Ghost town in here. You'd almost think there was some major event going on this evening. ;)

Yeah, I wanted something that reflected my changed life. Idaho because that's where I live. Pilgrim because I am on a journey, seeking to proclaim the Minnesota Twins out here in the "wilderness" and seeking the promised land (World Series glory for our Twins).

I get to stay and watch the first hour of the draft. Then I got to go coach some Babe Ruth Baseball.

I'm gonna miss the Game Thread tonight... So I think we should probably consider shutting the game thread down until Tomorrow.

I like it... I'm gonna have to give it some thought and decide if I'm gonna address you as "Idaho" or "Pilgrim".

Probably Idaho cuz I like Potatoes.

I would love to coach Babe Ruth baseball. That was my favorite time as a player back in Bemidji (the high school coaches sucked FOR YEARS with immense talent in front of them).

In my opinion... Bemidji has been very impressive. They got some some tough demanding coaches and the fundamentals and attitude are being stressed. At least the teams that I have faced.

I didn't know you could change the screen name. I may give up swapping avatars, and go with name swaps instead. If RB is absent tonight, maybe I will stand in for him. ;)

I got to dig in and face the lefty Bryan Hickerson. Doubled off the fence and doubled down the line.

At least I think I did... It was a long time ago.

You have my Proxy... That would be fun... If the screen name change is cumbersome...

You could try -- A bunch of "If RB was here he'd say" Posts.

I could come and back and read them and see how close you came.

TD must have crashed... Right when the Twins were drafting.

Timing is everything.

He's already committed to a double-header in New Britain and Rochester, and they don't want to tax his arm.

Followed by "stiffness," "rest and rehab," "exploratory surgery" 3 months later, and "TJS" the following fall.

You should put something in your signature as a reminder to those of us without Chief-like memories. Maybe a Prince-esque tribute?
