I grew up in Winona, went to school someplace not far from there, ended up in the Cities for about 13 years before work took me 'abroad.' Returned to the States and have been working and living in Chicago for the last, almost 17 yrs. I'm a musician and am one of the lucky ones who make a good living at it, although no longer performing. (You can read my TD profile, if you like, although it's really not that much more illuminating.)
I'm old enough and have been a Twins fan since birth.
Best memories? Oooh boy ... lots. Getting Rod Carew's autograph when he was a Twin. Beating Detroit in '87 for the AL Championship and the rally that night at the Dome. The '87 and '91 World Series. The many, many Spring Trainings I've been to. My first trip to Target Field ... which ended up not being for a game because the ticket I had was for the only game that was rained out the year it opened. And I couldn't stay long enough to go to the make-up game. So friends of mine who 'knew people' got me into the stadium to walk around, wherever, unescorted. Any time the Twins beat the White Sox when they are in Chicago. Buxton's inside-the-park HR last year was fun ... he hadn't quite rounded 2nd when I knew it, when any Twins fan knew it, and I'm at the Cell near the front row on the 1st base side, jumping up and down, yelling, 'Inside the park! Inside the park!' with bemused White Sox fans looking on until they realized what I was screaming about after it was over a second later. Those are a few of the highlights out of many.
Some favorite players: Killebrew, Oliva, Carew, Gaetti, Hrbek, Puckett, Hunter, Johann, Dozier
I've been coming to TD since almost near the beginning, after BYTO folded itself into here. The articles and coverage, both major and minor, keep me coming back for more. And the community. Being outside Minnesota, I need a place so I don't feel quite so alone, an island unto myself amid White Sox fans in Chicago. (Yes, not Cubs' fans ... I live closer to White Sox territory here.) I'm reading something here whenever I have a minute and I read far more than I post.
