Everybody Loves Jim Thome!!!

Congratulations to Big Jim for hitting his 599th and 600th home run on Monday night. What a great accomplishment for a great player and a great man. There's not really much more that I can say that so many other writers won't say better. As a baseball fan first and a Twins fan second, I am proud and honored to watch him play.

It amuses me that #600 sailed over Delmon Young's head.

Also, I have a ton of respect for the Tigers fans. They gave Thome a lovely standing ovation right away despite the fact that it cost them the win. Some moments transcend the scope of a single game, and it made me happy to see the Detroit fans appreciate that.
