Been awhile since I've posted. School has started again and I've been getting ready for a whole slew of exciting things in my life this year. Of course, the Twins remain a high priority as always and through all the frustration over last year's playoff I'm looking forward to this season in many ways.
Anyway, first: I've officially decided I want to customize my gray pinstriped away jersey (the one they just retired) since it has no name or number on it. I'm going to go with Gladden and 32, but I'm not sure how or where to send it in to be customized, if that's even possible. But if anyone knows how I might be able to do so, I'd appreciate it! I'd love to sport the legend of the greatest Twins outfielder to ever have a blond mullet.
Second, speaking of Danny: The 1991 team reunion is currently set for the weekend of August 5-7, and since I've started a plan of vacationing to Minnesota and Ireland someday, I've decided I want to make said weekend the Minnesota part of the trip on its own! I'll have to have a job soon and save up as much as possible, but if all works out as I've planned I should be there for the reunion and game(s). I wouldn't miss it for the world...the '91 squad is my favorite single-year sports team ever and among my top heroes (among other Twins teams and players, of course), going back to my earliest days as a fan. If it all comes together, I suggest a meet-up at whatever is the preferred bar/restaurant around. I'm a lifelong Californian so you'd have to help there....
Hopefully see some of you in August,
