Those Twins Are Hot

Despite the very poor start of the baseball season, my favorite baseball team the Minnesota Twins have gotten back into the swing of playing ball and are on a roll. Yet so are the Detroit Tigers and the Chicago White Sox. Being 11 games out of first, it's tough to get excited to watch them, but they have just had an outstanding month of June, yet so have the Tigers and White Sox. This photo is from the Seattle game played earlier in June or the very last week of May. The Twins are on the field and Johan Santana is the pitcher on the mound.

Hello there! This is my first visit. With so many DP sites, it's hard to keep track.

Go Twins!

Win Twins!

I have a real Homer Hankie! :)

Steve Lombardozzi was my first crush! :)

Keeeeeent Hrrrrrbeck!

Went to a game for a field trip in 2nd grade, when the team played outdoors! :)

Skipped school to go to the 1987 World Series celebration downtown!

Played on the field (band) during the 1991 World Series!

Late schoolnight games with my Dad!

The Twins will always remind me of my favorite person, my Grandmother, Marian... the Original Twins Fan! Love & miss you Gram! :)

Rest In Peace, Kirby!

My baby waves her homer hankie....I know there was a song about the homer hankie, but I can only recall the chorus. I too still have mine.

Now this is freaky. I recall going to a game at Met Stadium, outdoors when I was very young for a school field trip. Plus my dad took me a to a couple of games and I only remember sitting in the outfield as a child.

I also skipped school to go to the World Series parade in 1987.

I'd bet we are close in age considering the time frame of those two events.

One thing that is neat, I went with my two children at the end of the school year as the school went to the Metrodome for a class trip. So they are keeping that baseball field trip alive in Minnesota. My two kids ended kindergarden and 1st grade and will have vauge memories of the Twins playing in the dome as the new outdoor stadium opens in 2010!

That is SO awesome about your kids' field trip to the Metrodome! Very cool tradition!

Yes, we are close in age, I am 32. I assume you went to Humboldt, although we would not have been in high school at the same time (unless you were a 6th year senior!:). I knew two girls, who were twins (Amy & Becky), that may have graduated about when you did (if you went there). My Grandmother graduated from Humboldt! I ended up going to Sibley, which is where my Mother went and was in the 1st graduating class in the new building. Exciting info, I know. :)

I now have 3rd grade, kindergarten and preschool aged sons but we live in Florida so alas, I cannot continue the tradition! Actually, the schools are so crappy here that I homeschool our boys! I do miss MN for many reasons, not the least are the schools!

Thanks for all of the great pics & posts!

I am 34, graduated from Humboldt, back then it was the Humboldt Indians, now the Humboldt Hawks. sigh....

I know it was the Sibley Warriors, so I googled the school to see what their new mascot was, to my surprise, they are still the Warriors! Midieval Knights mascot, very clever I must admit.

Amy and Becky were one grade younger than me. I know them, but not very well. Our last names were at the opposite end of the alphabet, so the alphabetical seating, we never really had much of a chance to chat.
