  1. Thought maybe this was going to be a D-Day reference. The scope of that operation never ceases to amaze me.

    1. One of my favorite aspects of the invasion was all the feigns involved. The inflatable army, loudspeakers blaring tank sounds through the woods. Even Patton just chillin' in England was enough to keep the Germans staring nervously at Calais (well, with a whole lot of fake radio traffic).

    1. I really wish there was more information regarding this one. If I was a reporter, I'd think it would be worthy to chase down the real story to supplement this one sided account. I'm not saying it's not the truth, just I'd want to hear the other side of the story as well.

      1. I saw something from the Gazette saying most of the staff and editors were against running the obit but were overruled.

  2. Hey meat,

    My brother says thanks for the email. They've incorporated a lot into their to-do list for the short time they're in ABQ.

  3. I have to admit that I had a great day at the ballpark yesterday. Hit C Ramp at about 2:30, scored a spot right by the stairs and walked to the plaza. Going in I got my Buxton/Dozier gold glove shirt and an MLB Network bag. Found my seat in Section 118, Row 8, right up from the visitors' on-deck circle with a great view of the field and into the Twins dugout. The weather was perfect, the seat in the sun for about 40 minutes then shaded by the lighting canopy. A couple of seats down was a dad, his boys and wife. All three boys played on different Little League teams, two of them traveling. It was fun talking to them, the dad kept using the plays on the field to teach the game -- see how the catcher ran down to back up first base? See how the first baseman went to cover second because the second baseman and shortstop were both lining up as cutoff men? It was pretty great to see. For the second game I had the whole end of the row to myself, but I did end up talking with a couple of Sox fans behind me who made the trip up for the game. I stayed until the last out of the day and took a leisurely strolled back to my car. When I left the parking ramp I made two quick left turns onto 94 and was on my way home. The whole day was just a can of corn.

    1. I'm a hypocrite. I don't like public money used for professional sports, but I love Target Field.

      1. You're not alone in that. At least it wasn't as embarrassingly bad of a deal as a certain other boondoggle, so there's that.

        1. When I first moved to the Twin Cities, I said that this would be the perfect city if we had outdoor baseball, an ocean, and mountains. We've added 1 out of 3.

        2. In some ways, I think it is easier to justify US Bank Stadium since the Vikings only use it 10 days each year and it hosts a number of community events. It doesn't make it a good deal for the state, but I think you could make an argument that it is a state facility.

      2. I am a realist. If we didn't use public money to build stadiums, our teams would go somewhere else. If that was the case, I would not know any of you at all and would probably be on some silly 80's music website with a bunch of dorks like me.
