Target Field: Top Three Non-Baseball Things To Eliminate
Time for the annual encouragement to the Twins to make the game day experience less annoying - Top three non-baseball things to eliminate at Target Field:
3. Stop letting the players pick their own intro music - Some of it is boring (Joe Mauer's and Doumit's intros last year), some of it is baffling (Trevor Plouffe with 70s Zeppelin song "When the Levee Breaks" - I just don't get the connection to batting) and very few good and appropriate ones (like Oswaldo Arcia's lively Hispanic intro). Get a musicologist or the person who chooses the WWE intro songs to find the appropriate songs, not the uninspired idiots with the Twins who pick the country sing-a-long songs. Certainly don't let the players pick their own songs (unless a veto is exercised regularly). Since we missed this opportunity when Jon Rauch was the closer, when 6 foot 9 inch Alex Meyer starts a game, his warm-up song should be: The Dictators - "I Stand Tall"
2. Get rid of the word "Guy", such as putting "P.A. Guy" on the back of an announcer's jersey.
1. Retire permanently - the Mayo Dance Off.
