Twins had a terrific May in 1990 and then the wheels came off and they finished in last place. Also in 1992, a season after their WS winning season, the Twins owned the best record in baseball at the All Star break and then ended up not even making the playoffs. I'll take this season one game at a time and keep cheering! Go Twins,Oldf man here with alot of Memories on this day!!

In honor of the First Minnesota Volunteer Infantry Regiment, one of the first, if not THE first unit offered up by a state governor (Gov Ramsey) in response to President Lincoln's call for volunteers after the fall of Ft Sumter.

 

A remarkable story all Minnesotans should be proud, particularly the unit's action on the second day at Gettysburg.

At some point, yes, it will be played.

Well, if we get to the end of the season and haven't played it yet, and it doesn't matter to the outcome of the standings of either team, then yes, we'll have to get it in there.

Because I think it might be currently raining in Mpls, but it doesn't appear that it will still be raining by game time or soon thereafter. Given the most excellent drainage system at Target Field, unless it's just torrential downpours for the next 3-4 hrs, I think they will get the game in tonight. Maybe not starting exactly on time, but I think they will get it in. Of course, that could change, but, we won't know it won't be played today until the Twins announce it won't be played today. That they haven't announced that yet, who knows what the future will be.

Speaking of torrential downpours, I was driving through Oklahoma a couple of days ago and got caught in a rain storm that took visibility almost to zero. Had to pull over on the shoulder until the storm let up.

When did you start paying attention? Didn't anyone get me the memo? Oh, wait, that means I haven't been paying attention....

Ah, i see.

Weather.

Or rather, i don't see, but i do understand.

In the greater Boston area it is sunny and perhaps mid 60F's-ish? Very pleasant over all and sneaky sunburning time.

I am just relaxing after a 4th Memorial day parade this weekend.

Pretty sure paying attention is a sucker's bet.

Then people start expecting things from you...

It’s rainy and gloomy here right now. Supposed to start clearing up in a couple of hours. I’d guess there might be a delay but they’ll probably get it in.
