The beautiful state of Minnesota has won its first professional sports championship in 20 years! Just tonight the Minnesota Lynx defeated the Atlanta Dream to win the WNBA title. Seimone Augustus was named the WNBA Finals MVP.
As most people know the last Minnesota professional sports team to win a title was the Twins who ironically defeated the Atlanta Braves to win the 1991 World Series. While we celebrate the success of the Lynx, we also hope the Minnesota Vikings grasp the Lombardi Trophy at some point in our lives. Just don’t plan on that happening this season.
