Here are some items from the last few days that made me smile, think, pout, or rant.
Twins and Hormel part ways on hotdog sales
Ok, I assumed that there would be no more Dome Dogs, because, well, that would be silly at Target Field. But I just figured they'd rename it. However, that's not to be. Not only will there be no more Dome Dogs, there will be no more Hormel Row of Fame. Now that's very sad news as being in the Hormel Row of Fame was a bucket-list item of mine. But, alas, I shall never be a wiener winner. ::sniff::
Goodbye old friend.
I sincerely hope they select a local company to be their new hot dog provider.
Mauer and Thome Stuck at Complex
Read this. Just do it. It's good stuff. Bryz, you're a genius.
Vancouver 2010 Olympics.
Karleeee discusses which Olympic sports some Twins players should try. It's a fun idea.
The Show with Seth Stohs at SethSpeaks.net
In addition to his weekly podcast (which I've talked about before), he now has a weekly web-radio program. It sounds very spiffy with background music and everything. More info is on his website.
One of my favorite bloggers, Sooze from Babes Love Baseball, has hooked on with the StarTribune blog community. I admire her work, and it'll be great to read a female's perspective.
Speaking of the StarTrib blog community, Parker Hageman (Over the Baggy), Seth Stohs (SethSpeaks.net), Nick Nelson (Nick's Twins Blog), and John Bonnes (Twins Geek), who are collectively known as TwinsCentric, also hooked on. This is a return for John Bonnes, who back in 2004 was a fan-blogger for StarTrib. It was through him that I found out about blogs (I had to Google the word "blog" just to find out what he was doing) and became introduced to so many awesome blogs including the now-retired Bat-Girl. And the rest, they say, is history.
You Can Keep Your Stinkin' Filet-O-Fish
Ok, seriously, the person who came up with this horrible, horrible jingle needs to be stopped. I'm not a violent person in the least, but this makes me want to hunt him or her down and do some serious clawing. Too bad too; I don't mind McDonald's Filet-O-Fish. But I definitely need to find another establishment for my fast food fish needs.
