Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Monday, April 19, 2010

Minnesota Monthly covers the return of Lindsay Whalen to the state with some great quotes for Lynx head coach Cheryl Reeve.

And head coach Cheryl Reeve has placed the future of the franchise squarely on Whalen’s shoulders. “If you think of the most exciting times in the history of the franchise, this would have to rank in the top two,” she says. “The first was when the Lynx announced that they would be in Minnesota. The second is the acquisition of Lindsay Whalen.”

“It’s one thing to be excited that Lindsay’s coming home, and it’s another to be a fan of the Minnesota Lynx,” says Reeve. “The thing we’re looking for is for people to become fans, buy season tickets, be at the games, and create the kind of energy that people saw with the Gophers. That will be the real Lindsay effect.”
