Musings of a Twins Geezer:
This is my first ramble of words. I'll see how this goes...
I love the Twins - had to get that off my chest first!
If I continue to write more thoughts in this format will depend on the team compelling me to plow through the season with them. I'm a geezer that is still sharp enough to remember my first game at Metropolitan Stadium, watching the Twins beat the KC Athletics sitting in the left field bleachers after riding the bus up with a bunch of other kids from the southern part of the state. I remember the last game at the Met, in the mist and cold and at games end jumping onto the field to run around the base path and ending up sitting on the bench in the dugout. It was a cold early fall game, but I felt exhilaration and sadness on that bench. She was a rusting beauty, that park.
Then I moved to L.A. and saw many games at Chavez Ravine, it was fun, they were pretty good, Lasorda was entertaining, there were plenty of people you see in movies and on t.v., and plenty that you didn't see there. I grew to love being there. But it was not the Twins. I still followed the Twins.
I remember the Twins winning the first W.S. in '87. I surged with happiness in warm L.A.
I remember the Twins winning the next and last W.S. in '91. I remember rushing from the jet and running through Sky Harbor in Phoenix in a jacket and tie on a business trip, to find an elevated screen with a swarm of fans watching the game. Cheers, wild cheers as they won! They really won it again! Baseball joy.
Next stop was Colorado for many years. I would sometimes catch the few times the Twins showed up at Coors. Fun, fun, fun.
Now, back in MN and just retired. I have plenty of things to do and learn to keep me busy. However, I still find myself incredibly drawn to the Twins! Always will.
If I return to this blog page, you may find I have opinions that are not always going to be agreed with. That suits me just fine. Remember, it will be just the musings of a Twins geezer, it is meant for dialogue, it is out of the joy and love that I found as a little young guy and realized that I still have today.
