Nostradamus: Twins Fan

Nostradamus was a lunatic in the 16th century who wrote quatrain after quatrain, seemingly none of them making sense.  Now, nearly 500 years later, analysis of these quatrains has revealed a number of eerie similarities between those writings and the world's most influential moments.  What follows is one of these future-predicting quatrains...

...near falling water and geyers not of nature
A young lieutenant leads his enemy to the jaws of death
Yet his blue flag will come to ashes as an elder
Wields a sword of strength in battle for another...


Like I said last time, the quatrains make more sense when there's a point of reference.

Anyway, did you see the last two innings of last night's game?  DID YOU?!?  Because when I woke up this morning and watched it, I might have peed my pants just a little.  Hands down the best comeback of the season so far, capped by a Justin Morneau shot in the top of the 10th.  But it was Craig Monroe's shot in the ninth which rounded out a five-run inning, with (correct me if I'm mistaken) all five runs being scored with two outs in the inning.

Monroe's jack came as he pinch-hit for Alexi Casilla, and was his fifth shot of the year.  Justin's was his ninth, and salvaged a hitless night from the 3-4-5 hitters who were 1-for-15 after his extra-inning bomb.

Awesome.  Just...awesome.
