Hi, Joseph Self here (I haven't outgrown my nickname of Joey with my friend).
I didn't see the questionnaire before I wrote the introduction below, so I'll leave it.
1.) Where are you from? Western Arkansas
2.) Age Range? Early 60's
3.) What brought you to Twins Daily? Twitter
4.) Highest level of baseball/softball played?High school, although I did play a couple of games of American Legion, but quit when I wasn't good enough to play at that level.
5.) Favorite Twins Player, and favorite underappreciated Twins player, and if you want, favorite current Twins player? Of all time, Tony Oliva.Currently, I guess I'd go with Buxton, but Arraez is moving up fast if he can stay healthy.
6.) Favorite non-Twins Daily site/authors? Oh, I'm all over the place
7.) Favorite Twitter follows? @mzheminway @andrewcmccarthy @strongmarriages5
8.) Other interests outside of baseball. In addition to being an attorney, I'm also a fill-in preacher, and teach a weekly Bible class when we are able to meet.
9.) Favorite part of Twins Daily... forums, blogs, articles, topics... wahtever you like. Don't know, just got here.
10.) Tell us what we can do better. What features or other topics would you like to see in-season or out of season? Don't know, just got here
11.) Have you been to any of the Twins Daily "events?" No, I live a LONG way from Minneapolis.
I'm a 62 year old attorney, practicing in Fort Smith, AR. I've been a Twins fan since 1966--not sure why, probably because I saw them play on TV some Saturday and they won.During the 70's, I had a transistor radio, and one night I accidently found WHO in Des Moines carrying a Twins game.I didn't touch the dial the rest of the summer for fear I'd never find it again.
During the 80's and 90's, I still called them my top team, but I watched at least 80 Braves games a year on TBS, making them my #2 team.When they faced off in '91, I didn't hesitate to root for the Twins.
Flash forward to a few years ago when I got the Extra Inning service on DirectTV (now on Roku), and I have been watching at least 100 games a year since then (almost all on the DVR so I can fast forward through commercials or between batters).
Looking forward to chatting with more Twins fans.
