I feel it ... although not lifelong in Chicago, been here long enough that the natives accept me as native. You can take the girl out of Minnesota, but you can't take the Minnesota out of the girl ... forever a Twins fan, much to some of my friends' eye-rolling consternation.


Did I ever tell the story of when Kenny Williams used to live in my building, and had a parking spot next to mine? When I discovered that, that's when I put the Twins sticker on my car. Not sure if he ever noticed it.

It doesn't matter if he noticed.  It's the act of defiance that counts.


I was at home on 9/11, with the radio turned on.   They were talking about the hitchhiked airplanes, when live on the radio, they reported the first airplane to hit the Twin Towers.   At that point, I was clear about what was happening, and I immediately hung my American flag outside.   I knew the odds of a terrorist seeing it, or even caring about what was happening in Minneapolis, was incredibly slim, but it didn't matter.   It was the only way I knew to publically give them a middle finger.   I don't mean to equate terrorism and baseball competition in any way.   But in matters large and small, sometimes you just have to plant your flag and make your position public.
