Since sports and competition is such a natural facet of people’s lives, every country and city in the world needs some people or some team to get behind and root for.
In this article, let’s look at Minnesota to be specific. While Minnesota’s teams aren’t the strongest these days, it doesn’t mean that they aren’t great athletes that have some notable wins in their belts. These especially happen when they play at home.
Let’s take a look at several sports teams that Minnesotans can root for.
The first team we’ll be looking at is the Minnesota Vikings. Currently, they are second place in the NFC North with six wins and five losses. The current team is being led by head coach Mike Zimmer and new quarterback Kirk Cousins.
Cousins led the Washington Redskins to a respectable year last year. Thus, it is hopeful that he can lead the Vikings to a great season this year.
Within their division, only the Chicago Bears stand in their way at the top spot. However, the Greenbay Packers and the Detroit Lions are nipping at their tails and could take the Viking’s spot.
The Vikings need to work harder than ever to be the top team in their conference.
The Timberwolves are off to a rocky start this year. Their current standing stands at 13 wins and 13 losses. However, the Timberwolves are still fighting for a place in the playoffs.
Head coach Tom Thibodeau is a great person to get behind and believe in to bring the Timberwolves to a great season. Fans should hope that Robert Covington should return. This will increase their chances of winning by quite a lot.
Next, we have the Minnesota Twins. It has been more than 20 years since they last won a World Series. They last won one in 1991, with the previous one four years ago. Before then, it was on 1924.
Recently this year, second baseman Jonathan Schoop just agreed to play for the twins for one year. He was previously selected for the all star game in 2017. This is only one of the few recent trades that the Twins have done in order to increase their winning chances.
They also got infielder EhireAdrianza, first baseman C.J. Cron, and also a final coach staff was filled with Bill Evers.
These are only a few of the Minnesota teams can root for and support. There is always hope for teams to do well as long as their community continues to support them.
