Wow. Simply wow. All the cynicism/pessimism/realism or whatever you want to call it is completely gone right now. Being at that game was AWESOME. I can't recall the last time I was that fired up. A complete and thorough domination in that series, with the exception of one single inning that pretty much wanted to make kill myself and/or rush the field and light everyone on fire. But we're not talking about that. It was simply awesome.
I was there with my friend from Brazil, and he had never been to a baseball game before and what an introduction. I've never seen him so fired up about anything. He went to school at Michigan State, so his reaction after the game was to try to set a car on fire. I had to put a stop to that, as much as I would have enjoyed it. Just awesome.
I don't really understand how the world's worst bullpen can go into complete shut down mode for two games, but whatever man, I don't care - just awesome. I personally would have gone with Bonser for another inning, but again, I don't care. Gardy is a genius. Carlos Gomez is an excellent hitter. The Metrodome is a wonderful ballpark. Nick Swisher totally swung at that ball. The Gophers are going to beat the Buckeyes. People with Twins' jerseys with their own names on the back are not idiots.
