Timberwolves Got Run Over by the Reindeers

In other news, the Timberwolves choked away another game in their disgraceful loss to the Bucks.  It was bad enough they blew a fat lead, missed key free throws down the stretch, and that trailing by one with seconds to go, Mike James inexplicably decided to lightly touch a Bucks player who was wide open on a fast break, forcing an And-1 and putting the Wolves down 4 instead of 3 – Awful.  But what makes things worse is that we lost to the Milwaukee Reindeer.

Seriously, who thought it was a good idea to switch the team colors to red and green?  That’s an iffy color combination to start with, but when you add in the fact that the Bucks’ logo is a deer, you’ve just created the new definition of lame. 

Yet, why stop there?  The Bucks would have been far better to just take things all the way and throw a red nose on their mascot. Actually, I think I’ll do that right now… Not too bad for a 30 second photoshop job. 

Anyway, am I just bitter about my team losing, and losing pathetically?  Absolutely. So congratulations Milwaukee, you won fair and square.  But seriously, go back to purple.
