I hate west coast games. I force myself to go to bed and Tivo the end of the game, promising myself that I will watch it the next day. But then I rarely do. I am weak and look at the score and read eleventy billion things about the game in various blog posts, news articles, whathaveyou, and then I don't feel the need to watch the rest anymore. It's sad.
Pacific time zone rocks when you're actually out there. It blows for the rest of the country.
Tell me what I missed the last couple games. Amusing details, people. I want all the amusing details.
In news of players I love as much as Twins, Ian Kinsler shook off the beat down the Twins gave the Rangers last weekend, and took out his frustration on the White Sox. Which is always nice, I guess. It almost makes me feel less guilty about us knocking them out of 1st place in their division.
The entire Pittsburgh Pirates team has taken to wearing high socks lately. Team unity + high socks = win. Also, the fact that the Pirates:Cubs::Yankess:Twins amuses me greatly. And Neil Walker, adorable Pittsburgh native (AND entertaining mocker of d-bags) won the Pirates game last night with his first big league home run. Fun. The sequence of shaving cream to the face pictures are a good way to start my day this morning.
