I was lucky enough to get the day off and attend the American League Division Series Game One, the Minnesota Twins vs. the Oakland A’s at the Metrodome (thanks to Ozzy). Even though the Twins lost 3-2 it was a great time. I only saw one A’s fan the entire time I was there.
It was my first live attendance of a playoff game for any professional team, ever. The fans explode for absolutely everything. Santana is stretching out, standing ovation. Gardy brings the player card to the umpires, standing ovation. Joe Mauer is up to bat, standing ovation. Santana has two strikes, blow the damn roof off.
The lines to buy Homer Hankies were looooooong. It was pointed out to me that they are selling on ebay for $10, but you can just call 800-33Twins and get them at regular price (more info here).
