Tuesday: Twins 5 - Sawx 6
Wednesday: Twins 5 - Sawx 18
Boston takes 3 game series (ouch)
Ok, everyone's thinking it, so I'm just going to come out and shout it:
I f'ing HATE Manny Ramirez!!!!!!
He's ugly, he's cocky, he needs a haircut, he probably smells bad, ... did I mention he's ugly? Oh, and he abuses Twins pitching. Ugh.
Speaking of hate, I think I get to hate the umpiring staff today. I didn't see the game, but I did listen to the radio. And according to John-n-Dazzle, it sounded like the umpires blew at least three calls in favor of the Sox -- the so-called triple play that wasn't, the fan interference, and the should've-been infield fly rule. And it didn't sound like they were questionable calls; they were flat out wrong. No wonder Gardy was fuming.
Whew, all this hating is way too negative. What the Twins need is some relaxation and levity in order to recover so they can go after the Tigers. I've written up some instructions:
The cool thing about this procedure is that it also works on distraught Twins fans, too. Except for the calling Room Service part. But maybe you can see if your spouse/sweetie/child is willing to accomodate you.Players' Instructions for Recovery:
- Call room service and order the following items:
■ Celestial Seasonings SleepytimeTM tea
■ Chicken Noodle Soup
■ Large Hot Fudge Sundae (Optional: with sprinkles)
- Change into your most cozy jammies or sweats.
- Take two Advil.
- Order a pay-per-view comedy movie such as Spaceballs or Airplane
Watch re-runs of a comedy television show such as Family Guy.
- Enjoy your meal.
- Tuck yourself into bed plenty early, and wake up fully rested and in a good mood ready to conquer another day.Important: Do not come in contact with SportsCenter or Baseball Tonight or read the copy of USA Today that will be outside your door in the morning.Troubleshooting: If the above procedure does not work, ask the trainer to use the Super-secret Men In Black Memory Erasing Pen.
Oh, and if anyone knows how I can get myself one of those Super-secret Men In Black Memory Erasing Pens, please let me know.
