So Long, Farewell…

A quick story about a baseball season coming to an end:

In September of 2007, the Minnesota Twins were winding down a very disappointing campaign.  At the time, I was attending college at the University of Minnesota-Morris and happened to be on campus for a weekend.

Now, I had a variety of options: from which to spend my day: Video games, movies, sleeping, studying (!), etc.  The Twins were just playing out a string of meaningless games.

Almost needless to say, I spent the afternoon watching the Twins game.  Why?  Because I knew that, in a few months, all I would want is for baseball to return, so I decided to enjoy one final game.  For whatever reason, that very day and game also seem to stick out in my mind.

Due to work/school requirements, I may not get the same opportunity the next couple of days (I’ll watch what I can), but the feeling is still kind of the same.  Though right now I just want this nightmare season to come to a close, I also know that Spring Training never quite comes early enough, either.

Notes:

-Ozzie Guillen is gone from the White Sox (probably headed to Florida).  Let the NL East deal with him, is what I say.  I think Ozzie is probably a better tactical manager than many people (including myself) give him credit for, but his personality is just too brash and profane for my tastes.

Preview (61-99, 5th, 10 GB KCR): Sean O’Sullivan (2-5, 6.92) vs. Anthony Swarzak (3-7, 4.42)
