Since I'm not one of the lucky ones to be going to the Twins game tonight, I have opted to spend my night at the local sports bar. To most this may seems like a lame thing to do, but I was talking to a co-worker this morning and spelled it out for them as to why watching the first playoff game at a bar is so exciting to me. For you, I shall do the same:
In my opinion, there is nothing more magical than being at a sports arena with howling fans every time your team does something good. If you can't be there, then the next best thing is a sports bar. Why? Because you are still surrounded by fans. When there is a home-run or a touchdown, everyone goes BUCK WILD! While being at a bar may be distracting to some, it's a great experience for others; people watching, drinking or not, eating, and enjoying the game all at the same time!
There is nothing more exciting to me than giving high-fives to complete strangers who share my excitement... and there is a lot to be said about the good sport fans that cheer for the opposing teams while you heckle them.
Again, since I can't go to the game - I'll be cheering the Twins along from my barstool along with a handful of other Twins fans!
Lastly, Randy Moss is a Minnesota Viking again - and I think this is great news!
Go Twins and Go Vikings - it could be a magical year for the players and fans alike!
