Spheroid: My Life According to Baseball
While all of the attention has been on the Tigers and White Sox atop the tough American League Central this season, Torii Hunter and those Twins have been quietly streaking back to .500 with a nucleus of young talent and the prospect of a brand-new outdoor ballpark looming after this decade is through. If you are a Twins fan, then that is Nick and that is My Life According to Baseball. Here are Nine Questions with today’s featured Spheroid:
Why did you sign up for an MLBlog?
What is your favorite team and why?
The Minnesota Twins, hands down. Being from Minneapolis, the Twins took over my life from the beginning. Since I was too young to remember first-hand what the 1991 World Series was like, I spent 2002-2004 in heaven when the Twins won the AL Central three years in a row. Since the Baltimore Orioles are the closest American League team to me, I go to every game when the Twins are in Baltimore. Lucky for me, the Twinkies are visiting twice this year which mean I will have six great times in Baltimore.
What is your favorite thing about blogging?
My favorite thing about blogging is definitely the connections and friendships born through the common love of baseball. The network of fans is very strong over at The Baseball Collector’s blog, as I’m sure it is at many other blogs, too.
Favorite blogs, including at least one MLBlog:
I have to say The Baseball Collector as my number one favorite MLBlog because if not for Zack, then I wouldn’t be blogging today. I also really enjoy seeing what Chad is up to with his latest contest or predictions on games at Charge the Mound.
Most memorable Major League moment(s):
"And we’ll see you tomorrow night!" 1991 World Series: Braves and Twins. After placing last in their respective division the year prior, the Braves and Twins battled for seven games in what was considered to be one of the greatest series ever played. In Game 6, Kirby Puckett robbed a home run from Ron Gant and then hit a walk-off home run in the bottom of the 11th to send the series to Game 7. Jack Morris pitched 10 shutout innings in Game 7 to earn the win and a World Series victory for the Minnesota Twins.
What would you be doing if you weren’t blogging?
Probably just as many things as I am doing while I am blogging. Besides working, playing baseball, and enjoying summer, blogging on MLBlogs.com is one of the many things I love to do everyday. I am thankful that MLB.com is hosting this gathering of great fans to share their opinions and be heard.
Last item you bought at the MLB.com Shop?
A Minnesota Twins hat. The one with the "TC." Go Twins!
Happiness is . . .
Watching the Twins celebrate their third World Series victory this October.
