Anyone see the game last night?

10 posts in this topic

I think the Twins were losing 8 to 3 when I turned on the game and they scored 5 runs in the 9th to tie it up and send it into extra innings. Then on the first pitch Morneau knocks one out of the park and the Twins win 9 to 8. It was a great come from behind win.

Why don't these games make news highlight reels? I couldn't find anything on ESPN.

The streak will end today. The Twins haven't won on a Thursday this season.

Plus Guillen had a meltdown in the Royals locker room and I didn't hear anything about that until I read it on the internet.

The Royal's must be [PoorWordUsage] off at letting that one slip away. Their starting pitcher threw a great game and their bullpen blew it (of course their closer threw 2 innings the night before so he wasn't available). My wife and I were watching the game periodically and were going to switch back to basketball when Kubel and Lamb got things going in the 9th. Monroe's HR was a hoot - hollywood couldn't have scripted it any better (3-2, 2 out, 9th inning).

Did anyone watch Baseball Tonight? I tuned in halfway through the show, and I heard nothing about the Twins. Pretty bad when the best game of the day doesn't even make highlights. Money means everything to these people.

Ya Slowey pitched great. Only 6 hits given up and the final was 5 to 1 Twins.

Im just glad that young wasnt in. all we need him to do is miss 2 very easy pop up fly balls. That really hurt us yesterday, but thankfully we were able to come back in the 9th.

The twins won despite a couple blunders in the field.

    • Apparently it took one to know one
    • Well, yes and no.  When the distillery opened they hired Steve Nally of Makers Mark fame and all of the ingredients come from the local area.  The facility is cool, the bottle and label are cool... it had everything going for it.  But for some reason the partners decided on releasing it earlier than planned, and about this time Nally (who the story claims did not agree with this decision) parted ways with them.  Because of promotion there was a lot of interest and advanced sales and some dealers were limited to a case or two.  But it really bombed hard, and some batches (the bottles show batch numbers) were way worse than others. It didn't turn out like they planned it would and after a while most of the sales were to tourists. On the bright side, after a few years WW admitted they had a problem and began blending batches (and likely made other changes as well), and even had representatives travel the state giving free samples of the "new" WW.  It has improved slightly, but many folks still have the bad taste in their mouth.  A dealer I know told me the liquor commission in Cheyenne (all sales go through them) has something like 500 cases in the warehouse and it's a slow mover.      I actually ordered a case so I could give it out to customers, as luck would have it the bar I ordered through only got 2 cases on that first order, so all of the pre-order people just got a couple of bottles, and they kept a few back for stocking the bar.  For a couple of days patrons were sampling it at the bar and it began to get the thumbs down. I actually cancelled my order for the remaining case.  I did make it halfway through one bottle, but wound up tossing the rest.  I kept the unopened one just because it might be worth something in 20 or 30 years.   Yep nice color alright. The flavor is slightly sweet with a hint of oak, vanilla and kerosene, and it has a burn.  The first glass is sort of deceiving and after the second the flavor becomes unpleasant.  Most believe it's just too young and needed the full aging. 
    • And Yet, 8 years later!
    • Come on Duff, you gotta know it was just picking one liar over the other. The difference being that there is a small chance his lies were not generated by the machine.  In the end it doesn't matter what he says but what he can get others to do.    I gave Barry a chance to do the job and I extend the same to Donald. My guess though is that what he will bring will not be what his voters are looking for but at times we need to go through that to get to where we want to be.   In the meantime maybe tanning booths will make a comeback
    • I am more baffled by the people who think the far right and far left are somehow different and not capable of ignorant acts. Like somehow or somewhere the extremists of your party are somehow better than the extremists of the other, hopefully some people are having their eyes opened.

      Even better there are those out there that think if only the left/right could take over and make things they way they are "suppose" to be would suddenly fix everything. Like alienating half the country is going to be good for America. The further the country gets torn in half the more it looks like there is only one place to to go and that is back to the middle where people work together. Of course that would put a lot of the media out of work but it is more clear than ever they are more of a hazzard than anything.
    • If I remember correctly Ted Cruz did call him a pathological liar during the primaries.
    • How anybody can believe any word that comes out of that pumpkin pie hole is beyond me.   Y'all got duped by a compulsive liar. At least he has that part of being a politician down pat, but for it to work ya need to slip some truth in there now and again.
    • And yet?   Donald J. Trump ‏@realDonaldTrump Jan 21 A fantastic day and evening in Washington D.C.Thank you to @FoxNews and so many other news outlets for the GREAT reviews of the speech!
