So why was Josh Duhamel hanging out at the Minnesota State Fair? Besides enjoying some greasy fair food, Josh was hanging out with the local WCCO CBS News Minnesota to play some games and talk about a new game show he's hosting.

Buddy Games is a brand-new television game show premiering on CBS Thursday, September 14th. Buddy Games is about "six teams of four friends that come together to relive their glory days and compete in an assortment of absurd physical and mental challenges in the outdoors while bunking together in the same lake house." Josh Duhamel even competed in a friendly competition with members of the WCCO CBS News Minnesota news team.

Apparently, Josh is a huge Minnesota Vikings fan and thinks it's their year. He also loves hanging out at his cabin on the lake. So it makes sense why he decided to spend time at the Minnesota State Fair!

There is still time to check out this year's Minnesota State Fair! It goes from now until Monday, September 4th. Activities and entertainment at the fair can be found here.

Ten Most Disappointing Minnesota Sports Seasons

The 2021 Minnesota Twins entered the season with high expectations, but unfortunately, they've made the list of most disappointing Minnesota teams of all time.

Disappointment is a common feeling for Minnesota sports fans as the years continue. Following the NBA Championship win for Milwaukee, SportsCenter was quick to point out that Minnesota has the current longest streak of seasons without a championship appearance in the four major sports (MLB/NBA/NFL/NHL). The Minnesota Lynx also chimed in on the stat after claiming four championships since 2011.

The ten teams that are on this list all follow a similar pattern. The year prior was either a great season with a playoff run or one that featured a strong core of players that appeared to have taken the next step. Offseason/preseason expectations were high with even Las Vegas oddsmakers believing in a deep run. Unfortunately, those preseason expectations fell short for the following teams. None of the teams listed below made the playoffs.
