Game 6 - Carly Rae is Okay.

With one week of 2013 in the books, the Twins have won their first two series of the year and boast a 4-2 record.
The mechanism powering these victories seems to rely on the team getting a few lucky bounces per game. If the team doesn't find some stable slugging and more dependable fielding, this burst of good fortune may give way to a mudslide of loss and despair.
The real star of Sunday's 4-3 victory of the Twins was Carly Rae Jepsen. The "Call Me Maybe" threw out the first pitch for the game and, if the social media I follow was any indication, America has not soured on the singer after her song burned itself into the country's gray matter. Twins Daily mainstay Parker Hageman seemed exceptionally bewitched by the singer.
Even former Twin Dan Gladden got into the action. Cory Provus took a break from calling the game to give his radio partner's dance to "Call Me Maybe" a glowing review. Gladden gave the credit to his daughters, but I expect the music was in him all along.
So fickle fame hasn't left Carly Rae behind, and maybe the equally fickle baseball gods have not yet abandoned the Minnesota Twins. Who knows what Week Two will bring?
