GameChat – HOME OPENER!! A’s @ Twins, 3:10pm

It’s just about as perfect a spring day as you get in Minnesota.  No, really, as hard as it is to believe since we just got 10 inches of snow on Friday, it’s almost 60 and gorgeously sunny out there.

KL and I aren’t actually AT the game today although I have to admit we both wish we were. It’s a sure sign you’re getting old and stodgy when you choose to prioritize “bills” before you go for fun like the baseball opener.. My NEPHEW is at the game though so we are at least raising the kids right in our family. Instead, KL and I did a little shopping for baseball findings to finish up a pair of booties for the baby to match her Twins stuff for when we DO go to games.

Miss Margaret was all ready for the opener too!! KL and I met for lunch and showed up in our baseball accoutrements as well – we did discuss getting a group selfie of the three of us girls all ready for baseball but.. yeah, well, she and I aren’t really big fans of being on camera as much as we are being BEHIND a camera so you get the cute baby in gear as a substitute.

Quick DL update – Bartlett has been put on the 15 day DL and our super-utility back-up Catcher, Chris Hermann, is up here for awhile. Considering that both Arcia and Willingham aren’t swinging a bat at the moment, it’s nice to have Pinto be able to be in the lineup since Hermann can fill in if necessary behind home plate.

Let’s see what the boys can do in their home debut for 2014!

yep… the story for the Twins is still “the pitching sucks” so that could get a little old before it gets too warm.

BUT  if they aren’t going to win, at least the ballgame was a good way to celebrate one of the first days nice enough to want to be outdoors. It was a stunningly beautiful day here in Minnesota – one of the first times in awhile I have been able to say that.
