I was pretty proud of myself, actually. I was working some major good-luck mojo on Friday and Saturday. We are talking lucky clothes, lucky food, lucky chants and cheers. I especially like my Kevin Slowey cheer:
Slowey, Slowey, He's my choice!
He talks more than all the boys!
In an effort to do my part to break that Boston funk. So I tried everything.
But Sunday...I didn't have as much. I did try to come up with a good luck cheer for Glen Perkins:
Glen Glen Perkins, his pitches are all workin'
He'll throw the ball and smoke 'em all
And keep us Twins fans smirkin'
But it was really last minute, and I think the baseball gods could probably tell I was phoning it in.
And then we lost. Coincidence? Hopefully.
I'm sorry Glen Perkins. I will try harder next time. I promise.
And now the Rays are in town. I'm bummed I can't make any of the games. So everyone needs to cheer twice as loud for Jason Bartlett for me. Deal?
And speaking of Jason Bartlett....
Awhile ago a commenter requested a top ten list of major league players, as ranked solely by Adorableness Quotient. I decided to go one step better and have picked All-Stars of Adorableness rosters for the NL and AL. The results are detailed in the latest Baseball Happy Hour. I inadvertently left the Orioles out of the line-up. An oversight, not intentional. So, Adorable Orioles suggestions are welcome. I hope they're the only team I left out. I tried really hard to include everyone. Even Oakland.
