Touch Em All Pub Crawl T-Shirt Unveiled

Sometimes, things get so bad that you either have to laugh or cry. We’re choosing the former for our logo and T-shirts for our 2016 Twins Daily Touch Em All Pub Crawl. The complimentary T-shirts will be high-quality triblend Bella + Canvas, in both men’s and women’s styles, perfect for wearing ironically during the Twins 2017 postseason run.

Why I Still Write About Sports at Times Like This

It's been a hard fall for me to write in these spaces. Every evening I try to sit down to write, I find a dozen other things to do. There are papers to grade and recommendations to submit and people to actually be married to. So while I love to write, and even though I want to write, it slips through my fingers more often than I like.

This past week, I had the time, I had the energy, but every time I opened up this page, I stopped and stared. And as the feeds from North Minneapolis streamed into my phone, as people I love and trust engaged in louder and louder protests for more pressing matters than quality sports analysis, I couldn't find it in myself to write.

Save The Date: Twins Daily's Touch 'Em All Pub Crawl!

We’ve waited four long years to watch meaningful September games, so we're going overboard for 2015’s Twins Daily Touch ‘Em All Pub Crawl.

This will be the biggest and best ever. PLEASE set aside the 19th of September, starting at noon on your calendar, then take a minute and tell your friends to set it aside too. While you’re at it, you may want to set a reminder for yourself the morning of Thursday, September 3rd, because that’s when tickets will go on sale, and we only have so much room in some of these bars.
