When he’s not listening to police scanners, chatting with tipsters or directing news crews, he’s watching and talking about the Minnesota Twins.
Peter began contributing to the WCCO.COM’s Twinsblog during the 2007 season. He won an Upper Midwest Regional Emmy for his editing work on the blog’s videos in 2009.
Monday was Jim Thome Day. Now it’s turning into Jim Thome week and rightly so.
Twins fans need something to talk about. Mr. Thome is taking his sweet time making it to #600, ranting about the bullpen is getting old and Mauer is already a first baseman (sometimes).
I sat and struggled to maintain consciousness during yesterday’s late night Angel beat down. Since the Twins are playing the most heavenly of teams I thought I’d try to put a positive spin on some recent losses.
Since the day after the All-Star game is typically the most boring sports day of the year, I’m putting out a plea to help out a fellow Twins fan.
Today is Michael Cuddyer’s day. He definitely earned the manager’s selection into tonight’s All-Star Game. He’s one of the reasons why the 2011 Twins are still grasping on hopes to make a run at the Central Division Title in the second half.
After last night’s historic loss I found Twins mascot “T.C. the Bear” giving out free hugs outside our station on Tuesday.
Everything surrounding Joe Mauer’s absence has been so damn dramatic, my gf and I decided to go to last night’s game and produce and equally dramatic video.
If getting back Nishi, Mauer, Thome, Span, Kubel and Perkins all within a week or so wasn’t a good sign … then this has to be.
The last game I attended it snowed. That was two weeks ago
The WCCO-TV Newsroom is more superstitious than most baseball teams.
It’s time to take this day away from all the slackers and haters. It’s time to focus on what is really important: Lew Ford’s contribution to the Minnesota Twins.
It didn’t happen during any of the division clinchers. It wasn’t at any of the playoff games. It wasn’t game 163. My perfect Twins moment happened last night.
It always hurts a little bit more losing there. Today it hurt a lot.
Hey Minnesota Fans. The Twins won a game. It’s time to jump back on the Twins Wagon!
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.
