Sea of Purple

September 11, 2017

I went for a walk this morning and this town is a sea of purple. Downtown skyways and streets, purple is everywhere.

The most confusing thing for me is why are people walking around downtown Minneapolis eight hours before a football game starts? And they’re tailgaiting, too. I don’t get it. It’s not like this is a Grateful Dead concert or anything. If only . . .

Oh well.

I’m not a football fan so all I know about the Vikings is what I see on the news and I don’t know anything about any of the other teams. But I can tell you that among New Orleans fans – and based only on the jerseys I saw during my walk – I think a guy named “Brees” is very popular.

In the meantime, the Minnesota Twins have a one game lead in the Wild Card standings over the Los Angeles Angels   California Angels   Anaheim Angels Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim with only 19 games left to play. I’m confident, but with three of those 19 games against the Yankees in New York and three of those 19 games in Cleveland against the Indians, I’m not overly confident.

Unfortunately, the Twins aren’t playing tonight so I’ll have to find something else to do. Maybe wrestling? OK, maybe something else.

Here’s something that bothers me: Why, as soon as football season starts, does ESPN have to drop Monday Night Baseball? They have two major channels so why not the NFL on ESPN and MLB on ESPN2 instead of the NFL on ESPN and the NFL in Spanish on ESPN2?

One of life’s mysteries.
