Could It Be Minnesota????

8 posts in this topic

Since the Phils won the World Series, their cities streak of being the longest running 4 major pro sport market since winning a championship has been snapped. So I was thinking at work last night, could Minnesota be the newest victim? No championships since 1991. I ran through all the teams in my head, and finally came up with one (I thought) that has been longer- Washington, DC. The Capitals have never won a Stanley Cup, the Nationals have never won a World Series, the Wizards (AKA Bullets) last won an NBA title back in 1978. Now onto the fun part- the Redskins won the Super Bowl following the 1991 season, the same year as the Twins last title. However, as you all know the Super Bowl is played into the next year, so they have gone since 1992, ironically their Super Bowl was won right here, in the Hump Dome. So, I guess we may be the longest running place without a title for our 4 teams. Anyone else know of any that have gone longer???

Not sure...but how 'bout the bay area in Northern California?

A's/Giants; Raiders/49ers; Golden State Warriors; San Jose Sharks.

Should all be considered the same market...

They have to have an NHL, MLB, NBA and NFL franchise in the same market.

there was a poll done on espn a few days ago, and Minnesota had the highest votes to win it next. They need to win it for Gardy IMO

I've heard a couple times that we've gone the longest without a championship.

    • Sure seems like a nice little bait. Takes the topwater frog to a whole new level.
    • They talked today about the D inability to find shooting lanes....I like Reilly's ability to walk the blueline with the puck and shoot quickly...maybe he could help...but he is not physical by any means... BB stated he wants a big physical Dman for starters.
    •   Good stuff...the main diff between Chicago and Mn was the way the Bowman took ownwership of the problem and Fletch did as expected today and blamed a hot goaltender, danced around pointed questions...he did however admit we are in a tough position with the Cap and few draft choices but steered clear of ownership to that problem....did you listen in by chance...it was almost laughable
    • BB, I cant say I disagree with any of those observations. They didn't produce when it counts. That is what really matters, but it isn't the first time that teams excel in the regular season and flop come playoff time and it certainly isn't something that is isolated to the Wild. The Hawks get some slack because they have won 3 cups in the last 7 years, but fact is they have been bounced in the last 2 1st rounds too. By that, they are no better than us. We will see what happens to the Caps. They have a tough draw with the Pens this round, but its not a stretch to say they will get bounced 2 years in a row and be the Presidents Cup winner. Lots of teams have that issue. Anaheim has had that tendency too. Playoffs are a whole different animal. The team makeup that works in the regular season usually doesn't translate well in the playoffs. I agree the Wild need more beef. Staal certainly helped, but they are far from a heavy team especially on the back end with our D. Early on I thought we had one of the deepest D corps in the league. Looking at them in this playoff series they looked weak. We needed a guy like Folin to step in and play some minutes and make a difference, but he was shell-shocked in his first playoff game. I don't think we have much help in that area in Iowa either. The heaviest guy we have Seeler, is a liability big time and I don't know if he will ever make it up to the big club.
    • You can pre-order on a Japanese web site ... i almost did but got spooked out with all the Japanese language and had no idea how to translate and know what shipping and price was LOL     i want one but will wait!!!  so many lures and not enough time
    • Wow .. Sprinkler!!  Wonder where and when we can get one!!
    • Thanks for the advice guys...keep it coming!   Much appreciated before I make a pretty expensive investment.   Ref
    •   I stated they are better than 3/4 yrs ago compared to themselves...my point is the Wild are far from a top tier top 8 team when it counts come playoff playoff time...period...no arguing what just happened.  BB was very vocal in the Presser..."we need to get Bigger/Stronger" and Fletch missed that boat time and time again. Career Years are great personal stats...am I happy for Granlund, Staal, Nino...yes...but personal stats only gets you more personal $$, but if those stats don't translate into team goals they are all for naught....and every NHL Player will tell you that. They did exceed my reg season projection but their true colors showed losing in the first round so over all I was spot on  IMO this team will be missing more than one of these "career year" guys by the start of the new season if BB has more say...and I am getting the feeling he will be getting more say on personel.
