I found this short little movie last night, from the MLB, in honor of the anniversary of this great game.
I was 2 years old when the Twins won this World Series and it is still the only major championship I have been alive for (go ahead @ me Lynx fans. I know you will). I still can’t imagine exactly what it would be like to watch a Minnesota team play in a championship game. I can’t imagine the aftermath in the Twin Cities…. the aftermath in my own life. I don’t know if my marriage would make it through…. You might not see me for a week…. I might end up in jail…. the possibilities are endless, really.
But, let’s get back on track. I can’t get enough coverage of the ’91 championship. After this game, I became a Twins’ fanatic. My mom and dad still like to talk about my obsession for the team back then, and my obsession for Chuck Knoblauch. At 3 years old, I could name the entire Twins’ starting lineup. My little league coaches hated be because I had to step out of the box and tighten my batting gloves, like Knoblauch after every pitch as I would get a few years older. I can’t even get my daughter to watch one inning with me.. Where did I go wrong?
Anyway, grab your coffee and a chair this morning, or take a seat on that toilet, and get ready for the goosebumps. This is incredible.
Happy Friday Minnesota.
