My wife and I took my two oldest kids to a Minnesota Twins game today. My beloved Twins took on the Indians of Cleveland. It was a noon game so it worked out great for the kids.
The Twins promptly shellacked the Indians with 4 homeruns, much to the delight of my kids. They are still too young to appreciate the nuances associated with baseball, so the crowd pleasing long balls help. The Twins won 11-3. I was proud that my kids lasted the whole 9 innings (the cotton candy helped).
I took some pictures:
The Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome will be replaced next season by Target field. The dome will still be used by the Vikings, but thankfully, baseball will once again be played under the sun in Minnesota.
Every time I go to the Dome, I can't help but notice something. Here is a picture of the roof. Notice anything?
Here's a closeup of the middle.
That's right. The HHH Metrodome is a bigotted bastard and Nazi sympathizer. Who is the moron that designed that stupid roof.
I hope that someday, instead of imploding the thing like they did to the Kingdome, I hope they fill it up with air until the think pops.
