A modest proposal for Minnesotans

It's been a long 20 years in Minnesota. The state hasn't put a major sports franchise in a Championship series or game since the Twins won the World Series in 1991. The Twins have been very bad this year, the Vikings have crashed and burned since Brett Favre's brief renaissance 2 seasons ago in Minnesota, the Wild have some hope, but aren't really a regular in the post season at all (and the North Stars moved away) while the Timberwolves have been a catastrophe since Kevin Garnett left.The less said about the Gophers the better.
But wait! There is a team in Minnesota that actually looks competitive this year! WNBA's Lynx are allegedly on the verge of the post season and a conference title! For your psyche, Minnesota, throw your weight behind a winner! They even have players I have heard of! 4 of them! That's almost an entire starting lineup (assuming women's basketball is played the same way); Lindsey Whalen (local hero!) Maya Moore (brash rookie!) Seimone Augustus (resident badass!) and Candice Wiggins (also there!).
So there you have it, that's my proposal. Start cheering for the Lynx, because it will be nice to have a team win something for once.
