On the latest episode of the Minnesota Sports Fan Podcast, we start with Joe Mauer’s retirement press conference where he thanked everyone in the state of Minnesota by name. Brandon can’t handle all of the Thank you’s and almost quits the podcast on the spot.
Meanwhile, everyone in Minnesota is celebrating Jimmy Butler’s departure and thankful for the haul the Timberwolves received in return from Philly. However, little does everyone seem to know that this trade has cemented the Wolves foreseeable future in mediocrity, which will bring down any hope that we once had with Towns, Wiggins and LaVine.
We find plenty of time to discuss everything else going on in Minnesota sports, including the Vikings mid-season playoff stretch they are about to face, along with the Wild’s hot streak and a little Gopher Basketball with them playing a HUGE game against Utah on Monday night.
Take it in. This seems to be one of the only places you can find truth and honesty in Minnesota sports.
