Anyone notice the former Twins having a good game for the Blue Jays?

I walked in just as Dozier was getting caught between 2nd and 3rd. Ugh.


But then that's what I get for making potato salad at 9:00 at night.

You know what I just realized? That the backdrop on Gameday is the actual stadium they are playing at. Well, duh. What a moment of revelation.

I draw energy fron Brian's musings on the line-up post.

For a whole year I read his name as Riverbrain.

With or without mustard? Egg? Pimento or relish in it?

Mustard, no egg, celery, pimento, no relish, Miracle Whip and some herbs, vinegar and sugar, salt and pepper.

My cousins are moving one of my aunts from a house to a duplex tomorrow. We were supposed to pick her up about noon - thought we'd just take her out. But now one of her grandchildren is bringing her over at 9:30 a.m. so I invited one of her friends for lunch.

And frankly, it was 85 degrees here today so it'll be potato salad, fruit salad and barbecue chicken sandwiches cuz I'm not up to anything in the oven regardless of A/C.

I don't know...

"Play ball" is traditional.

I bet i could come up with worse. Both to the game and the game thread...

I actually read it that way for a long time as well. I suppose it is only natural to see the word brain after reading his well-constructed essay style game thread starter posts as well as his shorter observations... or something like that...

On a platter.

With first base open, that's a pretty unforgivable serving.

Omg. I hope that 85 hits here soon. Was just downright cold today.

Hmmm, not an auspicious start for Gibson.

I apologize for that. We had a power failure at work. It's causes major issues and killed my computer so I couldn't log on.

finally got things back to normal and got home just in time for first pitch.

We are in the mid-high 80's for the next 10 days assuming the forecast is somewhat correct. You've got to get it sometime.
