Top 3 reasons I love Kevin Slowey:
1. He is Kevin Slowey
2. He chose the Navy jerseys last night when I was having a shitty night.
3. He allowed me to see the beautiful Joe Nathan in the navy. I love it.
Okay, quickly here...until after tonight's Twins game which I'm going to again, and sitting by the bullpen....the 3 Stars of last night's game.

3 Stars:
1. Joe Mauer
(he went 2 for 3, with a home run for his first at bat of the season, and the first pitch he swung at, had a great hit, walked and scored 3 of the runs the Twins put together.)
2. Kevin Slowey (sorry, he automatically gets one for being the highest winning Twins pitcher.
3. Joe Nathan (he didn't screw up and he's hot in those jerseys)

Yay Slowey!

Wow, are you as happy as I am to have Mauer back? He looks to be in great shape for the season!

it was very nice to have joe back in the line up...it's like the other boys just needed a boost of confidence and joe mauer seemed to be that boost.

Anonymous - Thanks for the feedback! it's always nice to know someone's reading! :)

I get my seats by going to the pro shop (cause you can tell them the sections you want to sit in) and then i usually have like 3 sections I'm willing to sit in. hehe...

SWEET! I'll have to do that next time I plan on going to a game. How far out do you buy them?? Like a couple weeks or can you get them sooner than that? Good Luck To SLOWEY TONIGHT!!!!

I think it usually just depends on who they are playing...I've gotten row 4 the morning of a game. Monday-Thursday games are always less crowded!
I'm hoping he'll get a great win tonight while I'm there watching!

When you go in the game can you go back out into the plaza? or do you have to stay in the dome?

You can go back out...they usually will just mark your ticket. Just tell them you forgot something in your car and are going to run back out. I've done it before.
