Things could get very, very weird.

Cleaning out some stuff I came to a realization:

I have a lot more Torii Hunter bobble-heads than one person should own. WAY more. I don't even know where they all came from. I know a few years ago at TwinsFest they were giving them away like candy (I assume someone found a missing crate somewhere and had to do something with them...), but I'm pretty sure that I didn't take home THIS many.

I suspect they might be breeding somewhere in the darkness.

I am mostly worried that one of those randy prolific Torii bobbles is going to find the Doug Mientkiewicz bobble and things are going to get very, very weird.

So if anyone has any good suggestions as to what one might do with an excess of these, feel free. I am toying with the idea of inserting Torii into a variety of historical dioramas for my own amusement.

The one where we debate panda bears.

For the few of you who have particularly missed my personal brand of absurdity the past several weeks (it is unfortunate that political campaign season coincides with baseball season...but what can you do?), might I humbly suggest you head over to The Dugs and check out yesterday's Hit & Run feature?

Sarah vs Martin in an epic battle for honor and gender supremacy. I must say, I brought my A Game. Well, maybe my B+ Game, now that I think about it. Had I brought my A Game, Martin would probably still be bleeding from at least one nostril.

And poke around the rest of the site too, if you've never been. I'm pretty sure anyone who likes me will also appreciate their take on the more light-hearted side of baseball. Us funny awesome people all have to stick together.

Kinslerphiles unite!

This photo-heavy post is really for my fellow Kinslerphiles out there. You know who you are. [Time-permitting, I have a backlog of more Twins-related photos and snark for the rest of you too in coming days...but it was a long rough day, and Ian Kinsler makes me happy. Sue me.]

I was lucky enough to be able to document photographically the awesomeness that is Ian Kinsler's delightfully floppy hair, from just about every angle.

I swear that this is NOT Ian Kinsler giving us the finger. I'm 99% sure.

Kinsler was just chillin' watching the Twins legends take BP.

I don't know what Kinsler is doing to Eddie....but I kind of like it.

Ian Kinsler and eye-black go together like peanut butter and jelly.

Most adorable 2nd baseman in the major leagues? I vote yes.
