Best one so far!

It's been a fun year so far, GO Twins. Oh, and I have at least one blog post now......The table on my first blog post is now fixed. Sigh.

A story about my family on Twins Daily!! I'd feel honored, except this hit a little too close to home.

Same here. I only opened the article because I thought it might eventually tell me the correct pronunciation. I guess Marvin and Merlin are in play until someone tells me otherwise.

Excellent Craig Kilborn reference. An underrated Minnesota legend!

Pronunciation: \MAR-win\

 

You're on your own, for the last name.

It is amazing how many eggs one can break without making a decent omelet.

My dads name was Merwyn. “Mert”. Do we call him “Mart”. I am so confused

"A person close to the situation said this has the potential to be Your Dad’s greatest Twins-related befuddlement since the Mike Pagliarulo Incident of 1991." Lest we forget the horrifying "Doug Mintcabbage" incident that began in 1998!
