    I guess its possible we were 6 decades behind the times. (Thinks for a second) Yeah we probably were.

    I had a Durango for 10 years. I loved every minute of it. Until I had to fill the tank.

    If Snepp or Bombo or Hammer were here... They'd find a photo or GIF for it.

    Oh, cool. I haven't driven one, but I'd like to check it out.

    Also, and I truly apologize for talking about baseball, but how about that Pino guy?

    Although, I've been married for 33 plus years, so this shouldn't come as such a surprise.
    Oh, I thought you were going to say you were napping.

    Indeed. I believe the origins of the phrase came from when we squatted low in our foxholes on those long, cold winter nights.

    Before the game, Colabello tweeted to many of his Rochester teammates for the rain to go away b/c they wanted to see Yohan deal.

    I know there were those on TD who would have preferred to see someone else brought up ... but it's easy to overlook how great it must be for many of the journeymen in Rochester to see one of their own make his major league debut.

    Has to be an inspiration.

    I have been driving a Camaro convertible all week -- a rental. It's not easy to get in and out of it, but fun to drive. Because it's a rental, I have not hesitated to drive it like a rented mule.

    Pino is a pleasant surprise. The Twins need to get him a run.

    I used to drive a 1967 Valiant if it makes you feel any better.

    Damn I miss that car.

    It's my first Dodge and I haven't second guessed getting it. I've bought sandwiches and second guessed getting them.

    I drove my kid's new Camaro out to LA last summer. What an awesome road trip.

    Yeah Pino looked great... Now what... I don't know if the Twins were planning on keeping him... I'd be bummed if he didn't get another start.

    I don't think he's seen 90 all night, although with his change up his fastball probably looks about 95 to some guys.
