knees are way too fragile

Damn.  That's the thing about basketball teams.  Everything is working, everything is falling into place, and then you lose a key player to a serious injury and you start all over again.

The Minnesota Timberwolves are having such a fun season, every game has been one that we Wolves fans look forward to, and now one of the leaders of the fun is out for the season with a serious knee injury:  Ricky Rubio, the rookie from Spain, has a torn ACL ligament resulting from the wrong twist of a knee in last night's game against the Lakers.

Tom and I are going to tonight's game versus the New Orleans Hornets, and now I feel a sense of dread and sadness.  I'll still be wearing my Rubio shirt, but who knows what the team will be without him?  Can they adjust, or will somebody else blow out a knee?
