Everyone knows this is the month of madness for sports fans. This is when we spend hours sitting in front of our computers, TV’s and guidebooks. This month determines how the next half-year plays out…in fantasyland.
The MLB made it official today. They are expanding the playoffs to 10 teams by adding another wild card team in each league. The two wild card teams will play each in a one game play off to get to the divisional series.
This last weekend marked the beginning of Twins Baseball Season for tons of eager fans like myself.
If fans ruled the sports world, today’s events would have happened a year or so ago.
It’s been nine years since we’ve had a night like tonight. It’s going to be near impossible to follow up the ridiculous excitement that was Game 6.
The 2011 Twins season felt like a rekindled summer relationship gone south. You want it all to end by midsummer but you hold on until the fall just so you can go to their cabin one more time.
Some idiots are rooting for #100. They’re either nuts or Royals fans.
The Minnesota Twins were the guardians of peace and justice in the Central Division before the dark times … before the 2011 season.
A year ago this wasn’t possible, but now you can get into Target Field for peanuts.
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.
