I loved this game today. LOVED. I wish it would have been broadcast on TV, because it would have been fun seeing Doug Mientkiewicz and Luis Rivas do well again. I still love Doug Mientkiewicz more than it's socially acceptable to admit. If the Pirates had won, I probably would have thrown an honorary Boyfriend of the Day award to Dougie Baseball...just for old time's sake.
It was awesome.
Boof did great, and he gets to be the Boyfriend today. Partly because he performed so well today, bouncing back after his last not-so-awesome start...
...and partly because the Star Tribune video of Twins reading our haiku poems has proven that he is, in fact, the cutest boy in the UNIVERSE.
I have three haiku in there, all performed by Michael Cuddyer. But Boof's is my favorite because he's so giggly. And Mike Redmond complaining that his poem doesn't rhyme. And Joe Mauer sounding like an English teacher. And Justin Morneau needing a very adorable re-do. They're all awesome, actually. Such good sports, those boys.
We may not win the World Series, but we really do have the best baseball team in the whole world. We're pretty lucky that way.
