Vikings beat the Packers last night to go 4-0 on the season thus far.

Twins beat the Tigers tonight to win the American League Central division and into the playoffs. Now, hopefully, they’ll be able to take on and beat the Yankees. Game 1 tomorrow at the new Yankee Stadium.

Yeah, I know … me blathering on about ball sports? It’s unlike me, but it’s also Minnesota … my ties go back a long, long time; over 31 years at this point.

So what we need is for the Twins to knock off the Yankees, and for the Angels to destroy the Red Sox … then for the Twins to take the ALCS in 7 games against the Angels. I don’t really care what happens in the National League, because the Twins are going all the way … the only other acceptable outcome would be Dodgers-Angels, with the Angels taking the Series.

I think I’m going to have to try and dig out my old Homer Hankies from the 1987 and 1991 World Series seasons.
