It was a great game. As long as you weren’t a Twins fan.

On the 24th, a group of us went to the Twins v. Red Sox game.  I’ll say the painful part first.  The Twins lost 11-2.  They were already losing at the fifth pitch.  Yeah, you read that right.  Fifth pitch.  The first batter up (Mike Aviles) got a double off of the third pitch and makes it home when Ryan Sweeney hit a single off of his second pitch.  After that the game just went into a downward spiral.  But, hey, we were at Target Field watching baseball!  If you do get a chance, watch a game there, it’s worth it.  One of the promo things they were saying while they were building it was that there was “not going to be a bad seat in the whole stadium.”  I have to say that I completely agree with it.  Granted, I’ve only been to two games, but it still holds true with everyone else that I’ve talked to about it.  The first time we were in the lower deck past third.  A bit more expensive of a seat, but a great view.  This last time we were in the nosebleed section, i.e. upper deck.  Again off third base.  Even though you almost got vertigo looking down, you could see everything easily.  Even across the whole ballpark to right field.  Twenty-ish years ago when I went and saw the Twinkies play in the Metrodome (a.k.a. The Big Inflatable Toilet (thank you 93X)), I was in the nosebleed section too.  You practically needed binoculars just to see the near end of the field.  So yes, the new stadium is an exponentially better experience.  Plus there is the food and beer.

Looking down from our seats. Objects in the photo are much closer than they appear. In other words, a pretty decent view of the field.

 

From left to right: the jumbo-tron, Minnie and Paul shaking hands, Minneapolis skyline, and some building with the Target dog on it.

I don’t remember what they call them now, but they used to be the Dome-dogs. The one with all of the crap on it is mine. The other one is Lindsay’s. Duh.

And it comes with a bag of chips complete with the Twins logo. That’s extra, you know.

Lindz in her kid-sized jersey that was half the price and fit better than the woman’s version. That’s Dave in his jersey in the background. There will be posts featuring him in the future, whether he likes it or not.

But more importantly, Lindz is holding my beer. A very nice Surly Belgian White.

Nachos. Need I say more?

Finally, there were the peanuts. Strangely, this was the most satisfying food I had that game.
