Musical preview

I lived in DC for more than a decade. While it was pleasant enough, I can't say I've missed it for a second since moving on. Part of the reason was the creative scene there paled compared to...

MIN-ATL Musical Preview: Part Deux

This is the fine work of E-6 and would make a great front page photo whenever a music post gets bumped up. Edith Piaf. Maurice Chevalier. Claude DeBussy. Jauques Offenbach. Johan Petro. M...

MIN-HOU Musical Preview: Life is still worthwhile

"Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?" The immortal words of Bluto Blutarsky ring true tonight. I look around at my fellow Timberwolves fans and see sorrow and despair, frustration...

MIN-LAC Musical Preview: Free Falling?

Yes, the Wolves are going through a touch patch currently. Yes, they are facing perhaps the best team in the NBA next. Yes, we are finally going to share some SoCal musical favorites to cheer...

Timberwolves - Justified?

The wheels are wobbling so wildly on the Timberwolves bandwagon these days that many passengers have jumped off. Those remaining gripe about the lack of shock absorbers as we jolt over bumps and...

MIN-SAS Musical Preview: Tex-Mex Edition

The last few times we've played a team whose state we've already previewed, we've headed over the border to the north. This time, lets head south. I'm not especially knowledgeable about Mexican...

MIN-OKC Musical Preview: Carry on, my wayward sons

Tonight's Wolf win over the Hawks swept the blues away, though they can always be found again in Dogpile's excellent preview for the game. Now the team heads to a tough game in Oklahoma tomorrow...

MIN-DEN Music Preview: Gold Nuggets

After a flat Wolves' loss to Utah tonight and then a game less than 24 hours from now against Denver, whom we've already played twice since these previews began, I don't know how much musical...

From 1 to 35,535: Don't call me Billy Bob

It's gotta stink when you have a relatively uncommon name (first and last) and then someone with that same name becomes a notorious serial killer... or a US President... or a movie star/drummer who...

MIN-PHX: Musical Preview aka You're No Good

Arizona (let alone Phoenix) is another of those states where I nearly draw a blank when I try to remember what musical flowers have blossomed thence. To be honest (and it's as much a reflection of...

From 1 to 35,535: Stan the Man

My walk though every Timberwolf in reverse order of minutes played went on hiatus shortly before the season started. I'm happy to be back with what I hope you will agree is the best profile yet. ...

MIN-OKC Musical Preview: You're Doing Fine, Oklahama

I like a lot of songs about or from Oklahoma. Here are a few: Woody Guthrie's "So Long, It's Been Good to Know You," a vivid take on the Dust Bowl striking a small community. "Okie from...

MIN-MIA Musical Preview: Flo Rida?

Northern FL: boy bands and southern rock. Miami? Hip hop and latin music. Any favorites? I can't claim to be particularly attached to any acts from south Florida, but there have been a few...

MIN-ORL Musical Preview: It's a small world after all

For such a populous state, Florida doesn't seem to have generated a vast array of fantastic musicians. Let's stick with the northern half of the state for now, since the Wolves will be playing...

MIN-DAL: The Cuban Music Crisis aka High Fidel-ity

Our first musical preview was just over a month ago, when we last played Dallas. See the thread here. Texas music is the gift that keeps giving and we will be playing Houston and San Antonio...

FanPost

MIN-DEN Musical Preview: What was your first concert?

The gang did a pretty good job of sharing Colorado music here when we last played the Nuggets. Feel free to expand upon that here if you are so inclined, but I have a different tack for this...

FanPost

MIN-CLE Musical Preview: Cleveland Rocks

What crossed my mind when I asked myself what music do I associate with Cleveland? Not a lot. One of America's great symphonies and the Rock HOF. But the more I thought, the more good artists I...

FanPost

MIN-LAC Musical Preview: Buffalo Braves Edition

Man, these back-to-back west coast games make these previews feel rushed. LA's music is way too big to just jump into for a few hours, so let's leave that for a Lakers game with a day or two off...

FanPost

MIN-SAC Musical Preview

As we continue our musical tour of the NBA, I look forward to such sonically rich cities as New Orleans, Memphis, Motown, etc. Sacramento does not fall into this category. Granted, it is one of...

MIN-GSW Musical Preview: Round 2 (with poll)

We had a great thread here with plenty of fantastic music links from a number of contributors. But a week later, we are already playing the Warriors again. Now what? My challenge to you this...

MIN-DEN Musical Preview (with poll)

I have to say that since I started these musical previews a few games ago, each opponent's city has quickly brought to mind distinctive songs, musicians, and genres. But thinking of Denver and...

MIN-GSW Musical Preview

"Golden State Warriors" is one of the most boring names in sports. It's too vague, both in location - which state is golden, oh yeah, California; where do they play, oh yeah, Oakland - and in team...

FanPost

MIN-CHA Musical Preview

The Carolinas have been an important wellspring for music, from early country, gospel and bluegrass to college/alternative bands. Can the Bobcats hope to beat the Timberwolves song v. song? My...

MIN v. DAL Musical Preview

One can tell a lot about a place by the music that was created there or from the songs about the locale. Motown, Appalachia, Liverpool, and so on. Texas has a long and rich musical history, from...

From 1 to 35,535: I Ran Bad Ranch OR A Canis Photo Challenge

My Canis Comrades, your mission - should you choose to accept it - is to name all the people in this photo and tell me when and where it was taken. No looking up uniform numbers - you are on the...

From 1 to 35,535: Tavern Guards OR Rude Vagrants

Okay, the Timberwolf whose anagrams appear in the header to this post is not an easy one to decode. It doesn't help that his brief stay on the MN roster was nearly 20 years ago. Also, he never...

From 1 to 35,535: Die Unbid OR The Easiest Timberwolf Anagram Ever

In case the anagrammed Timberwolf in the heading doesn't make clear who I'm going to be talking about, here is a playlist to really hammer the point home: All the Young Ndudis - Mott the Hoopster ...

From 1 to 35,535: Headlong Into Wry OR Reloading? Why Not! (REVISED)

How many Timberwolves have been named Anthony? Let's see, last year's pair is easy to recall: Tolliver and Randolph. And another Anthony who is still playing in the NBA lasted two seasons with...

From 1 to 35,535: A Sustained Gain OR Detained Us Again

The bullet grazed his neck, Sundiata Gaines says, just grazed it, using that word again and again. And then, after prodding, he points to the two-inch scar in the front of his neck and the...

From 1 to 35,535: Wily Quinces OR a TimberGoph

If a timber wolf could mate with a gopher, what would the result look like? We'll have to leave that up to E-6's imagination, as such sexual congress has never occurred, due to a rather large...
