If I would have told you that a 40 year old would lead one of our professional sports teams to the championship, your only logical guess would have been Brett Favre. Meet Taj McWilliams-Franklin.
Taj, and the other members of the Lynx, are doing something that hasn’t been done in the Twin Cities area since 1991 — represent the area in a championship series for the title. 1991! Remember when Kirby Puckett put the team on his back and Jack Morris pitched the greatest game 7 of all time?
Minnesota Vikings: 1969
Minnesota Twins: 1991
Minnesota Timberwolves: Never.
Minnesota Wild: Never.
Minnesota North Stars: 1991
The Lynx open Minnesota’s first run at a ‘Ship since 1991. Let’s hope they get it going and start turning Loserville USA around. Someone has to start it, and maybe it makes sense that its the Lynx.
