Required Reading

You. Yeah, you, with the mouse. Read this. Now.

When you've stopped screaming and banging your head against the nearest wall, check out One Pissed Off Veteran. It's a brand-shiny-new blog by a Vietnam veteran who's not exactly thrilled about Iraq, among other things. He calls himself Farnsworth, and he's already got some great stuff out there for your perusal. (For future reference, I've added a permanent link to OPOV on your right, under "Politics and Society".)



Good game last night. Joe Mays and Joe Nathan both shook the rust off and combined for an excellent nine innings versus the Kansas City Landed Gentry. The Twins won 3-1.

In that brief gap between visitor's batting practice and the clearing of the field for anthems and "first pitches", I was heartened to see all our infielders (and I do mean all) get run out there for a quick round of pepper. Practice makes perfect, boys. And whaddaya know--no errors last night!

Hey!!

I found your link on BG and just wanted to say hey and it was AWESOME meeting you at the AP. I love your "Free Jason Bartlett" meter. Yeah, I agree...he needs to come back. I miss him dearly. You said he was your boyfriend before being sent down, right? Losing a boyfriend to managerial decisions is so harsh:)

Not only were there no> errors, but there were a lot of spectacular plays. In fact, 4 or 5 Web Gem nominees (including the no. 1; which was Joe Mays in the 8th)
