Sorry Buehrle, we called this one.

The only way to prove how prophetic Those Girls actually ARE would be to make all of our phone conversations public, so you'll just have to take my word for it. This morning we were talking about this series, along with plans for the KC series. When discussing the Mark Buehrle start tonight, our verbatim pronouncement was "he's due for a crappy start," defying conventional wisdom and various ESPN personalities' predictions.

Sure, he straightened things out there at the end, but he was just crappy enough for me to be convinced that our proclamation made it so.

Good job bullpen! I have a feeling that there might be more than a handful of Twins fans suffering a wee bit of brain damage from holding their breath for 4 whole innings, but it's worth it. I think a congratulatory "Boof pitch good!" is in order. And Carlos Gomez catching that A.J. ball? Holy crap....that was awesomeness at its most awesome.

We still have one more Sox game to get through, so I was very careful to ignore the powerful urge to happy-dance tonight. No jinxing. I am allowing myself to look forward to a couple of ESPN folks eating some crow tomorrow, though.

I got my sign made and ready to go for tomorrow night! I'll put pictures up of it on my blog in the morning...2 hours and it is pep rally worthy (and yes I used one of your ideas...just for you!)
You will love it!! :) I'm really hoping to get upgrades (scalper ticks?) and sit near chicago's dugout....if aj could see the sign it'd be super!

Thanks for the love-meld you put on Swisher. I think it is carrying over to the rest of the team. LLL= Let's Love a Loser!

When I saw Swisher coming up I told my friends "Don't worry, Those Girls are fangirling over Swisher right now. We'll be okay."

I also felt a warm moment of protection when Swish was called up to bat.

I thought to myself, "Those Girls have got this one." So I was able to concentrate on my Joe Nathan Hottest Twin/Motorboat chanting.

Thank you, for all you do.

How about the crooked 2nd base umpire blowing that play that got the Twats a run???
