"Special to the Star Tribune"? It's a shame the Strib won't send a reporter to cover Minnesota's most successful team. How many covered the 0-3 Vikings today? News on the cheap.

Looking forward to the WCF, whichever opponent we get.

They Lynx are two games away from their third straight trip to the WNBA finals and receive five paragraphs under the fold for their efforts, while the hapless Vikings grab the headlines and receive five pages of type for their third straight loss, the last to what could arguably be the worst team in the NFL.

Thursday night 8pm.. get your butts to the Target Center to come and support the Lynx who are 2 WINS away from being the WNBA Finals for the 3rd straight season! If you haven't been to a game come join us!! Plenty of room on the band wagon.. These Ladies play as ONE.. as a team.. Nobody really tries to take over and tries to be the star.. Its the Minnesota Lynx and they play as ONE for 40 Minutes

Best 2 of 3? What kind of playoffs is that? You work all year to get there, and it's over in 2 games? Hardly enough time to stage a series, let alone gain a rivalry. Hardly time to generate fan interest, if it's over just like that. Why are womens sports discriminated against compared to the men? It's the same in tennis. Women play 2 of 3 sets and men play best 3 of 5. Why? Do they think women can't handle it? Owners, Let them play! You're only shortchanging your league, the fans, and your pocketbook. That said, WAY TO GO, LYNX!!!

I agree with garyanelson56 not only the vikings but the hapless twins also get more coverage

manolive, I agree with you. Sadly it is all about the money, like many things in life. The poor WNBA players make AT MOST about $100K per season. They have to play overseas in the off-season (where they can make much more) to make any serious money. And they don't get any serious TV revenue here, look at how few games were even on any cable station. It's just pathetic how little respect they get from the big money interests that run things.

What's on the front page of the Sports section.. but the Vikings.. the Lynx have a little write up under the fold again... Kind of sad.. but it's the way it goes.. But It's time to PACK the Target Center on Thursday night.. if you don't have tickets yet.. head over to the Lynx website or call their Box Office!! This the Lynx are the BEST Hottest team in town!!

Special to the Strib? That is really sad and lame on your part Strib. That said, way to perservere against a determined opponent and congrats on the first round sweep Lynx! Looking forward to Phoenix or L.A. - go Lynx!!

Let's not let the lack of attention from the paper and TV detract from the type of game the Lynx put together on Sunday. What a battle!!!! It doesn't get better then that. But what was truly great, what went beyond the last minute bucket from Simone was the sign of true champions. At the end, they honored long time WNBA star Tina Thompson on her last game played placing her in the middle of their victory picture. If a picture is worth a 1,000 words, this one was worth a million. WAY TO GO LYNX!!!!
