Greenland's too good for 'im, eh?


Iceberg off the coast of Greenland will do.

The NFL Draft is Thursday... I wonder which QB the Vikings get.


The N+1st best in an N player draft.

What a coincidence. Hank Greenberg did well off the coast of Iceland, back in the day.

Two more wild pitches and Colabello -- which in Lakota means Beautiful Friend -- is home.

The Twins' Greenberg in the month of April had one of his better AB's of the past week or so.

Forgot: It's also Beautiful Sugar Water, but I'm repeating myself. I see a future w/DickBert.

I thought Colabello means in Lakota... "Looks Funny in Pants".

Based on my extensive research of Lakota language and culture, can definitely rule out the possibility that his name means "Fluffy Bunny Feet"...

I've used that name as a forum handle before.

Oh, I mentioned the Lakota name thing a game or two ago, and given how DickBert repeat themselves, I thought maybe if I brought up this again it would be noticed and I'd be in the booth someday. Like, repeating things.

Good grief, I suck.

I am done with Gardy. Continuing to put florimann out there is the last straw for me. I want him gone.

I don't know, it is a site to discuss sports, not airline safety.....maybe we should take it less seriously?

Tooka Chinchilla? Me too, but had to drop it after a dreadful legal battle with a casino up north.

On a totally unrelated note, the avatar is great. Taking rescue carnivore rabbits for a walk is something to be proud of. Well done.

So no Mauer? Does anyone know if he is available to hit?

He's day to day with back spasms, he went out of yesterday's game in the third. He was supposedly hunched over before the game yesterday, but walking upright today.

Don't worry, he'll go on the DL in a week and stay there until July.
