Twitter/Tweeter/Twats/Twits: You say toe-may-toe, I say toe-mah-toe

Twitter Me This
I decided it is time to re-launch my baseball twitter account since I am sure 80% of my twitter peeps are sick of me fangirling baseball (oh, they’re totally fine with me fangirling David Cook and Booze). So, let me remind you to follow me at Baseballipgloss if you aren’t already! I love to tweet during baseball games, much to the chagrin of whoever is attending with me.

Spotlight Twitterers:
Orlando Hudson
Question: Who do you think is actually running Orlando Hudson’s twitter? It’s mostly RTs and third person references.

Denard Span
But I am loving Denard Span’s tweets!

Minnesota Twins
I don’t know who is running it but I loved the twitpics from the offices at Target Field and all the Twins Fest tweets!

TC the Bear
I also think our very own Kbrobaseball and him are destined to be best friends! :)

REMEMBER – Only you can prevent forest fires and only you can attend the 2nd annual MN Baseball Twitter/Blogger/Fan meet-up!
Last summer Sarah (Oh, Those Girls) and I had a small but tasteful gathering of Twins fans at my house to welcome a special guest (Amanda from NY) . There was beer, chips and my puppy in my backyard. This year Sarah got the ball rolling and we’ll be meeting up at CHAMPPS in Richfield on Saturday, March 13 to watch the televised Spring Training game and eat baked goods. I am going to make my Getting Drunk of My Bailey’s Cupcakes cupcakes and maybe another booze filled product. So…stop by! Say hi! Everyone and anyone is welcome (well, I don’t want to see Bernie Madoff or Denny Hecker crashing the party) and we swear we aren’t as cliquey as we seem. In fact, Sarah is probably the most entertaining person I know!

Baseball, Beer, and Baked Goods
March 13 at 11:45 a.m.
Champps in Richfield (790 W. 66th Street)

Check out her post here with details on RSVPing

Photo(s) of the Day
This is not baseball related BUT I am in the process of editing photos that I took from the MWK concert I went to in Tulsa last week. Thought I’d post a couple Tulsa/MWK related photos here, strictly for entertainment value!

I walked Route 66 in Tulsa many times in those few days. Sometimes I was even sober!

It’s harder to feel, stuck under wheels/Grinding in motion that keep you all right

Out of the Loop
Okay, so I have been MIA (hibernating at my local drinking establishment and cursing the winter that gives us snow and no baseball) SO that means I have missed out on new blogs of note that I should be following. This is your time to chime in and let me know if there are any new blogs (they don’t have to be Twins centered) that I should check out.

Blogger/Twitter/Talking/Chatter/Random Baseball Meetup!
Also…piggybacking off of Sarah at Oh, It’s Those Girls (yes, I am a lazy schmuck these days) here are the details for the Twins meetup she’s planning for March 13!

I will be there with my Bailey’s filled chocolate cupcakes and maybe my rum filled pineapple upside own cupcakes and maybe something new. I love baking with booze! AND I love baseball! Be there or be square!

About damn time
Anyone else breathing a sigh of relief that Spring Training has begun? So, to celebrate I am going to post a baseball picture a day (one of mine of course) to get ready for the 2010 season!

Pretty pictures and his TV Guide subscription goes to Miss. Chanadaler Bong

Could this winter GO any slower?
(That’s my Chandler Bing or Chanadaler Bong impression.)

I am so ready for baseball that I can almost taste it! Brats and nachos and popcorn and peanuts and beer…lots of beer.

So, whilst we wait for reports to come in (or a Joe Mauer contract to be signed) let’s walk down memory lane, shall we?

· Plastic blue seats
· Dingy roof
· Ugly grass
· Corndogs on the plaza
· Beer spilling out of my cup because of the slanted cupholders
· Tears over the spilled beer
· Texting Sarah (Oh Those Girls) about the weird dancers in the pre-game activity
· Taking Lucy to her first game on her first birthday

Now photographic evidence that I am remembering stuff!

Okay, now I am off to Tulsa, Oklahoma for purely non-baseball stuff…like seeing MWK in concert. So, catch ya on the flipside, yo!
