I've watched a lot of baseball over the last three weeks and I've seen a lot of fans in the stands wearing parkas, stocking caps, and gloves; and covered with blankets. As long as the professional baseball season is going to run right up to November, I've got a hunch someone is going to seriously propose a neutral site for the World Series. No one I've talked to thinks it's a good idea, and for that reason, I don't have a strong conviction that it will happen. On the other hand, you could probably argue that baseball could create a four to seven day celebration the way the NFL packages the Super Bowl.
The weather was cold and wet during the week that the Twins played the Tigers and then the Yankees in the last two games in the Metrodome. It occurred to me that if the Twins are in the playoffs next year, maybe these weren't the last ML baseball games in the Metrodome. I don't know any fans who aren't excited about outdoor baseball returning to Major League baseball in MN, but how many postponements would it take to move back inside just to get the games played. Just a thought.
I think I can safely predict the Twins will start selling some of those very fashionable baseball caps with ear flaps. We'll probably need them. What do you think?
Goons Be Gone - Coming from a long time fan and ice hockey enthusiast, I simply have to say - goons be gone. Cheap and dirty play like this tarnishes the game, the league....
