Kinda Obscure Friday Notes I Think You'd Like

- I had planned on going to Twinsfest next weekend for two reasons: Opening Day tickets, 2. buy last game at the dome tickets. But Twins single game tickets won't go on sale until February, 7th. There are two reasons for this, I was told: They are still looking to sell season-ticket packages, and a later date gives them more time and more seats. The Twins are one of the first teams in the majors to sell single game tix. The second reason is the new ticketing system. Images of ticketmaster overcharges danced in my head. But this fellow down at 34 Kirby Puckett Place assured me that it was just an MLB-wide ticketing system. Whatever. Now I have no reason to go to Twinsfest.

I received an email from a friend the other day, asking why AH shows no love for the T-wolves. They've been playin better ball lately, but I'll acknowledge the Tubby Smiths before the Wolves.

However, I dug up this Lost Post, filed under 'Ya know what grinds my gears'

Terrible rap music while the home team has the ball during NBA games.

Music at NBA games.

- Often with new technology, prices are inconsistent. This HDTV is selling for $7,488.99
I'm fine with my rabbit ears, thank you very much.

- The Saints picked a cold week to announce their plans for an outdoor baseball game in February. Link.

- How cold is it? It's so cold that the Twins Caravan won't start. It's so cold that Pohlad won't be buried until pitchers and catchers report. It's so cold that Billy Smith is hibernating with TC Bear.

- The Twins announced today that U.S. Bank will be their second corporate partner. Ready for this? U.S. Bank Home Run Porch. I can't wait to hear that roll off Gordo's tongue. "Here's a drive from Morneau, deep to right field, and there it goes! he just cashed in at U.S. Bank Home Run Porch. Touch 'em all!"

- Since no one died, I think it's okay that we have a caption contest:

I wouldnt be fine with rabbit ears if I couldnt get MLB Network Mike. For the past two weeks Ive watched nothing but classic games and baseball coverage. Awesome.

I think we might need to do an article on Tubby's' team pretty soon. I thought it might be too premature until last nights game. That was some comeback in Madison, reminded me of how all those close games went in our favor like that in 97.'

Ummm. I hate to break it to you but the single-game tickets don't go on sale until March 4. Crappy, isn't it?

Crap. I got that wrong. It's March 7th.

Time to go to bed.
