Why am I a Minnesota Sports Fan?

Being from Minnesota, I have a deeply rooted love for all of my teams up north (i.e. Vikings, Twins, Timberwolves, Wild, etc.). As many of you know Minnesota hasn't historically had the best of sports teams (no super bowls, no stanley cups, no NBA titles) but we can usually fall back on our beloved Twins to pick us up during the summer (2 World Series titles and in my lifetime more division titles than I could count). However, the past two years have been a failure in Twins standards (especially with building a sweet new stadium!).

This season has not been any better with the Twins posting an embarrassing 37-52 record and are already 12 games out of first place. While losing has not been easy this year there are moments of the old Twins coming back to life. The most recent example of this was the Twins victory over the Orioles. While the Orioles have not had very good seasons in the past, they are above .500 this year and in contention for their division title. The victory was nice but it was the score that really shocked me: 19-7.

How can you score 19 runs in a game against a decent team and be 12 games out of first place at the All-Star break? So frustrating. Welcome to the life of a Minnesota sports fan.

On the business side of things, the business hasn't gone bankrupt or burned down yet with Dave and I running things in the office so that's good! Outside of that not much new to report. 

Until tomorrow, we out here spinning!
