The Twins Twelve Days of Christmas

Rate this Entry
As they say, "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year." Christmas comes at the beginning of next week and there are always things to be thankful for even if your favorite team has been terrible for a couple of seasons. It might be tough to see the light at the end of the tunnel but it's still not the time of year to be grouchy.

So here's a new version of an old Christmas favorite. The tune is to "The Twelve Days of Christmas." To get the full impact of the song, it should be sung as a cumulative song. This means that each verse is built on top of the previous verses. Here is a video of the original song if you need a refresher.

A couple of thoughts on the numbers used in this post:
  • There have been 12 different Twins players to win Gold Gloves.
  • There are 11 flags that fly over Target Field to represent the Twins trips to the postseason.
  • The franchise has eight retired numbers with the addition of Tom Kelly in 2012.
  • There are seven coaches that compose the big league staff.
  • The top six prospects in the organization are pretty easy to figure out but after that it can get a little dicey.
  • The rest of the numbers should be pretty easy to figure out.
