Since I am from Minnesota, I am a big Vikings and Timberwolves fan. The Vikings and their 4-1 record have been a nice surprise so far. Offensively Percy Harvin has been carrying the load, and has been a joy to watch. Adrian Peterson continues to amaze me as he continues to show that his knee is healthy. Hopefully they continue their success, and make a run at the playoffs.
The Timberwolves haven't been so great lately, but last year it looked as if they would sneak into the playoffs as an eight-seed. Unfortunately Ricky Rubio tore his ACL, and everything went downhill from there. David Kahn and his staff went out and signed a handful of players during the off-season, though, and the team looks completely different. Among those he signed are former Wolves draft pick Brandon Roy, Alexey Shved and Andrei Kirilenko. This year is an important year, because if they don't start winning soon then Kevin Love could be asking for a trade.
Of course I'm also a big Minnesota Golden Gophers fan, and the loss against Iowa hurt a lot, hopefully we can come back strong and beat Norhwestern.
