The Return of Venn Diagrams

It's really cold. Let's try to forget that fact.

Bob Stanton-USA TODAY Sports

Back on Sunday I was attempting to gear up for some more NFL playoff action when this entered my Twitter feed.

This led me down a Twinkie Town rabbit hole that included finding my favorite TT article of all time, Jon Marthaler's Minnesota welcome to current Twins writer Rhett Bollinger. That then caused me to reminisce about the late* Marthaler and I eventually rediscovered these two articles, a pair of pieces explaining the Twins with Venn diagrams.

* Note: Jon is not actually dead.

Even though I try to focus more on analytical pieces here at TT, I'm suffering from a bit of cabin fever and chose to reconnect with my roots when I first started blogging in 2009 where I tried to blend analysis with satire. There were some successes, there were some failures, but overall I felt I did a solid job. Hell, I caught Jesse's eye so I couldn't have been that bad.

Anyway, I would like to treat punish you with some Venn diagrams I dreamed up over the past couple days. Save your gift receipts as satisfaction is totally not guaranteed.
