    Yeah metric has never caught on in the US, what's with that SABRMETRIC community anyway? You'd think they might find a use for it.

    Um, Morneau went 4 for 5 tonight and scored 2 runs.

    Looking now to see how Span did.

    It's an exception to the standard english-to-metric conversion rule, which is to "double it, and add 30".

    If you're interested in learning more about it, there's an educational album by acclaimed Canadian educators Bob and Doug McKenzie:

    If I were the Twins, I would have the ushers hand out bobbleheads or something to every fan who is sufficiently loyal to still be in the stadium right now.

    So Mrs Chief and I took the dog (Kirby) for a walk, had a nice visit out in the garage, she said she was going up to bed, I said "I think I'll finish the Twins game."

    She just looked at me and said, sadly, "Why?" More to herself than to me.

    Damn that woman and her impeccable logic.

    Twins may need to bring in Perkins just to get home tonight.
