I’m hearing a LOT of good things about the renovations at Hammond Stadium.. boy do I wish I could have been down there this year but I’ll just have to take the word of our “on the scene reporters” …
Ok, so it’s not my usual comic break today.. I’m a little focused! Believe it or not, while the rest of the world is watching hockey and football and going nuts (ok, yes, I’m probably doing that too), I’m looking forward to the first live MN Swarm game!!!!!
If you haven’t ever seen box lacrosse in person, you really need to find an opportunity to do so. The hubby and I are season ticket holders (a much cheaper option than the bigger pro-sports teams) and every single person we bring to a game ends up coming again on their own – and/or becoming ticket holders as well! While baseball is all the strategy, intrigue, planning and set up of well-played chess, box lacrosse is playing slap jack with your nephews while high on sodas and cookies. It’s SO much fun and so high energy … it’s genuine all ages family fun.
If you are free today and in the area, you should definitely check out the game today – starts at 2pm in Xcel Center. Get there a bit early if you want to really check out all the fun you can find! Heck, keep your eyes out for me because our seats are right on the glass and the size I am these days with Baby Smith on the way, I’m kind of hard to miss! If you can’t get to the game, you should check it out online as well – all the info you need can be found on the MN Swarm website.
2013 is now officially behind us. All the disappointments of the last baseball season, the frustrations with management and the starting roster we’re used to seeing for that matter are all officially in the past of “last year”… that being said, this is the day when we as a culture seemingly are addicted to saying what one thing we want to do better.
So I’m curious. What baseball related resolution have you made? What one resolution do you think the Twins should make?
And of course, we all realize that resolutions rarely make it 3 months into the new year so congrats to any and all resolutions that actually make into the start of baseball season.
MY resolution is: See a minor league game in person. (that gives me plenty of time to work on it).
If you’re reading this on Christmas morning, you seriously need to find something better to do on Christmas morning!
Regardless, we here at Knuckleballs want to wish you a very Merry Christmas!
Maybe it’s because I just really like this particular cartoon that we’ve run for the past two Christmas mornings or maybe it’s because I’m just too lazy to find a new one… or maybe it’s that I’m a new grandpa and that gives me a renewed affinity for the cartoon… but whatever the reason, I’m running it again this year.
On behalf of the whole Knuckleballs crew… CapitalBabs, Eric, KL and myself… thank you all for coming by to share our Twins fandom with us throughout the year and have a joyful and safe Holiday season!
