Mayor of Minneapolis tweets poetry about the Minnesota Lynx beating the Atlanta Dream

Hannah Foslien

Minneapolis Mayor R.T. Rybak derives great joy from watching the Minnesota Lynx. So he wrote a poem about it.

There are a few great WNBA cities out there, but Minneapolis might take the title with a mayor who writes poetry about the city's team (and even talks a little trash about their opponents). Wanna see it? Here it go.

OK, so he's neither poet laureate Joyce Sutphen nor hip hop duo Atmosphere but isn't it the thought that counts?
