    Great, my wife just saw the score, it's going to be hard to convince her the game is still more important to watch than what ever reality program is currently playing on every other channel at the moment.

    I'm not sure if the Twins realize that watching the game is supposed to make me not want do other things around the house, as opposed to the other way around.
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    Boy, Correia sure does suck.

    Amazing how poorly Correia has been pitching. He had sustained success for a long time. Even the biggest critics couldn't have estimated him imploding this bad. I just was coming in to checkin on the game, I see there isn't much to check in on.
    Do or do not. There is no try.

    I'm kind of bummed about that, too. Their manager's aunt and uncle have lived right down the street from my parents for almost 40 years (I spent a good part of my childhood playing baseball in their back yard) and their pitching coach is from the same town (I umpired a lot of games while he was playing - I was in the same grade as his older brother.) I hope they can have a strong finish and convince management to give them another year, but it's a rough business.

How do you explain a rebuilding phase to an entry-level fan and get someone to buy in?
    Dollar dome dogs and random fan events between innings.

    On the bright side, I still have beer in the fridge. Also, if this game keeps going this way, I might have to start switch to whiskey.

    Obviously... You didn't help at all.

    Too bad he doesn't work for the Twins, where it's not quite so rough.

    If this team hasn't caused you to stock up enough already you're either not a serious fan or not a serious drinker.

    Or he drinks so much that he can't keep anything stocked.

    It's going to be a long night for the bullpen. I knew we'd miss Butera eventually.

    Sounds like the Saint's plan. Does it still work if it's $6 dollar dogs and random corporate paid advertising between innings?
