Too true, unfortunately.
And, alas, now I'll be singing "The Boxer" all day ....
and he carries the reminders of every glove that laid him down ... kind of like Twins fans.

I wonder what the percentage of posters is who get the song reference. 20%?

Good question. I was tempted not to even include the parenthetical "hint", but I figured if I did that, only the really old farts (like JB and me) would catch it.

The start's important. As I understand it, MLB is going to start us out on the road every year to avoid cold weather; past couple of years, we've started with the AL East (yes?). As long as that continues, sucking early is going to bury us year after year - - - the Central isn't THAT weak.
This team is far more entertaining than last year - - - - except when they play the Rays (ugh!).

Those whores on Seventh Avenue are the best.
Or so I've been told.
