So naturally, I've been going overboard with Twins Fest planning. I'm meticulous. I'm highlighting top priorities with blue on my schedule, because blue is pretty. Pretty, blue highlighted things I'm most excited about:
- Ben Revere. It's the perfect opportunity to make snap judgements about the fabled new kid.
- Photo sessions with Carlos Gomez, Brian Buscher, Nick Blackburn....and well...mostly everybody else too. I kind of feel like the photo schedule was designed to maximize my personal happiness. So, to whoever scheduled that....THANK YOU.
- The Joe Soucheray and Patrick Reusse interview with Carlos Gomez. I have very high entertainment expectations for this particular interview.
- Corey Koskie. I miss Corey Koskie.
- Grab bags. So I have a chance to get some of those promotional items only given to kids during the season. Michael Cuddyer Growth Chart.....here I come.
If you want to hear some of my rambling Twins Fest tips, plus some other stuff, you can check out the first pilot episode of the podcast (which took a lot longer to get off the ground than I had anticipated because I really underestimated the pain-in-the-butt-ness of the initial set-up, but we're all good now). You can go listen to it on the web HERE, or you can just use the RSS feed url:
to subscribe to the podcast feed directly. I use iTunes for all the podcasts I subscribe to...go to "Advanced" and click on "subscribe to podcast" and paste the url in. Easy peasy.
I'll be posting some Twins Fest predictions here later this week (ie, the number of times strangers ask me "Who's That?" in reference to baseball players they are in line to get autographs from, and the number of 2008 Twins Yearbooks I bring home from Fest this year). Good Times.
Happy Inauguration Day!
