Scientists are still puzzled by the contents of the modern basketball and believe it to be filled either with helium or several baseballs. Contemplate this conundrum with today's Groupon: for $40, you get one entry into the Run with the Wolves race on Saturday, April 9 (a $25 value), as well as one purple-lower-level ticket (a $70 value) to a fan-appreciation game versus the Houston Rockets on Wednesday, April 13, at 7 p.m. at Target Center (a $95 total value).
Celebrate the end of dunking season by stretching out couch-weary legs in the Run with the Wolves 5K fun run, benefitting the Minnesota Timberwolves' FastBreak Foundation. On April 9, participants can pick up their race-registration packets, which include a commemorative T-shirt and a gift bag, great for wrapping over the head to prevent mid-race perspiration loss. The race begins at 9:30 a.m. and is followed up by a postrace party.
Then on April 13, cheer the Wolves on as Kevin Love and company battle the Houston Rockets. Fans can hunker down as the T-wolves dribble, dunk, alley-oop, coup fourré, shimmy-shammy, and irish chowder their way across the hardwood. Catch the Timberwolves in action with fellow sports fanatics, your family, your secret family, or a group of people who only own blue, black, and silver clothing.
