Weekend Cup of Canis: Fall Back

Happy Sunday, y’all.

After a semi-hot start to kick off the 2021-22 NBA season, the Minnesota Timberwolves have quickly turned back into their traditional pumpkin-like state, dropping their last four consecutive home games as they prepare to head off on a four-game road trip on Monday.

As many of you know by now, I’m an eternal optimist when it comes to many topics in life (including my beloved Timberwolves), but this last week or so of on-court “performances” has done next to nothing to instill confidence or hope in the direction of this current squad. While I remain bullish on the long-term future of the franchise (primarily because of Anthony Edwards), things are not bright and beautiful right now at Mayo Clinic Square, and the only way get the train back on the tracks is simple: win basketball games (don’t just talk about winning basketball games, but actually go out and accomplish the mission).

But enough about the Timberwolves for a second — the real reason I wanted to drop in on this fine fall Sunday is to remind everyone that it is daylight savings again, which means (if you haven’t already) it’s time to set those clocks back (I triple-checked this on Google because after 33 years on Earth I still don’t quite understand this process). Spring forward, fall back!

In addition to daylight savings, I also wanted to mention that today is National Cancer Awareness Day in India, a day that highlights the significance of increased awareness about cancer prevention and early detection for the general public. A few years back I shared that both my mom and my mother-in-law have battled multiple bouts of cancer, which is why my day job is working in financial administration under the umbrella of the National Cancer Institute. Simply put, cancer has taken a significant toll on both mine and my wife’s family (as well as millions of other families), so if you’re reading this and are looking for good resources on the importance of early detection, cancer screening guidelines, and/or how to get screened, check out this link, or this link, or this link.

That’s about all I have for today — I hope everyone in the Canis community has a great and relaxing Sunday. Enjoy that extra hour of sleep!
