    Let me tell you something, Leland-do. You pull any of your crazy #### with us, you flash a piece out on the lanes, I'll take it away from you, stick it up your ### and pull the ####### trigger 'til it goes "click."

    The background score was a bit more Tarantino or 70's porn, but the casting was spot on. Sa-weet. The cut-off Zubaz were a nice touch.

    If Mauer has more issues this year with his legs and seeing time behind the plate, do you think the chants will be: "You're out of your ******* element, Mauer!"

    The Twins advertising department continues to be one of the best in all of baseball.

    While I am not a fan of the Big Lebowski movie, Kent Hrbek is a Minnesota icon. What a fabulous commercial. Looks like Herbie is running a little on the heavy side these days...

    Great movie and it's a good commercial. Wish Hrbek would have had a line or two and I worry about his health. He looks real heavy, please don't do a "Puck" on us, Herbie.

    I must be the only one out there who doesn't think that highly of the Big Hrbowski. Love the Big Lewbowski by the way. Certainly not one of the better commercials of late. It is a clever idea, but it doesn't do much for me. Would have preferred Hrbek play the role of Walter. Looks more like him.

    Well that's just like...your opinion, man.
