Uh ... you put mustard on those? Not ketchup?

Since the Twins were down, I figured I'd better put extra "catch up" on this one ...

 

OK, I'll see myself out now

Be sure and let us know when you see one. And where.

Good win. I don’t remember the Tigers rolling over for us the way they’ve rolled over for the Indians. The Tigers are awful but damn can they at least win 1?

I ate a chicken corn dog in the middle of this game.

 

Coincidence?

 

Nah ... no way.

Did it have spicy mustard?

Because, if not, you cost the Twins a run.

I can be if you add them together.

I'd rather not risk breaking my calculator. Not sure it can deal with digits that large.

Yikes.

 

I think those things deserve only the cheapest ketchup imaginable.

 

Maybe even catsup.

 

And only at close-to-expiry-date sale price.

Nah ... no way.

While the results were excellent, I still have to ask, "Why?"
