A little over24 hours until the opening tip of the regular season and I am about as excitedas a 10 year old the day before their birthday. There is something specialabout the start of the season. I still remember watching the Wolves first everopening day in 1989. I probably had a better seat on my couch in Lake ParkMinnesota than I would have at the Metrodome. Michael Jordan pumped in 45points as the Bulls beat our squad 96-84.
Oh yeah…and the Lakers are 0-2. Bonus!
24 hours til' tip:
While we have been forced to watch other NBA teams open their season, wefinally have our shot tomorrow against Sacto.
Tip off breakfast:
Starting at 6 tomorrow morning, the Wolves will host their annual "Tip-OffBreakfast" in the Target Center skyway area to start opening day. Timberwolvesdancers and Crunch will also be on hand to serve donuts and coffee.
"Countdown to Tipoff":
We've got the full court press on opening day. We'll have pictures, videoand content through the day as I spend opening day with the Gameday folks atTarget Center. From the radio and TV crew to the Operation people who make surethe fans inside Target Center have a great experience. It's an inside peek atgameday and it is going to be sweet.
