What's your advice for Kirilloff, who is frequently rendered incorrectly? :)
 

I split it into three words Kir-ill-off (Kir is a cocktail)

I do it like this. Which are the double consonants? I think off. so two f's. I think Killebrew (Killer) so two l's. So I always remember Kirilloff. Two l's and two f's. Done. That's what works for me. Engrained like a knot on a log for me now.

Oooooo, I like that. ill and off. And I learned a new cocktail. 1/4 ounce crème de cassis and 5 ounces​ white wine (dry). I don't think I would be fond of it, but I will try it tom-or-row.

 

The History of the Kir Cocktail
The kir became popular in French cafes in the middle of the 19th century. It was further popularized by Felix Kir after World War II. The then-mayor of Dijon in Burgundy, France, served the drink often to promote his region's fine products (wine and crème de cassis). The name kir has been associated with the drink ever since and has become generic enough that Webster's Dictionary lists it in lower case.

Because winning divisions (poor ones at that) is not the end goal. Its winning play off games, series, and getting to and winning a WS. Thats why. 

 

Does the #5 typically start playoff games? Heck, many times they are not even on the roster.

The way I remember, is that the tall letters (L and F) are doubles.

I never thought about it until I typed that out...

L and F are doubled up and defensively he plays LF

That'll work great until I have to get a Kiri11obb jersey.

AK47

I'm going to have to insist on AK-76.Since that IS his number and all.

 

Edit: Or AK-19.Google says his number is 76, but the Twins 40 man page says 19.Did he do a number change?

No, he just should switch to 47 and be done with it. All good.
