By now you’ve probably binged all you care to binge on Netflix. You’ve watched all the classic games you care to re-watch. And you found the 10-part Chicago Bulls documentary a fine respite on Sunday nights.
Can we interest you in one more? How about 20?
"The Last Dance" has some company.
Our latest Star Tribune Sports Virtual Happy Hour centered on stories. Not the kind you find on these pages, but what if the next version of ESPN’s Bulls documentary had Minnesota twist? What would we sit down to watch week after week?
Ten reporters and editors gathered via computer for a snake-style fantasy draft to pick out the best multi-part stories. Imagine all-access footage and unfiltered truths from some of Minnesota’s athletes and teams of yore. Would you watch?
