I was waiting for someone to remind me of the game thread I need to write and finally gave up waiting. I decided I needed to get on my butt and get it done. I guess I've learned I shouldn't sit around waiting for people to remind of my obligations. That, and I managed to remember that I needed to do a game thread.
Well, the Twins split the doubleheader (probably would have won the first if they could have batted Polanco back to back) by pounding the ball over the fence in the second game.
The Sox have gone into rebuild mode and are debuting a starting pitcher by the name of Lucas Giolito. The Twins are trotting out Kyle Gibson on this fine evening.
Why is it a fine evening, you ask? Well, baseball is on. So, by the very fact we have baseball, it's a fine evening.
It has really turned into a great season. The Twins are contending for a wild card and the Sox are not. Even more amazing than watching our Twins play meaningful baseball this year is that last year, well, never mind. It's last year and a bad memory. And, with the core group the Twins have, let's hope THAT year (no longer will it be referred to by year, it will be THAT year) remains a bad memory.
With that out of the way, some random thoughts:
Easiest road trip in the US: Highway 10 from LA to Jacksonville FL. No map needed. Just drive west on 10 from LA until the highway ends. Of course, one may not wish to start in LA and prefer to go the other direction. Either way works.
Easiest way to double your money: Fold it, put it back in your pocket.
Easiest way to get fired from a job: Don't show up for a few months. Eventually, your employer will figure it out.
Easiest way to lose money: Put the money somewhere you're "sure" you'll remember where it is.
Easiest way to write a baseball thread: Find someone else to do it. Then take all the credit and none of the blame.
With that, Play Ball!
