MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — I’ve been a Twins fan my entire life. There is no team that I’ve followed more closely. In fact there is no other thing in life, that I have no control over, that drastically affects my daily mood. Don’t believe me? Ask my girlfriend how the evening after the Twins lost to the Yankees in Game 2 of the ALDS went.

This season I’m afraid I’m losing my extreme, some say unhealthy, dedication to my one and only team. Don’t worry, I still have plans to make 40+ Twins games this season, wear a Twins item each game day and to get a killer T.C. tattoo.

I’m frightened because I’m VERY excited for today’s Detroit Tigers vs. New York Yankees game. To think that I’m excited to watch two of the Twins sworn enemies either means this was the longest winter ever or my Fantasy Team is loaded with Yanks and Tigers. 

I’ve been known for drafting many Twins players. I’ve also been known for making it to the playoffs and losing in the first round. I’m not saying … but I’m just saying.

Keep your favorite players close and your enemies even closer, right?         

That being said … I drafted a White Sock, a few Yankees and a little Tiger. 

NOW it’s go time. The season is here. Tomorrow will be even better!

I’m not losing my soul … just making it stronger.
