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

Thanks to the Twins, MLB attendance better this year

Why yes...Twins fans ARE that amazing. Thank you very much.

Those were good times, man, good times!: Your memories of game 5 of the 2002 ALDS

So: The idea for this thread came during a tangent on Randball's exceptional (as always) article for Demon's training video. The very idea of hilarious fielding errors inevitably led to a mention...

Official "Ultimate Twins Fan" contest with neat prizes, for those interested

I gathered all of my massive Twins collection immediately after hearing this, only to read the next morning that it applies exclusively to those who live in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, and the Dakotas. Guess the novelty of being a lifelong Californian who loves the Twins has its' limits...thus, I would love to see a fellow TT citizen win it!

Burning question: Are the Tigers a hated rival

Alright, so I've been considering this for awhile now, and especially after the legendary battle of Game 163 last year, I want to determine once and for all: Are the Detroit Tigers a truly HATED...

In the midst of a sluggish stretch, a very validating and inspiring look at where the Twins and their fans are now

From a Detroit site no less...perhaps it's just me, but this really reinvigorated my spirits after today's loss. Chin up, people!

Nothing new, but a definitive explanation on why Ramos for 1/2 season/postseason of Lee is ideal

It makes absolute sense. As we've well established by now, it really only depends on what starter we might have to deal.

So...how 'bout a Twinkie Town online store? (Plus ideas for items)

I was just cruising through Over the Monster for a (untyped) Nelson-from-the-Simpsons laugh at their Royal demise from today, and briefly noticed their online store on the left column. It's got a...

Yo Jesse, what are Twinkie Town's readership numbers?

Seeing the quality of activity and threads here at TT for awhile now, I remember a little while ago there was a post that tallied the growth of readership over the past year. I'm curious, what are...

What is your most prized Twins collectable?

A little while ago I saw a sweet news report on Clyde Doepner, the number one Twins collector (if you haven't seen it, check it out here at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=URvKMb79gCc). The guy's...

Anyone else seen this advert? This guy is a legend. He gets the stances down to the most distinct mannerisms. Also, about the sound the crowd makes whenever Jason Kubel is up (since this was too short for a FanPost): Are they shouting "Kuuuuuuubbbbeee" or something like that? It reminds me of how Bruce Springsteen fans always yell "Bruuuucceeee," even though it sounds like they're booing. And being a Springsteen fan myself, I must say Kubel does deserve similar accolades.
