RB missed this one in the intro thread.

My bad. First crack at a game thread. I'll work on it in the offseason.

Started with a Monty Python song, ending with another favorite:

The Galaxy Song:

 

The-Meaning-of-Life-monty-python-1786521

 

Our universe itself keeps on expanding and expanding,
In all of the directions it can whiz;
As fast as it can go, at the speed of light, you know,
Twelve million miles a minute and that's the fastest speed there is.
So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth;
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere out in space,
'Cause there's bugger all down here on Earth!

The fifth inning wall again for Berrios...

 

Bear down, Berrios! <clap clap clapclaplclap>

 

Bear down, Berrios! <clap clap clapclaplclap>

 

Everybody! Do it! NOW!

 

Bear down, Berrios! <clap clap clapclaplclap>

 

Edit: Berrios gets out of the jam and qualifies for the win. Congratulations, Game Thread, you're still my agent of Quan.

I hear the same words from the doctor when getting the colonoscopy.  Please bear down.

By the way, I saw Bill Murray today.  He told me the Twins will go from worst to first next year.  The USA won the Ryder Cup and because it was held in the Twin Cities we're gonna have Karma next year on our side.  If nothing else, he said the Twins fans will receive total mental consciousness on our death beds...At least we have that going for us!

 

Winner.

 

I get to declare a winner if I started the thread, right?

 

Either way, winner. Because Bill Murray, and optimism.

Toronto, hoping for looking for home field in the wild card, holding onto a 2-1 lead over the Red Sox in the bottom of the 9th. Big Papi coming up.

Stat track says Buxton's inside-the-parker was the fastest home to home time since they started recording it.

Glad I was able to see the finale in person. Now going home to watch the archived game, Twins feed, to see if I made it on TV.

In case you missed it, Parker Hageman posted this elsewhere in TD, so I'm hoping it's ok to link to it here, because it's hilarious and sad, but mostly hilarious...

Buxton 2-4 with 2B, HR, 2 RBI, BB.

Sano 2-4 with HR, 3 RBI, BB.

Kepler 2-3.

Berrios 5 IP, 1 ER, W.

 

 

More games like this from these 4 in 2017 could mean a lot more wins.

I'm old. Been a Twins fan from day one. I would like another good year. There haven't been so many. Despite this years record, with some pitching and catching, I have great hope for next year.
