It’s true. In the middle of June, a point guard from Europe whose statistics aren’t that good got more attention than a local baseball team that may be in the middle of one of the greatest comebacks in the history of baseball.
Of course, the Twins, owner of the best record in baseball for June, are off today. And Ricky Rubio has been marketed as the savior of the moribund Timberwolves for several years now, so a little excitement can be forgiven.
Besides, he seems rather cute and, dare I say, adorable. When’s the last time the Timberwolves and “adorable” were in the same sentence?
If you were Rubio’s tour guide, what would you show him? The Sears parking lot snowpile has already melted, so that’s out.
