This isn't what I signed up for...


Definitely not. So far this has been depressing. Things are not going like I expected them to, and the bad attitudes and negativity can't lead to anything good as the season continues. And I am not talking about the Wolves's season.

C'mon Canis Hoopus, how about a little heart? How about giving ourselves what this site is really about. A good, fun analysis of the Wolves while providing a community and insight that the larger media outlets are not able to provide.

 

I am not going to spend a thousand words telling you why this season might be redeemable. Maybe this is what the rest of the year will look like, maybe it isn't. However, think of what we have been saying about Kevin Love and Mike Beasley and our other young and talented players.

"These guys are good, I just hope they can play hard and consistent every day, and that the losing adittude does not catch onto them."

Well, guys... I think it is apparent that the losing attitude has caught onto a lot of us. We are bad. A very bad basketball team. But why recycle the cynicism that is easily found at every single other basketball site. Let's stay optimistic, make jokes about how bad we are, but stay fans. Right now we are just faters (like frenemy -  a friend/enemy - we are fans/haters).

This site used to have incredible analysis of our Wolves and a fun, optimistic view even as we suffered tons of loses. That is what I signed up for. This year, immediately after last season ended it has been dark and cloudy and too ESPNy around here. We still have good analysis, but it is hard to enjoy with all the cutting commentary on the side. It starts from the top. I am not trying to call out anyone, but if some of the top posters aren't even Wolves fans anymore, how is this site supposed to be special?

Anyways, I couldn't fault anyone if nothing changes. Things are pretty bad around here (here being both the website and the basketball team), but it would sure be nice it if did change.
