Detroit Tigers 8 – Minnesota Twins 1
Target Field – Minneapolis, MN
September 20, 2016
Hot Take: I’m the only one in history to take a selfie with the Ryder Cup dressed up as a bottle of Sriracha. Prove to me otherwise.
The Ryder Cup was held in a suburb of Minneapolis this year, so naturally we got to celebrate the squad before they went to battle those nasty Europeans. Just as certain as the Ryder Cup was to be played in MN this year, we knew that this was the only trophy we’d see in any professional sport in our state for 2016.
The great thing about the Ryder Cup being here (outside of my photo opportunity) was that Minnesota’s own TOM LEHMAN was in town. And you’re damn right I had him sign a ball I snagged in BP. How often do you get the opportunity to have a guy who won a Major in the PGA autograph something for you? (No, seriously, what are the odds? Someone please provide me the math.)
Carry on, young grasshopper.
