And now, ladies and gentlement, a haiku for Chief...

 

Yes, concur, winnah!

You know where you stand with Chief.

It's a TD thing.

 

(oops... originally typed "It's a TB thing," but tuberculosis wasn't what I meant.)

TB would have worked too, believe it or not.

 

Oh, and thanks!

Well, there's only one other option, so it must be 2 out of 3, no?

Other than gil, and without looking it up, who can name the artist who performed "Stuck in the Middle with You"?

Steeler's Wheel! (I did not look it up.)

Wanted to "like," but had to take points off for spelling.

You're welcome, friend. I had a haiku for Willihammer, too, but he changed his avatar, so now I can't talk about his purdy lips.

His purdy lips are better than Dozier's head on the Kool-Aid man.

I found a full track list.  (It was something to do while the Twins were throwing the game away.)

 

 

The Lord's Prayer

Sister Janet Mead

 

Nuns do not seem to rule the pop charts like they used to.

 

I would not mind some wild pitch -- strange error combos to get a few scores like we seemed to get early in the season.  I will take a run anyway I can get it - I am not proud.

&#^$ swing the bat.  Colabello with the bases loaded.  Fuld with the tying run on 3rd.  Swing the freaking bat with two strikes.

 

Let's get some actual hitters on this team.

I won't let the outcome of the game damper my excitement of the 7000th post.  No one can take that away from me.

Who knew you could be rung up for just looking?

 

There's another game tomorrow.

Bad hitting, bad baserunning and bad defense. They looked worse than a little league team tonight. The "Twins Way", alas, officially exists no more.
