husky fan hope?
        I would say Gopher football is closer to #2 than #5 as they do have 6 national championships. It's just been ages. But yeah, no one really cares about them.

                Yeah, the Gophers were a serious force before the forward pass was allowed.

                      Gopher hockey repeating the frustration of the last three years... Schadenfreude is their only hope.
                      "...and that only took six seconds!"

                          Will there be many cloud fans making it to the game at mariucci? How about the pre-game at the pub?

                            Nate Schmidt on playing another rival: "That's the reason I came to the University of Minnesota, you're going to get everyone's best shot."

                            Looks like he chose the right school
