Seattle Mariners 10 – Minnesota Twins 1
Target Field – Minneapolis, MN
September 23, 2016
If the title confuses you, then maybe we cannot be friends. I kid… or do I? Seriously, if you haven’t watched Arrested Development, then I don’t know that we can be that close of friends.
Now that you have watched at least seasons 1-3 of the show (3 or more times, at least), you may continue reading. Also, feel free to download your “Tony Voda Friendship Certificate” – I will sign it when we next meet in person.
I wish I could type more or make up some elaborate and hilarious story, but the game was just an all-too-typical murder of the Twins. I was even rooting for something historic to happen at the games in 2016; I’ve never seen a no-hitter or perfect game, why couldn’t the Twins suck that bad? Instead, I just got to see a team go 1-10 at home and bring them perfect luck when seeing them on the road (3-0).
The good news? The season was nearing its completion, I got my 600th ball this game, and I was finally enjoying baseball again. Plus, since Plouffe was out, I didn’t feel so bad hoping to see some (negative/anti-Twin history).
*I promise I’m not anti-Twins or some incredibly bitter fan. I will root for a team and still wish for them to do well, but I’m also a baseball enthusiast. I want to see history – I want to say “I’ve witnessed one of those” or be able to display my game ticket because of some once-in-a-lifetime occurrence. I’d prefer the Twins even do them, but with the 2016 squad, I would take it from either side, really. *
Let there be PODCAST!
Wake up! Time to switch from auditory stimulus to visual stimulus.
