Game-time forecast: Partly cloudy. Winds blowing out to left field at 5-10 m.p.h. Temperature around 90.
And now that ModCon is over, and we are all on our way to recuperation, and Brian was possibly given too much to think about, he should have no problem finishing out the year here! Let's play ball!
Yeah... I Suppose... But I can't remember how to do it. I think I used to start with... umm... Something?
Thinks to Thing About: (You see what I'm saying... Even that part doesn't feel right)
A. ModCon14 -- The moderators had an awesome time at Modcon14. First off... The Mods all have awesome wives and they all need to be careful that they don't realize that they are more awesome then they are. We saw a lot of baseball and a lot of runs scored. We walked approximately 97 miles total the entire weekend. Mostly back and forth over the same ground. It would have been much more productive to keep moving in the same direction... Because we could have been in St. Cloud. It was fantastic to see everyone face to face. Snepp for example has a beard that has a part time job at a car wash. Diehard doesn't have any hair... I think it's possible that Snepp stole it for use in his beard. ChiTown walks real fast and is the only one who knows where to go... This caused problems because we got lost when she was 3 blocks ahead and around the corner and out of sight. That's how we ended up in Dinkytown by accident. North had real Canadian money in his wallet and it looked like he painted it himself. Chief did not bring any weapons of any sort to protect us... like he was supposed to and Ash while riding in my car... was screaming let me out... let me out... let me out... in his head... while I stopped at Green Lights and drove through Red Lights. I know he was screaming in his head... I could see it in his eyes and I could see it in his eyes because I wasn't looking forward through the windshield while driving. I also found out that Glunn is a big fan of chickens, ABBA, human generosity and kindness and he was surprised there wasn't any snow.
2. Kansas City Again -- Kansas City is an alleged City on the Missouri/Kansas Border. The only way it qualifies as a city is because the name of the city has the word city in it. They felt it was necessary to add city to differentiate it from the state. Otherwise it would be Kansas Kansas and this would cause a stuttering epidemic. And... And... Of course... The song would be Dust Dust in the Wind Wind and nobody would have sang along to that.
C. The Royals -- The Twins tried their best to help the Royals this weekend. We won the first two before dropping the last two. While the Twins Split with the Tigers... The Royals ended up splitting with the combination of Rangers and Yankees. So it's a Wash. We tried to help you Kansas City. Don't count on our help for this series.
47D. Offense -- The Twins offense is in real high gear right now... Either that... or the Tigers pitching staff is in low gear. The Twins scored 42 runs in 4 games. Just for comparison... 42 is the exact number of times that my wife has told me that the TV or Radio is too loud so far in August. So... if that doesn't give you an accurate impression of how many runs the Twins scored... I don't know what will. On the bad side of things... The Twins allowed 31 runs this weekend. Just for Comparison... 31 is the exact number of times that my wife has told me to not turn my socks inside out when I take them off since June. So... that will help you determine that 31 runs is way too many.
Five. Stolen Pleasure -- As I was saying goodbye to Snepp... I told him "it was a pleasure to meet him" and it sincerely was... Snepp responded by saying "the pleasure was all his". To that I responded... "Well... you just took all the pleasure out of it".
Am I Right? ... If the pleasure is all his... That means he just took it all for himself and left me pleasure-less.
