Here is a piece from Friday in the Star Tribune which analyzed a poll which asked people which Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St. Paul) pro sports team they were most excited about. The Vikings NFL team had the most interest (38% or 945 votes out of nearly 2,500), followed by the Wild NHL team (33% or 813 votes). The Lynx were third (23% or 562 votes), followed by the Twins MLB and Timberwolves NBA teams, which didn't get 100 votes each. The poll was unofficial, but it does show that the Lynx have gained relevance in the Twin Cities' sports scene.
