Deep Fried Turkey Accidents as Twins Playoff Losses: Twins Daily Investigates
Image courtesy of Flickr/Gunther HagleitnerEvery year, the Minnesota Twins find a way to disappoint in the playoffs. Every year, America finds a way to keep insurers from enjoying their Thanksgiving dinner in peace. Are these two things connected? We're just asking questions. The silence that follows speaks for itself.
An exhaustive Twins Daily investigation has determined that the following videos of what our nephew Travis calls "epic Thanksgiving fails" best reflect each postseason failure since 2004. It's science, and as we've seen this year, you can't argue with science.
The 2006 ALDS (Torii Hunter dives; Torii Hunter misses)
The 2010 ALDS (First year in Target Field, but it sure didn't feel any different.)
The 2009 ALDS (PHIL EFF WORD CUZZI)
The 2020 AL Wild Card (You remember this! It just happened!)
The 2004 ALDS (This disappointment can get its license now. Just like you, Travis.)
The 2017 AL Wild Card (We were so excited to be back in the playoffs! Then the playoffs started!)
The 2019 ALDS (Just...man. I mean.)
When you see it all laid out like this, it's a bracing reminder that history doesn't repeat, but if often rhymes. Then it burns down your outbuilding.
