IMO it's the product on the field that is failing!!


Exactly. I mean, who wants to analyze an 18-3 game? Well, okay, maybe some do. I don't.

I was hoping that the serious thread would be filled with comments from people who don't want to deal with the silliness of this thread. So far, the serious thread seems relatively inactive and this thread has not been as funny as usual.

Quite frankly, neither thread is all that ... um ... well, I'm going to go finish putting together my apple crisp now that I've peeled, cored and sliced the apples.

I was always looking at Susan Dey when they played that song. There was something innocent yet evil about her that still haunts me.

Dick and Bert are being a little negative tonight.

If you don't know where you are going, you might wind up someplace else.

Well ... you tried. I think maybe, if you want to keep experimenting, put one of those who wants the more 'serious' thread in charge. Let them set it up every game like RB does here, let them guide the talk, let them take responsibility for it. <shrug> I think mostly it's all just a product of what's been said ... a bad team and a bad season.

lol ... because maybe my sideways or upside down pic will be the most interesting thing of either?

Thanks for that idea. I think that it is worth a try.

But ... monitor it ... and any silliness whatsoever, and they get admonished! See how they last through an awful game.

That would violate the 8th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

Really, really tough to get too wound up in this version of the Twins. I'm paying attention when Pinto and Presley hit and pulling hard for Dozier. The pitchers are "meh" at best (poor starters--tired relievers) and almost all hope is gone.

I got off the golf course and checked to see how the NL batting race is going, not how the Twins were doing because frankly I really doubted that the Twins had much chance against any Tampa pitcher..

Unless John shows up with Olivia, I don't see how the Twins can win tonight.

You can at least taunt them!

Poor Dick is really disgusted. I'll bet he just can't wait to get this season over. I'd hate to have that job now, and not be able to say what I really wanted to.

Well, here's the before. It won't be done before the end of the game, though. But I'll make sure to tell you how tasty it was tomorrow! ;)

That looks good to me, and maybe even healthy.
