Minnesota Professional Sports
Melissa Walters, on her Facebook wall, wrote that we should "be used to disappointment" from Minnesota sports teams, such as the Vikings (which happens to be an American football team). But how can you "...be used to disappointment..."? At some point it just makes sense to concede that professional athletes on Minnesota teams are just very, very bad at their livelihoods. What doesn't make sense to me is why do they still get paid as much as they do? That's just insane to pay anyone millions of dollars if they fail so consistently. Even in terms of ticket sales and television rights, I would expect my employees to try to succeed at their jobs. Wouldn't you?
