Watch Game 1 of the ALDS with Twins Daily!
Another great prize added and 120 more tickets released!
We sold out, so we're bringing a fifth 612 keg, plus you can win a Tony Oliva signed Twins hat if you wear Twins gear. But remember, you only get the free 612 craft beer and a chance to win the Rod Carew autographed bat if you get a ticket, and there are only 120 left. Reserve your tickets now!
The game time has been announced, and Twins Daily members have already claimed half the available tickets - and why not? Yesterday we announced a free 612 Brew craft beer if you sign up and show up. Today, we're announcing a Rod Carew autographed bat, because Rod told the Yankees to stick it. (That story is below.) Tickets are free, but you have to get one before they're all gone to get the beer and to win the bat!
Game time has been announced as 6:07 PM, so the event will start around 5:30 in the basement of Brothers Bar & Grill. All you have to do is check-in to get:
1. Your ticket for a 612 Craft Beer
2. Your raffle ticket for the Rod Carew signed bat
3. If you're wearing Twins gear, you can win a Tony Oliva signed hat!
4. Yet more tomorrow!
Rod Carew was courted by the Yankees back in 1979, after he was traded to the Angels. That was the time right after free agency had started, so owner George Steinbrenner was collecting all the big stars, like Reggie Jackson and Catfish Hunter. But he didn't get Carew, who re-signed with the Angels for five years and $4 million.
Steinbrenner tried to blame Carew, saying he didn't understand the privilege of playing for the Yankees. He also tried to trade for him before he went to the Angels, when he was still with the Twins. Ironically, to escape all the trade talk at that time, Carew went to stay with his mother - in Brooklyn. He read about being traded to the Angels in La Guardia Airport.
I don’t know if we’ll win or lose. I don’t know if we’ll get 50 people or 500. But I know we’re going to be watching Game 1 versus the Yankees together. (And Twins Daily is buying the kegs.)
Tickets are FREE. Just signup here, and you can join us at Brothers in Minneapolis and get a free 612 Brew craft beer, courtesy of Twins Daily. We’ll watch the game, and share the highs and lows with other Twins fans. Plus, there will be some giveaways and other stuff that we will announce the rest of the week.
Join the writers of Twins Daily and hundreds of other Twins fans at Brothers Bar & Grill in Minneapolis to watch the Twins finally stick it to the Yankees.
You can also just show up that day, but then you don’t get the free beer or any of the other goodies. Also, given that we’ve had 500-600 people show up for our Winter Meltdown parties, there is at least some chance that we could sell out and not be able to let people in who haven’t already reserved a ticket.
So be safe and grab one now. Bring a friend, or a spouse, a family member or the folks from work who you just discovered are also Twins fans. But whatever you do...
