Well that's that.

It seems like a little while ago... We had a 5 run lead.

What's worse...getting up 5-0 early, only to lose...or...getting behind big early, and have the rally fall short?

I am not the paranoid you're looking for.

Seems like a little while ago Gene Larkin hit that fly ball.

Tomorrow's headline:

 

Greeks Fine Prostitutes

 

 

I know nobody every says "I don't get it" on this Twins Daily place you got going here but ... I don't get it.

 

Not that i'm sure i get it either, but speculate it is some complex linguistical humor where "fine" operates as both an adjective and a verb.

 

That said, I'm wondering how people get their hands on tomorrow's paper, as some of those are intriguing...

'Fines' as a verb reads one way, as an adjective it goes a different direction.Not funny?That's fine, you can fine me.

If they're going to give half a dozen Holds to the winning team tonight for maintaining a 2-run lead, they could throw couple to the losing team for maintaining a close enough deficit.

Going to the game, thinking you get to see a win for once at Target Field, then watching the opposing team slowly take away all your happiness.

Yeah, this game was painful - so much hope at the beginning, only to see all the good things frittered away.

 

If they are going to lose, I'd prefer that it be falling just short after battling back.
