Pack my bags, walking in rain/Hear them voices inside my head/Drinking that booze & taking down names

Calling all Twins bloggers & tweeters!
MetsGrrl will be in Minneapolis this upcoming weekend! Besides going on a baseball tour and eating a Jucy Lucy at Matt’s Bar she wants to gather and watch the Twins and Mets matchup on TV. So, come join us! This would be a perfect time to break out your old Santana Twins shirts and join us at Kieran’s Irish Pub (the new location in Block E, across from the Target Center). We’ll be meeting around noon on Sunday, June 27.

Metsgrrl Meet-up
Kieran’s Irish Pub
600 Hennepin Ave

Happy hour from 11:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m., 7 days a week. $4 pints, house wines, rail drinks

Let me know if you are interested in joining and then I can pass along a headcount to Kieran’s. Just a warning…this isn’t one of those fancy meet-ups. There will be no shenanigans or hoopla. Just us and baseball and beer.

Also, rumor has it that Garrett Jones Action Figure will be debuting at the bar on this momentous occasion.

Baseball, mall, hall, call, asparagus, Jason castro, shawl, tall…
My little five-year old niece, Lucy, is learning all about rhyming. She rhymes everything and well, the heading above is an example of her rhyming style. I don’t think she’s destined to be the next Eminem or anything but at least she’s trying.

So baseball…
I am still very much in love with Target Field. I’ve been to a handful (almost two handfuls – insert inappropriate comment here) of games and each one makes my love of the ballpark grow. Yeah, it’s sappy but that’s how I feel. Hey, I am a girl that was raised in the Metrodome. Raised seeing a dingy grey domed roof, bright green fake grass, cheap plastic blue seats and closed walkways. Anyways, I skipped out of work early last Thursday and headed to Target field to watch the Twins. The weather was perfect…a hot summer day. I was thankful that my seats were in the shade…a nice breeze, cold beer & tasty tacos.

There was yet another proposal on the jumbotron.

In honor of Vinnie (THANK YOU) scoring me a ticket to Stone Temple Pilots concert that is coming through town here in August…I give you a song from Scott Weiland’s solo album.

Blame it on the rain, blame it on the stars, whatever you do don’t put the blame on you

The clouds parted and the sun sparkled over downtown Minneapolis (I am sure some angels were singing and shit but I think they are sick of me requesting Free Bird). For some strange reason I had Milli Vanilli’s greatest hit, Blame It On The Rain, stuck in my head.

I was excited to go to the game with Jess (of the Tulsa Roadtrip for MWK Concert crew) and introduce her to Target Field. I also got to introduce her some Hibbinites (those who hail from Hibbing, MN)…Vinnie and his guys are 100% Hibbing and 200% hilarious.

The game was great, the company was awesome (we fangirled MWK, Ryan Star & David Cook), the food was good (taco Tuesday), and we won…pretty much a quadruple threat.

CandyLand in downtown Minneapolis offers a Game Day special. For $10 you can get a bag of Chicago Mix, a bag of plain popcorn, a bag of either sunflower seeds or peanuts, and a bag of candy. It is all approved to go into the ballpark so you would be set with sweet treats! I am doing this on my next game!

If you are looking for Father's Day Presents get yourself to Walmart (words I don't utter often). They have a great selection of Father's Day/Twins stuff. I really, really want this tshirt.
