We Love Minnesota Sports: Win, Lose, or Missed Field Goal

Minnesota fans have had it rough. From the Lakers leaving in 1960 to the original "Hail Mary" to perhaps the worst trade in professional sports to the departure of our beloved North Stars, we've cried, shrugged our shoulders, and cried some more. From generation to generation, the heartbreaks continue to pile up. But we don't quit. We don't give up. Minnesota's fans of baseball, basketball, football, and hockey keep coming back, season after season, year after year.

Twin Cities filmmaker Dan Whenesota called upon the diehard fanatics in the Land of 10,000 Lakes to help him compile a list of the worst, most devastating moments in our sports history. This "Calendar of Calamity" became the basis for History of Heartbreak. It's more than a collection of unforgettable moments. It's a tribute to our spirit, to our unwavering loyalty. It is a celebration of our favorite teams--the Vikings, Twins, Wild, Timberwolves, Gophers, and more--and a reminder that those who have experienced the worst learn to truly cherish the best. Join Minnesota fans across the state and around the country in remembering the moments that broke our hearts and brought us back for more.

Inside You'll Find

  • Accounts of 100 heartbreaking moments in Minnesota sports history
  • Beautiful full-color sports photography
  • Foreword by Dan Barreiro of KFAN Radio
