Sitting atop Lake Superior, and well-known for its own lakes and the cultural landmarks of its “Twin Cities” Minneapolis and Saint Paul, let’s not forget the many sporting attractions Minnesota has to offer.
In fact, this Midwestern state ranks among the few states that can boast a professional team representing every major sport. Not only that, but sports fanatics in Minnesota are treated to a year-long reel of exciting games.
Minnesota Lynx (WNBA), St. Paul Saints and the Minnesota Twins (MLB) take the spotlight in the summer. The legendary Minnesota Vikings (NFL) take center stage for the Autumn and Winter months while the Minnesota Wild (NHL) and the Timberwolves (NBA) straddle both Winter and Summer with their playoffs.
While it’s fun to kick back with Tasty Pizza, beer and friends to watch these seasonal fixtures, it’s a whole other experience to savor the live action. St. Paul and Minneapolis are home to some of America’s elite sports venues:
With home turf games against New Orleans, Tampa Bay, Chicago, Cincinnati, Detroit, Baltimore, Los Angeles and Green Bay, there’s plenty of Vikings action to rile up the fans this Spring NFL season.
If you need kitchen fridge reminders of The Twins’ hectic Summer Schedule, you can print it off here. Just a note: As with all MLB Spring Training and Summer Schedules, dates and times are subject to change.
Not forgetting the hungry Timberwolves, their action-packed season can be viewed on the main NBA website.
So mark your calendars, order in some Tasty Pizza and a six pack or two, and you’re all set for Minnesota’s mouth-watering 2017 Sporting Calendar. Let’s Go Vikings!
