We’ve spent an inordinate amount of time trying to discern a sports hierarchy among Twin Cities teams (college or pro) when it comes to fan interest. The top of the list, we think, is pretty easy: 1) Vikings. 2) Twins. From there, frankly, the list falls apart. It can go in any direction. Sometimes we think Timberwolves. Sometimes Wild. Sometimes Gophers football. Once upon a time, even Gophers men’s hoops. For a stretch in 2004, Gophers women’s basketball. Yeah, we think about a lot of things of far too little significance far too often (like the proper etiquette at a trough-style urinal, for instance). But this one is probably at the top. Your thoughts?
