Shakespeare and Love

“For it so falls out That what we have we prize not to the worth Whiles we enjoy it, but being lack’d and lost, Why, then we rack the value, then we find The virtue that possession would not show us Whiles it was ours” – William Shakespeare, Much Ado About Nothing, Act IV, Scene […]

I've asked for one thing throughout this… just don't get David Lee

Kevin Garnett got traded. Not like, recently, but he got traded back in 2007 when the dream of the Minnesota Timberwolves putting something significant around one of the greatest all around players ever to lace up the kicks had been taken off of life support. Because of the soul-sucking numbness that trade caused 25-year old […]

Do You Know Who's In Command, Here?

In the wee hours of Sunday morning, Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports dropped one of his patented “bombs“, which is usually fun, because he (often unexpectedly) reports a big piece of league news. But in this instance, for Timberwolves fans, the Woj-bomb was more of a vague reference to a landmine somewhere along Flip Saunders’ path, […]

Timberwolves 130, Jazz 136: What It's Like to Not-Be on a Boat

Rosencrantz: We might as well be dead. Do you think death could possibly be a boat? Guildenstern: No, no, no … Death is … not. Death isn’t. You take my meaning. Death is the ultimate negative. Not-being. You can’t not-be on a boat. Rosencrantz: I’ve frequently not been on boats. Guildenstern: No, no, no — […]

Timberwolves 120, Warriors 130: Edit the Sad Parts

The season is nearly over, and heaven help me, I’ve given into the temptation to daydream. For the third straight season, realistic hopes for the playoffs have been dashed, leaving some (many?) bitter and disappointed about what might have been. We all know about the team’s struggles in the clutch (and superclutch), injury bugs biting […]

Bulls 102, Timberwolves 87: Be aggressive, be be aggressive!

The Minnesota Timberwolves lost a random game on a back-to-back against a team that is much better than them, even with big injuries to their core. This is not new, nor is it really shocking at all. A night after the Wolves inexplicably blew out the San Antonio Spurs the night before and William Bohl tried to […]

Timberwolves 102, Grizzlies 88: Havin' a Ronny

You know that friend every group seems to have with the infectious existence? It doesn’t matter what is going on with the group, if that person has an energy about them, it will emanate to everybody else and they’ll adapt to fit said energy. If that infectious friend smiles, everybody around them smiles. If that […]

Nets 114, Timberwolves 99: A Love ballad worth learning

After the Wolves lost at home to the a struggling New York Knicks team (which apparently was about to start finally fighting for their playoff lives), I have to admit I mentally checked out for the season. I’m not one to really overreact to a win or loss. I try to stay even-keeled for the […]

Timberwolves 143, Lakers 107: Wherever You Go, That's Where You Are

In the skyway back to the parking lot after the Minnesota Timberwolves’ comprehensive mangling of the Los Angeles Lakers 143-107, two Laker fans stood vigil with a view of the exit to the visiting team bus. This was well after most of the crowd had made their way to their cars and the skyway was […]

Timberwolves 92, Grizzlies 109: The Long Bright Dark

[Video courtesy of CJ Fogler] That right there is a man at the end of his rope. When that video of Kevin Love’s postgame comments after the Timberwolves’ 109-92 to the Memphis Grizzlies was posted last night, reactions were both swift and morose, with many jumping to the conclusion that this means Love is done […]
