A Timberwolves executive successfully pulled off the "Dreams" challenge over the weekend, and did so in the most Minnesotan way possible.
Jeff Munneke, the vice president of client development and community youth basketball for the NBA franchise, wake surfed his way to the challenge that went viral when Nathan Apodaca (aka Doggface) cruised down the street sipping Ocean Spray Cran-Rasberry juice and lip-sync'd the words to Fleetwood Mac's 1977 hit song.
What's most impressive, perhaps, is that Munneke nailed the challenge on his first attempt – and he did it while being pulled behind a boat and wasn't holding a rope.
"I grew up water skiing on Ten Mile Lake, then transitioned to wake boarding and then wake surfing," Munneke told Bring Me The News. "To learn to wake surf takes a few runs to get comfortable getting up, then a few times at least to get into the sweet spot to surf without the rope."
According to his bio, Munneke, who has worked with the Timberwolves since 1988, spends as much time as he can at his family's cabin on Ten Mile Lake near Walker.
By the way, the Dreams challenge has become such a big hit that it launched the Fleetwood Mac song to No. 1 on Apple Music's Top 100 chart. It's since dropped, but is still No. 11 in America.
