Something feels very different than we're used to with Minnesota sports. If you've fallen off the Minnesota bandwagon, it might be time to hop on before there's no room left!

For the 1st time in a long time, our Twins have an impressive winning record and are in 2nd place in the American League Central. They're playing solid and winning games. Seats are being filled up at Target Field and excitement fills the air throughout each inning.

We saw a stronger Vikings team than we've seen in a few years. It's a new offensive line, and Sam Bradford quickly showed what he can do when he's given time to find receivers. The opening game of the season was so strong, I can't imagine that we're going to fall apart, but rather just get better each week.

The Wild start their season next month along with the Timberwolves, so it's hard to tell how they'll do in the first few games. Both teams have potential with the off-season adjustments to their rosters. If it's anything like we've seen with the Twins and Vikings, we're in for a heck of a nice ride this year in Minnesota!
