I turned 26 on Thursday, and I swear I can feel the gray hairs sticking out the back of my head.  Yikes.

Last year I did this over at Twins Territory; "honoring" my birthday by finding things relating to the Twins that had to do with the number 25.  I listed things like "the age of Rivas and Bartlett" and "the height of Nick Punto in inches".  It's the same story this year, only with the number 26.

26-Number of runs scored by Lew Ford.

26-Number of walks taken by Michael Cuddyer.
