As If Being A Viking Fan Isn’t Bad Enough!
As If Being A Viking Fan Isn't Bad Enough! O-4 in the Super Bowl is pretty bad, but the Minnesota Twins are on a torrid playoff streak that could rival the Vikings. The Twins have not one a single post season game since 2004...NOT ONE! Yesterday's loss to the Astros continued that streak. My question, does that put the Minnesota teams fan base in the discussion as the most despaired?
Think about it, if you only count the 4 core sports, it's not good. The Vikes are o for 4 in the big game. The Twins can't win a playoff game, let alone a series since 2004. The Wild...well they're the Wild and the their predecessor, the Stars, had to move to Dallas for a title. Then there are the T'Wolves...Hahahahahaha! See what I'm getting at? As fans, are we Buffalo?
