In part 2 of 4 of this podcast, Frank and J.J. discuss the Minnesota Wild playoff run, the state of the MN Twins, and what the Vikings will do on draft day.
How does a team make their fans feel miserable? Losing a lot is one way. But so is the tease, building up their hopes before letting them down. Teams from these 10 cities have toyed with their fans the most over the years. Misery points are awarded for postseason records – the later you lose the more points you get – supplemented by other factors like fewest championships per season and the length of a city’s current championship drought. Candidates are limited to those cities with at least 75 cumulative MLB, NFL, NBA, and NHL seasons.
No. 9: Minneapolis
Teams: Vikings, Twins, Timberwolves, Lakers, Wild, North Stars
Championship Round Record: 7-8
Semifinal Round Record: 12-18
Last title: 1991

The Nationals announced that they acquired center fielder Denard Span from the Twins for minor league right-hander Alex Meyer. Alex Meyer is a 6-foot-9 right-hander selected 23rd overall by Washington in the 2011 draft. Twins fans should be excited. This guy is known to be a power pitcher with a lot of upside. Twins owners better check the height of their dugout though.
What do you think?
Pearl Jam lead singer Eddie Vedder is an avid Cubs fan. For years, however, he called the Red Sox his favorite American League team. Not anymore. When former general Theo Epstein bolted for the Cubs over the offseason, Vedder dropped his Boston fandom and switched allegiances, calling the Twins his favorite AL team.
Is being a Twins fan Gods way of punishing Vedder for Vitalogy?
