"I'm not updated on the whole Notre Dame scene but this team is playing for a bigger purpose than making him eat crow," Twins player rep Denny Hocking said. "We're playing for a greater purpose, to be on top at the end of the season." That's reassuring, but it sure would be nice for Bud to have to eat "crow". Go Twins!

LOL... Bud Selig is just another pompous windbag, who should have given up the reigns long ago (or, should not have gotten them in the first place). I'm looking for a Twins-Giants World Series, with the Twins coming out on top. Then every member of the champions should moon El Commissionero while he gives the trophy to the manager.

He won't give the trophy to the manager. The procedure is to give the trophy to the OWNER of the team, with the manager standing beside him. So if the Twins win the whole thing, Bud Selig (hated by fans) will hand the trophy to Carl Pohlad (hated by fans). It's going to be real hard for the Twin fans not to boo when that happens. Since they do the trophy presentation on the field now, there could be 55,000 people booing a championship. Of course, the moment Pohlad hands the trophy over to Gardenhire, the place would just explode with cheers.
