Enjoy The Losing, Timberwolves Fans

Dear Timberwolves fans,

Again, the Timberwolves lose by double-digits:

Time….

AND time again:

MAN!

Fire Thibs, right….?

Heh….(I like this one better)

Hilarious!

If there’s one thing I learned about covering Timberwolves fans, ya’ll pretty reactionary. Like a roller coaster that’s ready to dip from the peak.

Sigh, let me tell you something: sometimes, the reactions are extreme:

And unacceptable:

The basketball IQ from Tim was great, but let’s be real now: do we need to express ourselves using profanity?

No.

Why am I even telling you this, but eh I’ll just say it anyways…let’s balance our thoughts and emotions, Timberwolves fans.

We’re only, what, how many games into the season?

Hardly enough to predict the Timberwolves record at the end of the season.

I hear you though. I hear you when you feel frustrated—dumbfounded!—when the Timberwolves lose by double digits to sub-par teams.

All of that makes sense, and there could be something else behind the frustration that’s fueling it, but what good does that do to our fandom when we express ourselves in ways that are extreme to our favorite team?

Nothing.

Nothing good comes out of our extremism, which is why I want you to ask yourself this: what is the purpose of you watching Timberwolves games?

For me, I want to enjoy the ride this year because the Timberwolves are over .500.

Hey, I know…I hear you. It’s always frustrating when the Timberwolves lose unnecessarily, but at the end of the day, regardless of the outcome, the Timberwolves will make the playoffs this season.

So enjoy the losing, Timberwolves fans, especially the ones mentioned above.

The Timberwolves are going to be okay!
