BASEBALL PLAYOFFS: OUT WITH THE ALDS
Be honest. Which catchphrase do you like better for the Twins: Kiss my A's! or Contract this!
After the Game 5 win in Oakland, the Minnesota clubhouse received a congratulatory phone call from owner Carl Pohlad. Very emotional. Manager Ron Gardenhire could barely say, "Yes, operator. I'll accept the charges."

Several of the opening-round games were carried on ABC Family Channel. I don't know what kind of cross-promotional deal they worked, but the Twins had to clear playoff roster spots for Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.
By the way, can these games drag on a little longer? The last thing I watched on TV that long had a dead actor montage in the middle.
