    Lightbulb Improvement for Twins Home Games - NO DANCE OFF!!! Plus two more

    My three best ideas on how to improve the Twins game day experience:
    #1: Get rid of the Mayo Clinic Dance Off - before I end out in a Mayo Clinic "rubber room!"
    #2: Get rid of the canned "Day-Oh" cheer (unless Samuel Deduno makes the team - then change it to "Day-Du-Noh, Day-Doo-oo-oo-noh"). Could someone explain the significance of the "Day-Oh" thing anyways????
    #3: Bring back the trees in the center field batter's eye - End the curse that started when they were uprooted and help our pitchers accumulate some better stats, too.

    Just don't bring back the "Hormel Row of Fame" song (It's O.K. to bring back the Mexican Hat Dance)

    I thought this thread was going to link a statement saying they had eliminated the dance-off and I was giddy to click into the thread and read about it.

    And now I'm disappointed. I should ban you for ruining my day like that.

    Sorry, but it's time to start the groundswell of fans who want to rid Target Field of the uber-annoying Dance Off. If the team is going to be below-average (at best), then at least we can have a better game experience by dumping the Dance Off.

    Fans don't take the dance-off seriously enough. They always just vote for the kid. Some fans really bust a move and should be awarded. I don't want to see some lame kid wave his arms while his Dad or Mom holds him up. Kids generally have terrible dance moves.

    I also think that anyone who does push-ups instead of dancing should be immediately banned from Target Field and possibly Minnesota as well.

    We'll never get rid of the dance-off, so let's improve it.

    There have been times when certain contestants have made the Dance Off....well....fun to watch. Perhaps they just need to find more of those types of contestants???? I'll leave it at that.

    Unless they're all kids, which I saw once. Then the Dance-Off gets uncomfortable because you're hurting two of the three kids' feelings.

    If a kid isn't in the dance off, then the fans vote for the best looking gal. I can't believe that I'm getting into the nuances of the dance off. Let's just get rid of it.

    I'm sorry, I just can't use that measure. We need a universal and standard measure to better understand who the best dancer is. We need a WAR for these dances. Otherwise, I just simply don't know how to evaluate the best dancer, and the pleebs in the crowd certainly don't either.
    Works on contingency? No, money down!

    The #1 way to improve home games is put a team out there that I want to go pay money to see. All that other crap I couldn't care less about.

    Or they could just put three really good looking girls out there to dance. I bet most of the guys on this site would think that would improve the dance off a lot.
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    I agree with all 3. Although, one of the times I went to Target the dance off was pretty good. Some middle aged, somewhat fat guy went flat back to the ground and just started pushing himself around by kicking his feet. I was entertained by that and he won in a landslide for the record.

    How about we deport them from the United States too? Or shuttle them off to Venus?

    Without the Dance-Off though, I wouldn't have heard any cheers or applause last year

    Does anyone understand why we should be entertained by the "Under Water" cam that doesn't do anything on the big screen? That one baffles me.

    For the price of the ticket, and considering the quality of the team they may be putting on the field, a lap dance for each patron who wants one should not be taken completely off the table for discussion. At least, install stripper poles at various locations in the stands.

    If it halts the behavior, then sure, works for me.

    Just go to Kaczmuracks.....a brat from them and you can even withstand feeling sorry for the poor children they march out in small bear costumes that invariably look miserable and uncomfortable.
