    This isn't me at all. I live on a farm, coach baseball and umpire, and work out every day. I don't use the internet much during the summer. I just like the Twins a lot.
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    Our kitchen light used to knock out the radio -- which was why it was exciting when we finally got FM radios for Christmas one year. I am not quite as old as it sounds, my parents were always slow on updating technology. I don't think we had a cassette player until the 80s. We had a phonograph that you could fold up like a suit case and move from room to room. I remember listening to old Jack Benny records when we came to Minnesota in our covered wagon.

    I think TK's monotone is bringing the whole team down.

    The Lucille Ball video link on the first page is quite good - even though you know the joke is coming, it's done so well you can't help yourself. Even the mean boss almost broke character

    Speaking of breaking character... Harvey Korman and Tim Conway... Those things used to make cry laughing so hard.
