I hear ya.. No payments is wonderful.

I'm still paying my wife off... I can't wait until I can just drive her around with no payments.

Kind of surprised they didn't let Pelfrey throw more. Didn't seem to throw too many pitches.

Yeah ... but maybe despite the count, he did what he wanted to do? I never know about these things.

Well, my 4-year-old neighbor has decided its warm enough for a convertible .... has his new bike out (with tiny little training wheels). :)

He's a speedster, though.

Hmm ... maybe one of the games I get to I'll sit out there on the berm in LF and have a huge sign that says 'A shout out to Twins Daily' (or get Halsey to do that)

oh man ... I do not want to be reminded of how fun it was to watch Revere run in the outfield.

Ben Revere... I would have made the trade and I'd still make the trade today... Even after Vance Worley looked horrible last year.

But... Revere can play for my team any day.

I'm not going down to ST until the 22nd. This is going to be a LONG two weeks.

Deduno looking a little nasty that inning, too. Nice work by the pitchers today. Would be kind of nice to see hitters come out of hibernation some time soon.

At least Daylight Savings time cut an hour out... Just like that.

The keys to a convertible and driving the Florida keys. Synergy at its finest!!!

Wonder if I should bring my 'Dunk City' tshirt with me. I see their game is delayed. How does a basketball game get delayed?

I am really looking forward to seeing the finished stadium. Was there at Christmas time, couldn't get anywhere as it was still a construction zone.

Yeah, I'm anxious to see the improvements to Hammond, too. Thinking I may try sitting in those outfield areas. I missed going to ST last year for the first time in several years. I like to go toward the end, though, when the minor league rosters are a bit closer to being set.

I like all times for different reasons. This ST will be the 14th in a row ... 18th, 19th over all. Yeah ... I want to try and sit everywhere and try out all the 'new' spaces.

So far my flight is on time. The incoming flight left early. Just have to get through the security at Midway which is worse than O'Hare ...
