Great job last night by Justin and JJ Hardy going deep again in the game. It's good to see Hardy off to a good start this season given the season he had last year. A friend of mine from WI (who is a Brewers fan) wished me luck when JJ got traded over to the Twins. He still just thinks it's only a matter of time before he starts to suck again. I think it's the Twins uniform that is helping him flourish! I think it will continue to work it's magic.
Yesterday while I sat at my desk working hard, two of my coworkers (my temporary boss and the event coordinator) went off to Target Field. They got a private tour of the stadium and got an in depth look into all the different places where you can host events (573 Club, Metropolitan Club, etc). Neither one of them knows much (maybe who Joe Mauer is) about baseball, but when you are old enough to have seen Harmon Killebrew play baseball, you should at least know WHO he is and what "573" stands for. She also had no idea what the gate numbers stood for, or who those players were. (taking hand and hitting palm to forehead). Here's a good lesson for them, if you would have taken me with you, I could have told you so you wouldn't look like a fool!
They also got to see the loading dock area, which is right by where the players park. It's a "VIP" parking area, that if you have an event at Target Field (where you rent the facilities), you get to park there too (along with your guests) but have to pay $7 per car to park there.
Tonight: Kevin Slowey gets his shot at the Angels and the Twins get a shot at winning their opening series against the Angels.
Reminder: Home Opener is only 4 days away! I can't hardly wait! If you too will be at the Opener, let me know and I'd love to meet readers (along with fellow bloggers)! I'll probably be one of few people with my Kevin Slowey jersey on!
