Ratke On The Road | D-League Announcement

12:10 p.m. – Des Moines, Iowa – Hy-Vee Hall

We are here! Press conference in about 50 minutes.

Until then, here are some tweets from a three-hour and 30-minute drive that was full of me dropping the beat in the car. Seriously. Let’s just say Natasha Bendingfield made an appearance.

My snack of choice today was Chex Mix. I’ll be getting a Dairy Queen Blizzard later. Maybe a Hershey’s bar with almonds later, too. They have these new “bites” that I hear are very good. Stay tuned.

Now, we wait until the press conference to start in about 45 minutes that will be livestreamed on Timberwolves.com and the team’s Facebook page. 

7:02 a.m. – Minneapolis

I want to complain about how early it is. But it’s a Tuesday, we just had three days off and this is what time normal people wake up. So here we are.

Today, I’m embarking on the 210-minute voyage to Des Moines, Iowa for a D-League (soon-to-be G-League) announcement.

The announcement is set for 1 p.m., which is the same time in Minnesota as it is in Iowa, Central. So that shouldn’t be very confusing. We’ll be livestreaming it on Timberwolves.com, so make sure to check that. It’s like an extended lunchbreak!

I’ll be jumping in the shower shortly because we are hitting the road at 8 a.m. from the downtown Starbucks. If you’d like to buy me a coffee, I’d totally be okay with that.

In the meantime, I’m going to have a handful of these mustard pretzels for breakfast before we stop at a gas station in two hours and I buy all the snacks because when you’re in a car, calories don’t count!

I probably won’t be able to check back in until I’m in Iowa, so until then, good friends.
