Night in the Cell with Joe Mauer

I went to the Sox/Twins game on 8/11/2010 with an old friend who is also a Sox fan. He's also a Twin.

Apparently quite a few Cubs fans I follow on Twitter also really, really like Joe Mauer.
I promised pictures.

He's good at baseball.

That's why he reached second. 
He got hurt. Then the trainer healed him with his neck.

Then he was all better. That made his teammates smile.

It made the Twins fans in front of us smile, too. I tried to reinforce their worst suspicions of White Sox fans by telling them to go back to Saskatchewan and worrying aloud that the warnings issued to both benches might hurt the international relations between Minnesota and the USA. I think they bought it.

Here's another shot of Mauer licking his lips.

And another, just for overkill.
Hopefully I can resume Cubs-only blogging activities soon. I hear we have some brand new players of our own, and I can't wait to meet them all.


  1. Great pics, Adam...I have enjoyed watching the Twins for many years, they have a unique (yet comfortably sterile) fan tradition all their own, and a local-boy franchise player the likes of which we'd all give our eye-teeth to have on our beloved Cubbies. Looks like it was quite a lively game, I would have loved to have been there.

  2. You. Are. The bestest.


Spill it.
