Wolves Updates 9/22

Because it's so crappy out and this topic never gets old, click here to watch a few priceless seconds of Mad Dog dancing.

From The Pioneer Press:
A little birdie says a California friend of Taylor's who has been interested in buying as much as 30 percent of the Timberwolves has gone into a wait-and-see mode while talks continue. That's not to say a deal couldn't be struck next year.

Timberwolves owner Glen Taylor's priority these days is to return his team to contending status. But if the Wild were to become available for sale — and that could happen within a year or two — and double-billionaire Taylor were to buy the NHL team, it wouldn't be surprising if he made the Wolves a co-tenant at Xcel Energy Center.
As for the Wolves' lease at Target Center, a move probably would require a buyout by Taylor.

My initial thought was that there are few things more depressing than having to go to downtown St Paul 40+ times a year to watch the Wolves play. Then I realized I could be watching the team in the depths of that city sans Garnett. If that ever happened, I might trade in my season tickets to watch Joe Mauer at the new downtown Minneapolis stadium instead.
