Let’s be honest, this is undoubtedly the best Minnesota Twins team that the club has had since 2006 and—arguably—the best overall team since the club’s fortunes turned around at the beginning of the last decade.
As such, I’ve decided to eschew my usual fears about angering the mighty Baseball Gods and I’m going to go ahead and show an overwhelming amount of optimism, rather than temper my enthusiasm in fear of “getting too cocky.”
With that in mind…
That’s right, my Faithful Readers, I’ve got four bottles of bubbly on ice and waiting.
One for when the Twins clinch the American League Central.
One for when the Twins win the American League Division Series.
One for when the Twins win the American League Championship Series.
…and one, glorious bottle that’s waiting—oh-so-patiently, mind you—for the Twins to win the World Series.
It’s tough enough being a Twins fan in Boston and having a very limited pool of brethren to enjoy this amazing season with, but I’m certainly not going to sit back quietly and let these major milestones pass with little more than an excited Tweet or Facebook post.
If When the Twins win, I’m gonna celebrate and I’m gonna celebrate right…by spraying champagne in my girlfriend’s eyes and screaming like a mad man…just like the pros!!
PS: Following tonight’s big come-from-behind win over the Indians, I’m currently watching the Athletics lay the smack down on the White Sox thanks to the fine folks at MLB.tv. An Oakland win clinches the division tonight!! Sure, sure…it’ll be like one in the morning before this is over, but whatevs…
PPS: It should also be noted that I’m watching the White Sox home feed of the game on MLB.tv, mostly because I’m hoping to hear Hawk Harrelson cry before the night is over.
UPDATE: OH HELLS YES!!! Let’s go ahead and run the B-Squad out there tomorrow when everyone has the “flu-like symptoms” (read: hangovers) and then let’s see about winning the whole f’n thing!!
