There was a Twins marketing campaign 19 years ago called Twinnin. It was a local WCCO TV effort to promote the 1991, eventual World Champion Minnesota Twins. I liked alot, and I liked that team more. I liked it so much that I bought the domain for one of my first blogs pre-THESPORTSDADDY.COM.
I am anxiously waiting for the rash of new songs to hit the local Twin Cities Radio Stations. Pennant Fever is at high pitch here, and I can’t wait to see what songs will replace the “Polka for the Pennant” and the “Berenguer Boogie” for the 2010 post season.
I do want the Homer Hanky to read “Jim Thome’s Homie Hankie” though.
In 1991 Twins fans like me got to see guys like Chuck Knoblauch, (ROY), Kent Hrbek, Kirby Puckett, Dan Gladden, Chilli Davis, Shane Mack, Brian Harper, Al Newman,Gene Larkin, Randy Bush, Mike Pagliarulo, Greg Gagne, Scott Erickson, Jack Morris, Brian Harper,Kevin Tapani, Rick Aguilera, Carl Willis and Steve Bedrosian jam out to Win Twins and Twinnin all season long and deep into some October rings. Good times.Tags: baseball. Target Field, homer hankies, Jim Thome, Pennant fever, playoffs, Twins
