I have found the game threads to be useful when arriving home during the middle of a game. If I scroll a couple of pages with no baseball references, it means I probably don't want to turn the on the game. If there are more than three pages with no references to the game, I know I should not look up the box score, but often do out of morbid curiosity.
I will say someone took things a bit too far last night however. Because of a couple of inappropriate posts I have had the 70's pop song Indiana Wants Me in my head the last 36 hours. References to 70's death pop should lead to banishment - or before you know it things like Seasons in the Sun, Wildfire, Timothy, Billy Don't be a Hero will raise their ugly heads.
I think once the Twins are more relevant and playing better, the game threads will end up being more Twinscentric again, so when we are tied for first with the Royals at the All-star break next year, this won't be an issue.
