Diehard Dodgers and baseball,. Twins fan first and foremost from 2000 to 2013 until Ron Gardenhire was extended after three consecutive losing seasons. Until he's gone or the organization is properly run and holds people accountable, I'm utterly disinterested in whatever happens to them. Also love the Oakland Athletics and Sacramento Kings, and there are various others I can root for if none of my diehard favorites are in the mix. Hated teams include St. Louis Cardinals, San Francisco Giants, Boston Red Sox, and New England Patriots. Baseball, boxing, basketball, and football are my top four sports. Hockey's fun too. NASCAR is an abomination, and while I can see some of the nuance of soccer I'm just not a huge fan.

In addition to my real-life love of sports, I'm also the creator of my own education/history/sports franchise, the United States Presidents Baseball Club. In it, I took all of America's presidents and turned them into a baseball team, with each one filling a front office, playing, or coaching role based on their real-life accomplishments and personalities. There are trading cards available along with other materials at the official website, www.presidentsbaseball.com.

A Fan Of...

  • MLB Los Angeles Dodgers
  • NBA Sacramento Kings
  • NFL New York Jets
  • General Los Angeles Dodgers, Oakland Athletics. Might get back to being a Twins fan when Ron Gardenhire is finally gone.
  • Winter Olympics U.S.A.
  • NASCAR NASCAR blows
  • Boxing Barry McGuigan, Arturo Gatti, Joe Louis, among many others
  • Golf Jack Nicklaus
  • Fantasy Cooperstown Legends, All-Time Minnesota Twins Team
  • Wrestling Ric Flair, The Rock, and a few others. I'm more a fan of certain wrestling personalities than wrestling itself, but it can be decent mindless entertainment.
  • Summer Olympics U.S.A.
  • MMA Ronda Rousey

Celebrity Twins fans

Not sure if this has been discussed here, but all the same, I've always wanted to see a definitive list of celebrity Twins fans. And yes, it couldn't be nearly on the scale of Yankees and Red Sox...

Where should Perkins go?

So speculating endlessly over Glen Perkins is far from new, but I'd still like to see a gauge of where people think he should go. I am admittedly biased in saying this, as the Dodgers are my NL...

Mike Scioscia for Twins Manager: Yay or Nay? (Likely hypothetical, but still)

I know the front office has made it clear that Gardy will likely keep his job, especially for the sake of the current rebuilding process. So this question is probably just a hypothetical one, but...

My Presidents Baseball cards are ready for sale!

Hey everyone! So some time ago I came up with an idea where all the Presidents come together to form a baseball team, with each position corresponding to their personality, history, and achievements. In true baseball fashion, each one is captured on a trading card. We've worked tirelessly on the site and everything for awhile, and the deck is now ready for sale! Give it a look if you will. Thanks. :)

I figure many here are aware of this site, but for those who aren't, this is about as exhaustive a collectors place as you'll find. Enjoy!

Buster Olney does a fine job laying out the case for the Twins being prepared and better in the playoffs. Stuff we've basically aired over and over and already expect, but nice to see it from ESPN for once.

Your favorite players in all of baseball (Twins included)

Nice little find, Guerrier grew up an Indians fan. Slightly poor quality since it's a video of a TV broadcast.
