Hopefully the warm weather and southern hospitality from the home opener can carry over to Minnesota, when the team plays next week. Expect below freezing temperatures along with snow flurries and mild wind in the Twin Cities for Kickoff.
With many players not used to the cold, let alone the frigid temperatures of Minnesota in early spring, it will be interesting to see how the team fairs. Expect the game to start slower than normal as the team adjusts and gets a feel for the cold air and the possibility of slick and frozen turf.
With the high press that the team has implemented, expect our guys to stay relatively warm throughout the game. However, be on the lookout for potentially pulled hamstrings and calf’s during the 2nd half, as the lay off for half- time could cause some stiff muscles.
With so many players from South America, it will be interesting to see how the players adapt to such harsh weather conditions given that the seasons are flipped in South America.
