Are any games televised? Have not seen one available round these parts since maybe Luc Longley? When the NFL vanishes from broadcast TV I'll forget about that too. Twins? Distant memory. North Stars were fun. There are better things to do than watch sports anyway. Mr. Reusse does seem to enjoy living in the past and I'll keep reading about the good old days with Pat.

The Twins are a distant memory, the North Stars were fun. You'll forget about the Vikings and the NFL when they move away from broadcast TV. There are better things to do. But you continue to read Reusse's column? Seriously? You can't make this stuff up.

"Are any games televised?" - Yes. "Have not seen one available round these parts since maybe Luc Longley?" - This is a statement not a question.

It's too bad that I hate the NBA, otherwise I might actually watch this team.

I decided to go to a game a few weeks back - the energy in Target Center is back - Rubio made a great ally-oop play and the crowd went wild, Love was a beast under the boards, and the Wolves kept playing hard and made some great plays down the stretch to win. This team is FUN to watch. Even if you hate the NBA like blasphemer does (I'm surprised she even read the article), this team is what pro sports should be about - entertainment.

The Wolves are only a game out of being a playoff team but they have a very tough patch of games coming up. Away back-to-back against the Clippers and Lakers, then travel to Phoenix. You know the Clippers are gunning for the Wolves after our buzzer beater victory there last time.

The Timberwolves are by far my favorite team in Minnesota!

I loved the way the Wolves came back against the Jazz; fantastic game.

Fun to watch, great personalities on the team, outstanding coach with a stellar staff (including a former Timberwolf!), great arena atmosphere -- come to Target Center and enjoy! BTW, college students can get into the game for $5 most nights. This team has already equalled the number of wins in last year's entire (82-game) season. They are very fun to watch. And there's more fun yet to be had! Gotta love 'em! Go Wolves!

How true, and who would of thought that the T-Wolves would present a team, let alone quite a group of likeable ball players.
