At least Seattle's paying $4.25 for their gas....

Before I even begin to write anything, I think we need to just take a moment to relax....and look at bunnies:


OK. I feel a little bit better now.

Baby bunnies in gingham tea cups are almost adorable enough to make me not think about the fact that we just lost a series to Seattle. Almost, but not quite.

They are probably cute enough to make me stop throwing things though. It's a start.

Here's something else that makes me feel little better: Gas is still like $4.25/gal at Seattle gas stations. Suck it, Seattle.

Oh, and this picture makes me feel a little better too. Can you find the funny? Look close.

You know, I had been hoping we could take advantage of the Seattle games this 2nd half, so that an almost inevitable craptastic 4 game series in Anaheim wouldn't hurt so much. But.....no. That's not really how this is turning out. Suddenly playing 7 more games against the M's doesn't make me quite as giddy as it once did.

I do have to give some kudos to Jason Kubel tonight. He did pretty awesome. And at the end of the game, when I was desperately chanting "Don't be 'Third Out Kubel,' don't be 'Third Out Kubel,' don't be 'Third Out Kubel'....." he came through and was NOT, in fact, the third out of the 9th. So....good job, I guess. Thanks.

I'm sorry for bringing up the end of the game. You were trying not to think about it, weren't you?

Here:


That's better, right?

I already said my peace in the e-mails. *cough*conspiracy!*cough* Ah hell, I blame George Bush for this too. Why not?! :-) Hey, those bunnies are making me feel better. GO LONG EARS GO!

Thanks for the bunny pics. I am a daily visitor to the lolcats website (more humor than cute, but cute does creep in occasionally), but definitely needed a dose of the bunny today when I read that the Twins did indeed tank last night. (It was "up 2" when I first listened on the local ESPN Radio station, then "Seattle up 4-2" and I knew we were sunk, but I still hoped....)

Thank you for cheering us up with those pictures. Everytime I think of the last 2 games, I just wanna crawl into a hole and cry. Our bullpen right now is blech!

Hmm...bunnies don't work for me. They have sharp teeth and move fast. I think a nice, calming picture of Mad Dog 40/40 would work.

Phew no sweep. Perhaps Livan Hernandez found Liriano's voodoo doll?

Maybe Liriano traded Livan his voodoo doll for the ugly jerseys.

Today (Aug. 8) is the first time I have looked at your blog...and it is brilliant. Thank you for my first laughs of the week. And I'm not being facetious. Your baseball knowledge is as solid as your humor. I'm hooked. A new regular reader.

Roger, thanks for the note! We're glad to have you aboard!
