That's how I roll.

I think I'm more excited about the Rays/Sawx ALCS than I am about any potential World Series match-up. That's probably because:
a.) I don't give a flying rat's patoot about either NL team.
b.) the Rays/Sawx match-up gives us the highest likelihood of fisticuffs. I love those.

I'd rather see the Dodgers make the Series, only because it'll be fun to watch Joe Torre stick it to the non-playoff-making Yankees organization. Plus, I used to work with a guy who played for the Phillies and I didn't like him that much. For some reason, I hold the entire current Phillies organization responsible. It's totally irrational, I'm aware. That's how I roll, folks.

I have a feeling that a lot of the Twins off-season blogging is going to consist of me talking about funny things that happen, and then desperately trying to connect them to baseball in some convoluted manner. So I thought I'd get a headstart and practice with a little anecdote for the Rays.

I was at Bath & Body Works this weekend, and a little girl picked up an adorable stuffed sheep and showed her mom, saying "OK, Mom. How about buying this for me? The answer is either yes, or yes." Smart kid.

So...Rays, how about kicking the crap out of the Red Sox? The answer is either yes, or yes.

Is it odd that the Rays had to play the Sox two series in a row?

i think it's a good sign, though. now they're practiced at beating footwear so it will be even easier this time around. (although maybe i shouldn't have just said that. i don't want to jinx them.)

and i'm a fan of fisticuffs, too. :)

oh yes, and while i'm hoping that mother didn't give in to that logic, i really hope the rays do ;)

We need your help. My friend and I spent all of last night's game trying to figure out what Manny has done to his hair.

Did he cut it? Were his dreds just kind of tied up under there? It was definately shorter somehow... and it seemed more fluffy.

Thoughts anyone?

Tammy -
If you look under Yahoo sports, there are many pictures of Manny that may provide some answers regarding his hair. Around picture number 80 on his page are some good shots of his hair. :)

That is, if you can call any shot of Manny's hair "good".

Tammy, if you saw tonight's game, you saw Manny has Mega-dreads now... apparently those babies were tied up somehow.
And about time the Dodgers caught up with everyone else and won a game tonight.
