T'Wolves Hold Contest For Free Suite At Target Center For Rest Of Season
Published November 11, 2013
HEY LADIES: BLEACHER REPORT's Grant Hughes noted the T'Wolves are running a "Ladies' Night Out" promotional package that includes "a game ticket, an adult beverage and a DVD" of the first season of "Girls" for $18. The T'Wolves used "this same package to attract female clientele to the Target Center last season" (BLEACHERREPORT.com, 11/7). ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY's Jennifer Arellanoon wrote, "Should we be insulted or encouraged that the Minnesota Timberwolves think they’re appealing to (or pigeonholing) women’s TV tastes with a specific female foursome show conveniently called 'Girls'?" There is "something about the promotion that reeks of a failure to understand female sports fans" (EW.com, 11/8).
