For the second year in a row, LOHO has spoken. And it has chosen to support the Minnesota Twins in their postseason run.

Game 1 is tonight at 7:30 pm CT against the evil Yanks.

Let's go Twinks.

Good idea. Let's root for another team that'll get swept out of the playoffs by Big Joe and the pinstripes.

Cue the overture for "Titanic"....

I can't support this. Bud Selig informed me several years ago that the Twins' success was an aberration and they were likely candidates for contraction. I never question anything Bud says.

Doc said:

user-pic

Well...I think I'll go away until Saturday night after the Twins get swept by the Yanks.

Go Phillies!

JulieDiCaro said:

Okay look.

Let's nip this in the bud right now.

This was a fair vote. Just because your team lost doesn't mean you can go skipping off and cheer for other teams? You're not on board with the Twins? Well you GET ON BOARD, Mister.

Okay, since I'm now a Twins fan, do I use certain phrases when talking about the Twins, and more importantly what musical guests will show up for the playoffs: Prince? The Replacements? Ready For the World?

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

Ready for the World was from MN? As in "Oh Sheila?"

Cooooooool.

I think it was @metsgrrl that saw Paul Westerberg at a Twinks game. Can you imagine?

Our postseason song shall be "I'll Be You," as we're pretending to be Twins fans.

Max Power said:

I believe that you meant to say that "Shiftless When Idle" is the postseason song.

Either that or "Skol Vikings"

Doc said:

user-pic

I'll just tread water for the next four days.

Congrats to the Twinkies...

I'd better wash my homer hanky. Go Twins!

Max Power said:

I actually have one of those from 1987 (and I believe another from 1991), although I am sure they are at my parents' house.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

We need to get to know the Twins. Perhaps a post about the best-looking Twinks is in order?

plamorte said:

user-pic

save that for espnW

PsyMar1 said:

user-pic

I was planning on supporting the Twins anyway. That said, if the Twins fail to beat the Yankees (again), I may start rooting for Kerry Wood, especially if the Rangers make the ALCS.

Dmband said:

user-pic

Cj-

If you post about the best looking twins, in all fairnesss I think you have to show thier wives also. I mean...whatever happened to equality?

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

photos of the wives are hard to find. Maybe we could just do hot people from MN in general?

Dmband said:

user-pic

I can accept these terms.

Rich Beckman said:

user-pic

I once knew a hot babe from Minneapolis. She had no interest in me.

HackWilson09 said:

user-pic

I once had a woman who looked like Babe the Pig. I had no interest in Minneapolis.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

do you have a photo of her? we're gonna need it.

Doc said:

user-pic

So you are saying we need more pictures of hot babes on this site?

Rich Beckman said:

user-pic

Probably, but I have no idea where. And I'm not about to try and find it (them?). Sorry.

HackWilson09 said:

user-pic

I think the Twins won because these are Cubs fans, and nobody wants to win anything.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

and because we enjoyed watching them beat the Sox.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

Honestly, the Yankees are nowhere near the team they were last season. I think the Twinks have a decent shot.

Dmband said:

user-pic

If Minnesota can beat Sabathia, the rest of the Yanks rotation is suspect.

Doc said:

user-pic

You go on thinking that.

Teebob2000 said:

user-pic

Him, and pretty much every other analyst I've heard...

Dmband said:

user-pic

I accurately predicted the NL playoff teams save for the reds, for the record. Although I did point out in the same thread the Reds were considered the sexy pick.

The AL on the other hand? Not so much.

Doc said:

user-pic

So...do you want a cookie or something?

(I'm in a pissy mood today.)

Dmband said:

Brenley new Brewers Manager. Dammit. DAMMIT

Doc said:

user-pic

I posted this rumor on my site...

But almost immediately after I posted something, Doug Melvin, Brewers GM said that "Unless somebody else has been doing the hiring process, it's not true."

Brenly is still in our booth for now.

gravedigger said:

user-pic

why dammit?

JulieDiCaro said:

Rangers/Rays in the top of the 1st on TBS

Cliff Lee v. David Price

sloan peterson said:

Why now, when everyone is at work?

gravedigger said:

user-pic

Seriously.

PsyMar1 said:

user-pic

I picked 5 playoff teams correctly! Although I had the Giants and Rays as WCs (had the Yankees winning the AL East, and the Rockies (oops) winning the NL west). My mistakes were the Rockies, Cubs, and Indians. (And I had the Indians winning the WS -- OOOOOOOOOOPS)

Doc said:

user-pic

I had the Rays, Giants and Phillies all picked right...

Missed with the WCards and the other 3 divisions...Red Sox, Marlins, Cubs, Tigers and Angels.

plamorte said:

user-pic

lol cubs

Doc said:

user-pic

oh, shut up!

gravedigger said:

user-pic

I was also wrong about the Cubs. I picked them to finish last.

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

The word of the day today is "whoopy," used by @hey_sue to describe Eric Karros' hair.

Doc said:

user-pic

Hmmm...Rangers and Rays playing for the right to play the Yankees in the ALCS. Fun!

secdelahc said:

user-pic

Let's go Twins! (I don't have to root for the Vikings or Gophers now, do I?)

Max Power said:

user-pic

Damned right you do. Julie is a strong supporter of both (despite her claims otherwise).

secdelahc said:

user-pic

I guess the Vikings are better than the Packers. But I just can't bring myself to root for the Gophers. Sorry, Max, I'm a Spartan through and through.

kiwibob said:

user-pic

Poor Twins... I wonder how badly we can wreck their postseason this year.
Go Twins!

Doc said:

user-pic

Why is the picture at the top of the site of Prince Fielder and Carlos Silva on motorcycles the only one in black and white? Do you have something against fat ballplayers?

gravedigger said:

user-pic

I'm also not on board with this. Sorry, groupthink doesn't make my decisions for me.

Go Rangers!

JulieDiCaro said:

user-pic

step into my office for a moment, will you?

gravedigger said:

user-pic

For cake and ice cream?

Dmband said:

user-pic

I hate not being able to respond to comments.

1) Doc- yes, I in fact do want a cookie. Preferably double stuffed oreo
2)GD I said Dammit because I really like Bob in the booth

HackWilson09 said:

user-pic

Re: #2 -- Well, that makes one of us.

Gracey? Rick Sutcliffe???

Doc said:

user-pic

I really like Len and Bob together...and I'd be sad to see Brenly go...

But if we get Keith Moreland in return, then I'll cope.

sloan peterson said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

I actually totally enjoy Sutcliffe when I get him for an ESPN game....But I like Moreland as well...

berselius said:

user-pic

As much as I dislike Brenly, those two would be even worse.

Actually, my keen dislike of Brenly lessened a lot this year after he justified Z's dugout antics and called the Cubs a "dead-ass" team. He was absolutely right.

Doc said:

user-pic

That very well might have been the highlight of Brenly's broadcasting career.

gravedigger said:

user-pic

Agree, it was nice to see. I'm just tored of the "old hipster" schtick.

gravedigger said:

user-pic

Yeah, exactly...

Doc said:

user-pic

Sorry...you get Chips-Ahoy...the double stuffed oreos are mine.

HackWilson09 said:

user-pic

Okay, scrap everything, the Twins, Kerry Wood, forget all that.

I want to see Cliff Lee facing Roy Halladay in 3 of the 7 games in the World Series. That's a dream.

Doc said:

user-pic

That would be serious cool...except for the fact the rangers would be in the world series.

sloan peterson said:

default userpic local-auth auth-type-mt

With our luck if the Rangers are in the World Series America will have to put up with a parade of members of the Bush family, and all the singers will be from country music.....

Doc said:

user-pic

As I recall, most of the Bushes were Astros fans...W just bought the Rangers because he could.

gravedigger said:

user-pic

So, this phils game is pretty interesting...

Doc said:

user-pic

I'm risking detention by our teacher...but "GO DOC!!! GO PHILS!!!" (Halladay and I are related.)

Doc said:

user-pic

For anyone hoping that they would see Rich Harden this post-season...

The Rangers just DFA'd him.

Doc said:

user-pic

NO HITTER!!!!

WOOOHOOO!!!

That's my team there, folks!!!

PHILLIES!

DOC!!!

YES!!!!

(I'm done yelling now.)

Doc said:
