In Minnesota, we don't wait around for fair weather to kick our enthusiasm for sports into high gear. We play host to some of the nation's toughest winter athletic events - and a polar vortex won't stop us. We built one of the nation's first tuj lub courts, honoring an ancient Hmong game. And our women's sports teams - from basketball to roller derbies - are something fierce to behold. Sportstalk is a collection of stories celebrating our state's sportier side.
