    These are trying times to be a Timberwolves fan. The franchise is a mess. The painful, prolonged Jimmy Butler saga continues to sap the joy out of a typically exciting time of the season. In lieu of a proper season preview show, (which we feel unable to produce prior to the inevitable Butler trade) we instead are happy to present something more lighthearted: Wolvescast Jeopardy!

    For the third straight year we’re kicking off the season by playing a round of the Trebek classic. Guest co-host Robert hosts another fantastic game pitting brothers against each other. Will Neil continue his dominance of year’s past, or will Scott finally break through and notch a win in the annual competition? Listen now and find out!
