    Ok, I'm impressed , but can you juggle?

    Now let's see if the Rockies' pitching can keep it there. (One out to go, but no guarantees.)

    Wow, Dozier puts you in the awkward position of sort of rooting for the Twins NOT to score. Kudos for getting a call right with a number that seemed not only borderline absurd, but also with the whole unlucky stigma thing attached.

    I trust that if the Twins give up two in the 9th, you'll be on the next plane to Vegas, or maybe gassing up the Buick Roadmaster for a long road trip.

    Tomorrow is Monday. Plan accordingly.

    Also, preliminary research shows that your Twins run tally bingo and overall score call turning out that way is almost as improbable as the NBA draft lottery actually turning out to be random after all.

    Juggle no, but if you see me run, I can jiggle in all the wrong places.

    Saw Hoffman recently. The only remaining differences between him and Yoda at this point are pretty much just skin color, hair density, and force ability.

    I don't think i can complain about a 5-2 road trip leading into the all-star break.

    Considering how there were comments regarding the difficulty of the Twins' first half schedule, may i propose a "surgical tubing" version of the rubber band theory?

    Or do i have to wait to hear how the rotation turns out?

    Also, you already knew this, but we didn't:

    "Conrad, like his fellow candidates, underwent several days of what they considered to be invasive, demeaning, and unnecessary medical and psychological testing at the Lovelace Respiratory Research Institute in New Mexico. Unlike his fellow candidates, Conrad rebelled against the regimen. During a Rorschach inkblot test, he told the psychiatrist that one blot card revealed a sexual encounter complete with lurid detail. When shown a blank card, he turned it around, pushed it back and replied "It's upside down".[8] Then when he was asked to deliver a stool sample to the onsite lab, he placed it in a gift box and tied a red ribbon around it. Eventually, he decided that he had had enough. After dropping his full enema bag on the desk of the clinic’s commanding officer, he walked out.[9] His initial application to NASA was denied with the notation not suitable for long-duration flight."

    In other words, a posthumous TD Hall of Famer, among other things.

    Great link to the Winton article, btw.

    Yup, Conrad was something else. One of my favorite spacemen.

    The photo, of course, is of Joseph Banks Rhine. A spaceman of a very different kind.
