How could last night's game get any better? Watching Cleveland have a meltdown (errors on the field and just all over bad fielding), Kevin Slowey rocking their socks off and pitching 8 innings with only 1 earned run (I felt he should have came back out for the 9th and got the complete game, but sadly Gardy didn't think on the same note as I did!), I didn't have to see Jon Rauch pitch (which I've seen him every other game I've been at), did I mention Kevin Slowey was pitching?
Well my friends and I were all rocking Slowey shirts (jersey for me). We were representing the Kevin Slowey Fan Club (sorry other Slowey fans, I am the President and CEO of that club.) which we have unofficially taken upon ourselves to start. Why not, right? We probably were some of the loudest people at the game (sure we were sitting up where our noses could have bled and the air was much lighter). We probably even were some of THOSE fans that other people hate because they cheer so much. But why not cheer at a baseball game? That's why we are there!! Plus now that we are outdoors, you have to cheer louder to be heard.
Some have talked about whether or not the Twins have faced a challenging team yet this season (and that maybe they are doing so well because they are facing the less difficult teams). I don't really think that this is the case. I think any team (minus Baltimore perhaps) could be a competitor. It is only April still. Things can change, and they can change quickly. I'm ready for a season of more firsts for the Twins!
So far I feel like I have been great luck (for the games I have been at). I have an undefeated record of 4-0, so I feel like I'm on a good roll. I guess the Yankees game in May will determine my true "luck". I'm hoping and praying my luck continues with the team...and if so, I really think that the Twins should fuel my luck and have me at ALL the Twins home games (heck, even road games) so that they can continue to be on FIRE! Am I really this cocky and think that I am the only good luck charm? Maybe...I guess I won't divulge my true nature. You can take it however you want.
Now enjoy some more pictures from the game (from the nose bleed seats). Tonight, watch some Twins baseball and see Liriano take the mound.
