Given the start of the political “silly season” (already, right?), this seemed appropriate..
So getting Brian Dozier into the All-Star game became a bit of a thing .. just in case you missed it. There were some EXTREMELY creative outreaches on social media – especially the last day on Twitter. This was my favorite:
If you really want some more laughter in your day, check out the #VoteDozier hashtag on twitter – you’ll giggle for hours.
Something for you to think about as you enjoy the long weekend (or even if it’s a normal work weekend for you).
I had one active duty serviceman tell me once that you can thank him on any other day of the year and he’ll buy YOU a cup of coffee.. but on this one day, don’t thank him for somehow being lucky enough to be the one who came home instead of someone else.
That has really stayed with me.
Ok, I KNOW I am not the only geek in these environs.. you know how I know? Because the Twins are running a pretty fantastic promo for those people who are able to join them in their battle against the dark.. er.. A’s.
Tonight they are handing out a “Hughes the Force” (‘use the force’, if you needed assistance) bobble head highlighting tonight’s starting pitcher, Phil Hughes, of course. Instead of their ‘first 10K people’ usual procedure, they set it up with special seating and a special ticket you had to purchase to be a recipient, and yeah, those tickets are all sold out so it must be a popular idea!
They are also inviting fans to come in their favorite Star Wars paraphernalia. BUT if your meme of choice is “Han shot first” please be aware they will not allow blasters in the park. Safety first. *snort*
Honestly, I think it all sounds like a BLAST. 😉 And for that matter, the bobblehead is actually pretty cool too. Game time is 7:10 pm!
Happy Home Opener, everybody!!
Yeah, it would probably be more exciting if we’d had a bit better start but let’s hope that Trevor May can show us a little something to get excited about AND the weather is absolutely perfect for a little Minnesota Twins Spring baseball.
…. now if only I wasn’t at work…
Might as well throw up a GameChat just in case – as you may have noticed, we’re just not going to do every game this season – but if anyone is paying extra special attention today, here you go!
