Reality Check Time Minnesota!

Everyone's talking about Boston\New England... No, not for the Fall colors and the chowder. But for the sports. Oh the Trifecta of perfection that is taking place in Bean Town. The Sox with their World Series sweep, the Pats with their perfect record and the Celtics with their big wins. One must think that this is just a moment of pure coincidence. Wake up America, do you not see what is happening here?

Do these names ring a bell: David Ortiz, Randy Moss, Kevin Garnett? Were they not once some of, if not Thee best players on our MN teams? And now? David Ortiz has not only 1 but 2 World Series wins under his belt. Randy Moss will most likely win the Super Bowl, and KG, can we say Playoffs! And I don't mean in the way Jim Mora said it!

Let me tell you something else, its not just Boston. Watch and see what happens with Torii Hunter and the Angels, and Johan Santana and the Mets! I wouldn't be surprised if they both actually *go* to the World Series, let alone WIN! But don't start crying me a river when you say, It's a money thing! Boston has more money which equals better players which equals more victories. The Mets, the Yankees the whomevers... they have the money, true, but there is something going on behind closed doors... Plans and deals are being hatched everyday and who is left with the proverbial goose egg? MINNESOTA SPORTS TEAMS! Jokes on us suckers!

To make this more clear, I will put it to you in laymen's terms: Let's say you have a kid that wants to be pro-tacular, agents listen up to. Send the kid to MN first. Let them sweat it out here, break their hearts year after year with almost going to the World Series, almost going to the Super Bowl and almost going to the Playoffs. Oh it will sting, the defeat will be painful, but right when they think that all hope for victory is lost... some team from Boston or New York or anywhere but here, will scoop them up and bring them to their glorious full potential! Do I feel bad that Ortiz, Moss and KG are gone, yeah maybe a bit, am I more happy to actually see them go somewhere with their careers, Heck yeah! And cry cry boo hoo for Hunter and Santana all you want. But come on, they put in their dues, lets cheer them on to greatness!

Don't get me wrong I live for and love our beloved Twins, and I will always have a soft spot for the Vikings and T-wolves... but the sooner we can accept the truth, the sooner we will realize this: Minnesota is a place created by the MLB, NFL and NBA to raise superstars. We are the incubator of the sports world. At least we can be proud that we raised our lil' sluggers right! Dang Proud!
