Will North’s bandwagon find new places to park?

(Continued)

NORMAN —

Times have changed so much, I know. And still, I went to a bunch of McGuinness games a long time ago, but not every one.

Still, I think about what I wrote the other night, that one of the great things about this bunch of T-Wolves is how they make anything seem possible.

Well, you think it’s possible that the mass of humanity that’s been following it around lately might not disintegrate just because the magic carpet ride, win or lose, is about to end?

Yeah, I know, everybody will buy their T-shirts and paint their bodies for next season’s Owen Field Clash. But what about the week after that, the week after that and the week after that?

What about everybody else’s season? What about baseball and softball and basketball and soccer?

If you haven’t noticed, sports are fun. So is feeling like you’re a part of something. Once in a while, a team captures the imagination and everybody jumps on board. Even more rare, sometimes they stay on board and look for other places to park the bandwagon.

On the field, the T-Wolves are building a legacy. Maybe their followers can build one off it, too.
