I'm in a weird mood today, so here are just some random thoughts.
If I were not a Twins fan, life would be so dull and meaningless. I would have much longer fingernails. But I would have longer fingernails in a world that was dull and meaningless, and what fun is that?
Do you think baseball non-fans have any idea about how much fun they are missing out on?
Corollary: Do you think they also have any idea about how much we mock them behind their backs?
Real baseball fans are so much more hardcore than football fans. I mean, I love football too...but more as an accessory. Football fans only really have to be on their toes once a week during a much shorter season. Baseball fans have to have their game faces on almost every single day for 6-9 months depending on how much you like Spring Training and whether your team makes the playoffs.
Last night, I was obviously nervous during the top of the 9th, when it came down to Justin in the bottom half, I was cool as a cucumber. "I'm not worried, Justin's got this." A big thank you to Justin Morneau for rewarding my faithfulness with some winning. I thank you, Team Awesome thanks you. Keep up the good work.
My friend and co-worker Erin is baby-stepping onto the Twins bandwagon. She has even tentatively chosen Carlos Gomez to be her first Baseball Boyfriend. Welcome, Erin :)
