(Almost) Undefeated Weekend

Describing my state of mind regarding the Twins going into this weekend would only have taken one word: Frustrated.  But starting Saturday I vowed to turn it around.  It wasn’t going to be easy, but I had a five game slate set up guaranteed to reignite my Twins fandom.

Game the First – 1991 World Series, Game 6 (MLB Network – Saturday 11 A.M.)

Game the Fourth – 1987 World Series, Game 6 (1987 World Series DVD Set – Sunday when I woke up)

Game the Fifth – 2009 Minnesota v. Detroit (MLB.tv – Sunday 12:00 P.M.)

This really did not pan out quite as well as the other four games, but nevermind, a weekend record of 4-1 ain’t too bad, right?

    • Mine will always be Hrbek after his grand slam – I literally cried when he hit that HR. Sure, I was only five years old, but still.

  1. You probably don’t get to see it in the places where you live but there is an AWESOME commercial (celebrating dome memories) in which Hrbek, Morris and Gladden re-enact the grand slam trot from ’87, the last strikeout from the top of the 10th, and tagging up to score the winning run from ’91. They flash back and forth from the real thing to the the present. Herbie is chubbier now but he still flashes that ear-to-ear grin. Gives me the giggles and the tingles (gingles? tiggles?) every time!
    P.S. And, yes, I do have a very clear memory of you crying for joy.
