Unfortunately, or, fortunately, depending on your view of my game thread openers, this one isn't much more than a "mail it in edition."

 

kitten
 
*Internet 101: When in doubt, go for the kitten.
 
But, when things seem bleakest, there's always music to pick you up:
 

 

*Recorded at the old Blues Alley, Minneapolis, Good times, good times.

 

The Twins are at Texas for a 4 game series, and, since the race in the Central has heated up, should be a good chance for the Twins to gain some ground on Cleveland. 

 

It's crunch time and we've got a barn burner of a race for the division title this year.

 

And, with that, we go to the 5 things that should, or should not, be mentioned:

 

1. Parkay or Butter?

2. Skim or Whole milk?

3. Cheese or Cheez Whiz?

4. Coke or Pepsi?

 

 

Lineups:

 

 

5. Play ball!

10 days ago I was expecting the Twins to be up 5 games after this coming Sunday. Then again I was also expecting them to go 5-2 against ATL and CLV instead of 2-5. I guess a 2 -1/2 game lead after Sunday is the best we can hope for.

It's great to get out of the cellar ... as long as you bring something with you.

Butter
Whole (in a bag)
Real cheese ( cheese whiz might be the most disgusting food ever created)
Coke........although a Pepsi hits the spot when I’m really hungover.

But that’s a dry heat...

At least that’s what they tell people as they are carting them away in ambulances.
