    Twins fans near Seattle?

    The Twins will be in Seattle in late July. I'm considering making the trip up there for one or more games. I seem to recall somebody who posts here living in that region, but I can't remember who. If you'd be interested in meeting up with a fellow TDer for one of these games, drop me a note.

    It depends on your defintion of "near". I'm nearer to Seattle than to Minneapolis. I think you're looking for NorthwestTwinsFan Senior Member Triple-A

    That's actually a possibility sometime. I have three kids, scattered to the three biggest population centers on the west coast.

    This year the Twins will be in Anaheim on Monday July 22 through Weds July 24. Is there a chance that you could be here for that? What if I can persuade Olivia to be your date?

    Is that an open invitation?.....Party at Glunn's house!!!

    Alas, I only get to Anaheim every January which means no baseball and I refuse to watch a hockey team that calls themselves the Ducks (Teemu or no Teemu).

    Too bad the Twins trip goes directly from Anaheim to Seattle. I was envisioning this as a road trip, and adding SoCal completely changes the complexion of it. I think Anaheim has to be next year.

    Now, if you could actually deliver Olivia's consent to attend, that would completely change the complexion again - but it would have to be viewed as a date for my son there, not for me. I'd just be an interested onlooker.

    Please continue your research.

    Drop me a note if your plans firm up.

    We should all plan a mass invasion of Glunn's place. Just to get a taste of Beverly Hills living. I'm sure Grand Forks is very similar to Beverly Hills but I'd like to find out for sure. I've been to Seattle... nice place but unannounced home invasions would be more fun.

    I'm sure that Beverly Hills is exactly like Grand Forks - just with a 0 added to every price tag.

    Clearly you've never been to Grand Forks.......it would be two zeros.

    Next year could be good, if we are done remodeling by then.
