The Lynx have brought in more league championships than any other team in Minnesota

In 2010 the minnesota Lynx became a force to be reckoned with.


He's lucky that's a false statement as their missing the playoffs in 2010 was the reason they got Maya Moore.

I don't understand the headline. Is he saying that because they have had WNBA success they should be more popular than the male sports teams?

There are quite a few errors in the article. Anna Cruz does not play for Team USA, for one. For another, the University of Minnesota has had numerous national championships in hockey over the last 20+ years., with the Gopher Women's team being the most dominate team in the league since. like, ever. The NCAA has only has a women's championship since 2001, and the Gophers have won 6 of them and been the runner-up twice more (yes, out of 17 National Championship games, the Gophers have played in approximately half of them). This includes winning national championships 4 of the last five years, and coming in second in the remaining one. They also had an undefeated season, the only one in league history, as part of a 62 game winning streak (which is ridiculous in hockey were games can end in ties and a hot goaltender can single-handedly steal a game).

So, no, as good as the Lynx are they are not the most dominate team in the state.

But otherwise, I do agree with the sentiment!

Most likely he was talking about pro teams.
