I am writing on this website because of my ipad.
When I started graduated school this June at the University of Minnesota in the Masters in Education/Mathematics Education initial licensure program my professor gave everyone his ipad education sales pitch. He said to us that through his experience and constant networking he found that school districts in the state are now starting to put curriculum on their on ipads. Thus getting one could highly increase the probability of us getting hired. So I had a little extra money saved up, and splurchased on the ipad 3 64 GB. Which I now realize that 64 GB is way way way more memory that I needed. But such is life..

Anyway, through the ipad I download the twitter app and I started just out of curiosity to follow some seroius twins fans. I think it went a little something like this.. Twins President Dave st. Peter lead me Parker Hagman ,who happens to live in the same town as my parents. (We should meet up sometime Parker...) Then I followed Twins Geek, and then through SABR i started to follow Cee Angie.... haha I can tell I am addicted twitter becauseas I write this I am expecting to @ mention them. My twitter addcition continued as the summer progressed and through the SABR 42 convention.

I attended the SABR 42 convention and met some more serious baseballs fans, some of which I was following on twitter. Although I did not introduce myself to some of the hardcore fans like, Cee Angi, Aaron Gleeman, and Twins geek because honestly I couldnt come up with anything good to stay. Also THE AVERAGE OF AGE SABR MEMBERS IS 55. I am only only 22....But that convention changed my life because it conviced me that I needed to stop consuming and start producing on my passion, obsession, and addiction of Baseball. I can read about it all day if time allowed.

I would love to be a professional newspaper reader who everyday reads the newspaper of all 30 teams in the country. Even today, the only way I can get myself out of bed in the morning is convinceing myself that I get to read the Star Tribune and see how the twins did. But now that I have a smart phone with the ESPN scorecenter app I simply do not read what Lavell E Neal ( wavle as we call him in our family) and Joe C write everyday. Because I know how my Twins did. Plus I really get sick of Gardy and some of the players saying the same old " we won today because we battle our tails off" or another old cliche. Ugh give me freshness, give me spice ,give me something. Anyway through twitter, I found Twinsdaily.com a fan forum that has an excellent hub of seroius twins fans like me. My first comment was about why the Twins shouldnt trade with the cardinals because of Kyle Lohse. Which there really was not any merit behind it as but I just wanted to get my first comment on there. I was ripped a new one. Lesson learned. Come up with something good say and do not care what other people think.

As I mentioned in a comment before my Brother is a serous college hockey fan/UMD Bulldogs fan and he started posting on http://board.uscho.com/ every weekend. He even met his fiance out of it. So that might be possible but who knows what life has in store for me. As TwinsGeek said on his website, The easy part of blogging is getting going, the hard part is keeping people interested. I will try to have some different opinions about baseball besides Joe Mauer sucks this year even though he is having a good one with some numbers that I am too lazy to post. Also, one last thing..

And who knows what this blog has store for me. But I know that I love baseball, I love my ipad, and I love twitter.

    Well I can say I'm glad my elementary education major of a daughter doesn't read this site. She'd be using this to "prove" to her dad that she needs a new iPad... and if dad buys one of those for anyone, it will be for himself!

    Welcome to blogdom, Scott

    Keep a very thick skin and you will be fine. Oh, and blog alot about how Gardy and the FO all need to be fired. We don't see enough of that around here. (Sorry, somebody needs to invent a sarcasm icon)

    I'll give an iPad tip. If you plan on using it o post on the forum or blog, there are some great protective cases that double as keyboards. Having a keyboard has changed how I use the ipad.

    Also, don't worry about being ripped a new one. We're definitely moving towards more civility.

    Finally, welcome. We're happy to have you here whether you blog, post, comment or just read.

    Jim- Keep the ipad a secret from you daughter as long as possible...
    Glunn, Thanks for the compliment. A first time blogger needs positive support.

    Fire Dan Gladden, We need to talk on why you hate Gladden. I personally love having him on telecasts. But why the hate? Maybe you have a recent post or comment or blog on why you hate him?

    John Thanks for the Ipad Tip. Although I have just bought 50 dollar belkin case, one crappy screen 3m screen protector which is now in the waste basket, and one top of the line one from Zagg, I think I will hold off on a keypad for now at least.

    Also, does Twins Daily do any meets up during the year? I think it would be a great tradition if we rented out the Budweiser Roof Deck for a game once a year. That way we could all mingle, not be restricted by phsyicalily of seats and drink. Although I hear that the Roof Deck is high demand and sold out for ever game. But maybe that is hearsay.

    Also, my next blog will be about TK and Marney Gelhner..... I need to edit them more...
