But as young Billy Haywood reminds us “Just have Fun”
That’s right folks, I have gone to the DVD rack and pulled Little Big League off the shelf for a little Minnesota Magic via Hollywood. Oh sure the Twins miss the playoffs in the end because of Jr Griffey (oh gawd he plays for the Bitch Sox now) but as they point out it was one hell of a year.
Most people called this year a rebuilding year and some people here thought the Twins would finish around .500 but look at the year we are getting to enjoy. Heck the so called experts had the Twins finishing no better than 3rd place. No matter what, this has been yet another year where it has been great to be a Twins fan. Trust me I live surrounded by Giants fans and they always wonder how the Twins do it. The Twins are 1 game out 1st place and have a real chance to get into the playoffs (again). No matter what this year will be fun.
Of course when I got to the end of the film and saw Junior take that home run away and send the movie Twins home for the season I got nervous. I mean life couldn’t possibly imitate art? After all that was young Junior who was the face of MLB not the older Junior who has no business roaming center for Chicago. Nah, it’s just a movie but just in case I’ll be putting that DVD back on the shelf and not making eye contact w/ it anytime soon. I mean sure have fun (thanks Billy) but how much more fun would it be to see the Twins in the playoffs one more time?
I think next time I’ll just watch Night Nurses from Jersey…
