Twins Commercials

The team here at AH! had one goal when this blog was established: find the lyrics to every memorable Minnesota Twins commercial and record them here on the intraweb for future generations to enjoy.


here is a list of the songs we'd like:

Hormel Hot Dog Row of Fame complete lyrics
Doug M-I-E-N-T-K-I-E-W-I-C-Z radio commercial song ("say it, dont spray it")
Torii Hunter "Smooth" radio spot. ("baby, I know, that you wanna go over that wall...")
"My Baby Waves The Homer Hanky" complete lyrics

And we should probably get the current ones down too, such as the "Mauersota" and the "Justin Morneau Most Vancouverish Player"

are there any other ones we should get?



Here's a good one from a couple of years ago:

"The term 'crowd' has been kicked around for too darn long. No one wants to be part of it, everyone wants to stand out from it; and your Mother told you never to follow it. Well my friend, your mother was wrong. Do you think the crowd doesn't make a difference in a pennant race? When has the roar of one guy sitting in his den ever initimidated an opposing batter? I ask you, has your floor lamp ever high-fived you back? Can your schnauzer do the wave? (mine can, but not well. not well at all) No. You need a crowd to do these things. You think just one person built the pyramids of uh... Gybraulter? Did the efforts of one man put us on the Moon? No there were three guys, and they might have had help. So join the masses who yearn to scream 'charge!' and eat dome dogs!
For the time has come to join
THE CROWD "

I think they should have played off of MinneJoeta rather than Mauersota.

A couple of other good audio/video links a Twin’s fan should have handy:

I would say that I like the crowd commercial, except that part about the dog doing the wave. If you are old enough to drive yourself to the game, and you didn't bring a youngster with you, you are too old to do the wave. I get so sick of those drunk basterds telling me I'm not a fan for not doing the wave. I'm a better fan than you because I enjoy the damn game more than you do and I don't need to get drunk and make an ass out of myself to have a good time at the ball park. Thats for after the game, DUH!

The Hormel Row of fame is my all time favorite jingle. Everytime it comes on I sing along and get weird looks from the people around me.

C'mon everybody, you know the words!!!

Now that you are at the game
Are you in the Hormel Row of Fame?
If you're in a lucky seat
You'll win a Hormel hot dog treat
Great for lunch, great for dinner
You will be a wiener winner
In the Hormel Row of Fame!

Tony it's very interesting that you speak of the wave.

I am not sure how I feel about it.

I was at the USA/Canada and Mexico/Guadalupe games at Soldier field for the Gold Cup Soccer Semifinals (for all of you that are not soccer fans, that’s the north america/central america soccer tournament) I was at the game surrounded by 50,000 mexican fans.

As many of you are aware, the mexican fans are often credited for making the wave what it is today. Most of the European countries call it the "mexican wave" or "la ola" (spanish for wave).

I used to hate it, but watching 50,000 enthusiastic/drunk fans do it, fast and in slow motion it was pretty cool. In my opinion the wave is legit at some sporting events. Not Baseball.

The wave is unofficially banned at Wrigley because some padre fans in the bleachers were doing it to distract the cubs hitters during the playoffs. I think this should be the same in Minnesota.

what do you guys think of throwing opposing team hr balls back?

That Homer Hanky song reminds me of the video "Twins Win- The Story of the 1987 Minnesota Twins." So does the song "I Had the Time of My Life," as well.
I remember reading a story about the guy that voices the Twins Territory ads not too long ago, something about how he's not from around here and doesnt do much radio work anymore but wanted to do these ones because hes a big fan of the way the Twins do things. I dunno, I should try and find that story, he's half the magic in those ads.

i read the story as well. the dude is like 90 years old, and did the voice work for 'leave it to beaver'

"and jerry mathers as the beaver" with that great song in the background, and them all walkin outta the front door. classic.

as for throwing home run balls back, i guess i'm okay with it, even though cubs fans will bitch about any fans outside of wrigley doing it. it gets the crowd happier after a home run by the opposing team. and theres no stopping it now so its pointless to bitch.

"NA Na na na na na na..."

Best twins commercial ever!

The video of the wave at dodger stadium in like the 1982 world series (give or take a couple years) is incredible. I got goosebumps when I saw it. The wave is fine if your team is losing and you need a rally, AND if 99.9 percent of the crowd is doing it in a sold out stadium.

But its retarded at the Metrodome, because 1. The stadium is only 30% full 2. 13 Drunk guys in the upper general admission start yelling and attempt to get everyone to do it. 3. only about 15% of that 30% full metrodome fans participate, and it always extinguishes itself when it reaches those giant banners of Twins Greats.

I agree Tony, Hormel Row of Fame jingle is the greatest. I get happy everytime they play it at the dome.

I am one of the few proud owners of the Hormel Row of Fame MP3, which was acquired directly from the Twins marketing department and apparently cannot be found anywhere on the internet! I am using it to do the Hormel Row of Fame at my wedding reception!
