We start Joe Mauer Number Retirement Weekend with Purple Prince Twins Jersey Night at Target Field. Man, this is a good weekend for Minnesota stuff, isn't it? Prince and Mauer? Nice. Also, our town just got a Townball team, and they wear purple jerseys, and their first ever home game is tonight too. So this is one of those fate things, right? Gonna be a great weekend for Minnesota baseball.
Let's hope the team can get going on an actual winning streak here tonight. They're pitching Gibson, who didn't do so hot against KC when he faced them in April (4.2 innings, 5 earned runs in a game the Twins ultimately won 7-6). But that was April, and no one knew the Twins were the best team in baseball back then, so I expect the Royals will just lay down this time for Kyle.
Meanwhile, the Twins are going to be purple raining bombas all over the place, and hopefully everyone can just sit back, relax, and enjoy a beautiful Minnesota summer weekend. This is the good life.
I won't go much further than that, as many others either will or already have for me. Anyway, grab a beverage, raise your glass, and let's all sing along with this old song that we only know a few of the words to, including Prince.

I said it before, and I'll say it again: good luck, you guys.
I'll see you on the other side.

Here's an AMAZING cut of this track that is still available for some reason. Seriously funky stuff here with an spectacular performance from everyone involved. I would die (figuratively) to have been able to see this tour.
(Liiiitle bit NSFW due to, err... "suggestive" dancing and some pretty skimpy costumes)
