    On the bright side, this series has gifted the Twins with a chance to dramatically outperform their season Pythagorean projection for the next several weeks. Thanks for making a bad game fun, everyone!

    You don't need to worry about Brian either. Brian doesn't know the meaning of the word 'quit'.

    Brian doesn't know the meaning of a lot of other words either.

    Well, if they'd had boys instead of girls, they would have just sent them next door to live once they hit their teens.

    Our first dog was an Australian Cattle Dog, like in your gif. He was way to intelligent to have me as an owner and trainer.

    It was cool having two houses next door to each other for a while. We called it The Compound.

    Gibbybunkport! Sorry, couldn't resist. Time to go start burning perfectly good food on the grill. Enjoy the tournament; TD is pulling for the Slovakian Rough Painter!

    Not sure it affects the Projection that much... The 9 run loss is mostly balanced out by yesterday's 8 run win. 1-2 series outscored 17-19.

    I'm just sad we lost our first rubber game of the season. I have not yet lost faith in the rubber band though!

    And yeah, i wish to associate myself with the above sentiment of makin' a game fun in spite of the outcome.
