MN Lynx Clinch WNBA Title, Twins Lose But Still Make History

What do the internet and Minnesota’s WNBA team have in common? Their favorite animal is the lynx.

Cue the snickers and eye rolls. Corny, I know. 

But I can’t help it. After watching last night’s WNBA championship game between the Minnesota Lynx and the Los Angeles Sparks, I have no shame admitting I’m a cat lady.

For the fourth time in seven years, the Lynx clinched another WNBA title after taking down the Sparks 85-76. I won’t bore you with all the statistics, but I will mention how evenly matched these two teams are. With a rivalry this tight, you know you’re in for an exciting game.

And Game 5 did not disappoint.

The Williams Arena in Minneapolis was at capacity with 14,000-plus fans who were forced to wait until the final seconds for a decisive victory.

In other sports news, the Minnesota Twins and the New York Yankees faced off Tuesday evening in the American League Wild Card game. The Yankees came away with the W, but the Twins made history by becoming the first team in the MLB to make the playoffs after losing at least 100 regular season games the year before (Twins were 59-103 in 2016).

Well done to both Minnesota teams.
