    For sure if it's a rainout. But don't forget lawn care and auto detailing on nice days.

    As a representative of your team, you've been a breath of fresh air, Jack. Hope all you techie-type guys have that sense of humor.

    I'm sure it is nothing that I can imagine. That would be a cool pod-cast to take us behind the scenes and show us what it looks like. How about the mid-season thread?
    Do or do not. There is no try.

    If you make a run at the OF wall, go for the left field corner in the morning. The sun in the guards' eyes will more than make up for the extra 11 feet.

    Oh, c',mon, give us a little more credit. If you were really looking for a Write Club bout over Ortiz, you'd find yourself a match much faster at http://www.startribune.com/sports/twins/.

    The site mostly limits itself to second-guessing and obsessing over moves made in the past decade. Helps avoid alienating the occasional under-40 visitor with angry, obscure, 'get off my lawn, Ron Davis!' chatter.

    First rule of Write Club. You do not talk about Write Club.

    Some budding comedy writers on this site, wonderful. "Common Man" needs some competition.

    Your accidental ban of Jack (on the assumption that it was an impersonator) remains one of the funniest things to happen in the history of the world.
