Lynx Olympians Home, Rubio Excited for Season

Friends, it’s a Tuesday in August. Not much going on. Let’s chat anyway.

The Olympics are over, the Lynx don’t start up again until Friday, it’s a Tuesday in August.

Ugh. There is nothing going on.

The Lynx did make it back to Minneapolis, however:

So that’s good news. Lindsey Whalen is looking pretty crabby, isn’t she?

Meanwhile, bronze medalist Ricky Rubio spoke to the AP about the Wolves, winning, and helping Kris Dunn. He sounds ready to get to get to work.

"I think we've got all the pieces together to make something happen," he said. "I'm really excited about the new coach and the new staff. They have a lot of years in their backpack and really can teach us how to reach the next level. I think we have the tools. We just have to put all them together."

That pretty much exhausts my news for today.

Look forward to some changes coming to Canis in the coming weeks in the form of new contributors and more content. We’re going to try to do more and varied stuff this season, so bear with us while we work out the kinks.
