Minnesota Lynx home opener ends in a disappointment but fans are looking forward to 2010 Lynx Season with Lindsey Whalen

Minnesota Lynx play home games at Target Center
Sunday night the Minnesota Lynx played their first home game of the 2010 Lynx season. Fan support for the Lynx and their new hometown star Lindsey Whalen was at an all time high as almost 10,000 fans showed up to watch the Lynx kick off their season.

The Minnesota Lynx hung tight and at times fans were confident that they would pull out a win, but at the end of the night the WNBA Minnesota Lynx walked away with a 87-76 loss. However, fan spirit in the Target Center was reflective of a win. Local fans have been waiting for Lindsey Whalen to come back to Minnesota since she graduated from the University of Minnesota where she was a star on the Golden Gophers Basketball Team.

A Minnesota Lynx representative told reporters he felt that fan support wouldn’t wane even if the Lynx weren’t winning right after the bat and he's probably right. Minnesotans are looking for a reason to be exctied about basketball at the Target Center and Whalen and the WNBA Lynx may be the answer.
