Good Luck

Well, all I can say, as we settle in for yet another series against the Yankees, is good luck Twins.

I want to believe. I want to believe that things are different THIS time. We've won more road games than we've lost...so that's good. But there's a part of me that realizes whenever our team gets to the East Coast, there's a little bit of regression to Little League form. Sad but true.

But maybe this time.... Right?

....It'll be different.

*sigh.*

10 random tunes for Friday...

Pink Cadillac--Band from TV
Fresh Air--Brother Ali
Bad--Michael Jackson
Left and Leaving--The Weakerthans
Just Like Heaven--The Cure
Hallelujah--Rufus Wainwright
Feed the Tree-Belly
Bust Your Windows--Glee Cast
Giving Up on Love--Slow Club
We Used To Be Friends (Season 3 Remix)--Dandy Warhols (Yes, I have the season 3 soundtrack of Veronica Mars, and I'm damn proud of it.)

I showed you mine...now show me yours. 1st ten songs on random play from your computer/mp3 player.

I think this is finally the year that we stop falling apart against the Yankees. Perhaps Gardy just needs to give a super inspiring speech, like Mel Gibson in Braveheart or Bill Pullman in Independence Day. Or... he could Photoshop a bunch of funny pictures of the Yankees - with captions! That would help, right? Well, it would be funny at least...

2. What I've Got (Reprise) by Sublime

One of the headlines in the Strib sports section today was, "It's Time for the Twins to End Their Bronx Cheerless Streak"

This is especially hilarious to me because, as I understand it from buying several whoopie cushions, a "bronx cheer" is a fart. ??

So Jim Souhan is telling our boys to go fart it up in Yankee Stadium?

Why not? I guess.... huh?
