    Personally, I think Provus is better than Gordon ever was.

    Well, historically, almost anything can happen in Minnesota as far as snow and winter are concerned up through mid-April. In the old days, they used to schedule the Twins on the road for the first couple of series, calculating, correctly, that it is better to be playing in Minneapolis on April 10th than March 30th. But, global warming has changed all that, along with the three decades in the Dome, which allowed schedule makers to do whatever they wanted with the Twins schedule.

    And so, one of these years in Target Field, we will get burned, in a big way. Like a whole week is lost. Sure the field can get cleaned off, but there are snowstorms, cold weather, rain and general misery when it comes to early Spring in the Midwest. Is it this year? Might as well be. The Twins got nothing to lose playing the Tigers and especially up against Verlander. Let's play those games sometime in July or August, in double-headers, with minor leaguers pitching for the Bengals, shall we?

    This has been one crummy February, and this slowness of this thaw is killing me. You're right - it's hard to imagine that baseball is mere weeks away.

    Now that you mention it, the Twins aren't mentioned more than once or twice in Ken Burns Baseball, are they?

    Obviously this has to happen.
    Would it be on Animal Planet, Syfy, TLC?
    Please advise.

    I don't know who is inside that suit, but he has the patience of a saint. (pretty sure it is a male)
    I've seen him hounded by kids and he's always so good to them.
    I'm a nice guy, but I don't know if I could do that.

    James, we do not refer to the musical stylings of Glen Danzig as "tame." Remember, he was in The Misfits, and he wants your skulls. He NEEDS your skulls.

    Awesome. I spend the whole entry talking about Chris Parmelee AND misspelling his name. They don't tolerate that well in the cut-throat, manly land of Parmelee, I'll bet.

    Man, the Surf brings back a memory or two. Haven't actually been there for a concert since I was in HS (no... that was NOT pre-Buddy Holly!).

    Those were some very kind words for me, thanks! Given that I had been drinking pretty steadily for about an hour and a half before I met you, I wasn't really sure what kind of impression I made! Really glad you enjoyed yourself. It was great to meet you, and your brother in law, as well!

    Oh... and there's actually a Joensy's in CR just a couple of miles SW of the ballpark now... same great tenderloins (both battered and grilled versions for those of us conscious about that kinda thing).

    Good imagery on the reaper with stirrups & socks!
    I guess he has manly, human-like legs, but I had always imagined either no legs, or just bones.

    Love it. You're definitely right about that slow marlin at the top.
