“I have seen the dark universe yawning
Where the black planets roll without aim,
Where they roll in their horror unheeded,
Without knowledge, lustre or name.”
– H.P. Lovecraft
I recapped the Wolves’ 112-101 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks, and employed one of the best strange fiction/ horror writers of all-time, H.P. Lovecraft, to get it started. Here’s a brief excerpt:
“The postseason is still a long shot, and for many people, that means the season is a failure, and that’s okay, though it’s important to keep some perspective. Occasionally, the schedule affords us opportunities to look into the dark universe, to see what may have been. Kevin McHale once dealt away a hot shooting guard prospect for a chunky power forward from UCLA, and six years later, every Minnesota hoops fan is better off for it.
Whatever happens the rest of this season, as hopeless as you may get about the prospect of Kevin Love bolting, and as annoying as this summer is going to be (especially when it comes to speculative nonsense), just remember: the Wolves are not the Bucks, rolling without aim, rolling in horror unheeded, without knowledge, lustre or name.”
