Well, it's been affecting your lives long enough. Might as well discuss it. Best of luck to whomever sucks less!
I have a feeling that the NFL is going to get creamed in the ratings tomorrow night.
The NFL started its THREE DAY draft yesterday. 3 days to go through 8 rounds. The over coverage of every slightest bit of smoke GMs send out (99% of it is false info) gets blasted on ESPN. One tries to tune out the sports nets, but it gets filtered trough social media. Its all very annoying. Am I'm saying this as a person who still likes to watch football (although my fandom is waning the older I get). I do dislike everything else that surrounds the game.
Why am I bringing this up? I am very happy that baseball's draft hasnt become this huge spectacle of banality. I get heavy coverage of the first round, and to an extent the second (its where the bigger contracts are offered) but after that, its just a bunch of names and the hope that a few of them sign to fill out minor league rosters and hope you hit a gem.
This is all a half formed idea, but it comes down to this : I really dislike draft coverage of all sports.
On to the game. If you take out the 0-9 start to the season, the Twins are 7-6. Thats not bad! Most games have been watchable (although heart pounding and clenched teeth when the Twins have a lead late and the bullpen starts to come in). Maybe the Twins can claw their way to .500 by the 4th of July.
I am also very happy Joe Mauer is back to Joe Mauer Super Baseball Player . Coming into the game he is leading the American League in OnBasePercentage (.459) and is just off the leaderboard in OPS (.907).
Just in case...
(You can even talk about the commercials)
Here's a blast from the past (which is probably where it should have been left).
I'm pretty sure you guys will be able to say it all for me.
sunday! football! `murrica!
stay tuned, kiddos, cause SPOOKYMILK week is comin' atcha!
