Ah, Those Girls (well, one of them) is currently in Flo-rida to celebrate the kick-off of the Minnesota Twins 2009 Baseball season. I am anxiously following her Twitter to keep updated on all the happenings (and gossip.) No pressure girl!
Well, single game tickets go on sale at noon on Saturday, March 7. Alas, I will not be able to man the phone and computer to score tickets for my usual Home Opener Posse. I will be heading to Duluth, MN in my Jeep with a 12-year old going to see David freaking Archuleta (runner-up to last year’s American Idol.) Yeah…go ahead, bring on the mocking!
Bad News Bears…er, Twins
Bonsor needs surgery
Don’t forget, I Twitter!

If I find that I do a lot of baseball Twittering at games I will create a new baseball-centric one. We’ll see how the first few weeks go. I am sure my “normal” Twitter people won’t want to read:
Beer me, Wally the Beer Man!
TWINGO was his name-o
Everyone loves Joe Mauer, he’s the hometown hero
Non-baseball but no less important
*I saw a handful of people walking around with ash crosses on their foreheads. My natural instinct is to tap their arms and tell them they have a little schmutz on their face. My other instinct is to hiss and cover my eyes. I am trying to avoid both of those reactions.
*Zeppelin The Dog is going to puppy training classes at this frou-frou pet store in a bourgeois neighborhood. I need to make sure Zeppelin The Dog gets his AC/DC collar before the first class so we can rock it hardcore style! No fancy frills for us! We are representin’ SOUTHSIIIIIIDE. (Throws up my gang sign.)
*Spring Training (baseball for those who don’t know) starts tonight for the Minnesota Twins. First pitch at 6:05 p.m. against Boston. Baseball fever is HERE!
*I booked the hotel room in Duluth, MN (for when I take Olivia to see David Archuleta) and it is right next to the tattoo place that K-spra got hers at (during our drunken revelry.) Hmm…I wonder if it would be too “After School Special” if I brought Olivia there to learn about the perils of tattoos whilst I get one.

Music of the Day – Leonard Cohen Edition
I know that everyone loves Jeff Buckley’s rendition of “Hallelujah” but my favorite is the original by Leonard Cohen. His raspy (whiskey and cigarette) voice really strikes a chord on the song. Damien Rice also does a good version.
Thanks to Hassertime I have a working link if you want to check out Leonard Cohen. I mean, you obviously do.
