Two In A Row and Counting

The recent weeks have not been an easy stretch for Twins fans in general, or, in particular, for fans of my friend Batgirl. Mentioning the details of both situations will only give them credibility and thereby reinforce the general crappiness that has been happening lately, so I’m not going to get into it. What I want to point out is that the Twins have now won two games in a row, which, these days, totally counts as a HOT STREAK, and at the same time, some of the Batgirl old-timers have come out of hiding and are once again participating in the witty banter that brought me into the Batling fold in the first place.

Coincidence? Perhaps. If it were anyone else, I would say definitely. But Batgirl, she seems to have an in with the Baseball Gods, and will therefore prevail, even in the face of stupid jealous stats-mongering boys who say mean things about her out of spite, and who should really just mind their own damn blogs, because I’m pretty sure that Torii Hunter has never crossed a room to give THEM a hug.

Ahem.

Which is why I feel so optimistic about the fact that My Ho has acquired most excellent tickets for tonight’s game. It’s not Dollar-a-Dog night, but I have a good feeling. A Hormel Row of Fame kind of feeling. A feeling like yeah, things have been a little off lately. There was thunder, there was hail, there were losses to the freaking BREWERS, but everything is going to be okay.

Real fans don't swan dive off the bandwagon just because of a piddly little ten games out of first place. And real friends don't disappear altogether when things get a little weird. And I have a feeling that by October, we're ALL gonna be weiner winners.
