We here at Twinkie Town want to wish you all a very happy Thanksgiving!

In the spirit of blog content Thanksgiving, we want to remind all the precious Twins fans out there what they have to be thankful for this year:

  • Willians Astudillo.
  • Your health (hopefully?)
  • Ummm... TC Bear.
  • Rally beers that always work — in one way or another, at least.
  • Not losing to the Yankees in the playoffs this year.
  • Joe Mauer, Maddie Mauer, and the recent birth of Charles Mauer.
  • Winning that World Series back in 1991. That sure was something, wasn’t it?
  • Grocery stores that are still open on Thanksgiving because you totally forgot something and it was about to ruin Thanksgiving because you are overly OCD.
  • The Cleveland baseball team slowly phasing out their racist mascot.
  • The nice-ass people at the Tony O’s Cuban Sandwich stand at Target Field who give me two bags of chips with my sandwich instead of one when I tell them I am sharing the sandwich with my boyfriend.
  • Also, when the vending machine at your soul-sucking job gives you two bags of Doritos for the price of one.
  • The political TV ads are over.
  • Whoever bought the old Carrier water heater from the Metrodome for $55.
  • RandBall’s Stu.

See! There’s tons to be thankful for. Stop being a party pooper.
