Big Day in Minnesota

A graying, veteran, fan-favorite made a big splash on the Minnesota sports scene yesterday.  And even though he hasn’t been around all that long, he has endeared himself to the fans of professional sports in Minnesota with his class-act and his easy-come, easy-go nature.  In fact, he’s become so popular in such a relatively short amount of time, that many fans now sport his jersey.  So it was with great excitement that we were able to watch him grab the spotlight yesterday.

And no, I’m not talking about that guy, I’m talking about Jim Thome, of the Minnesota Twins.  Thome will celebrate his 40th birthday at the end of August.  I hope I’m invited, because he seems like my kind of guy.  And after his game-winning, walk-off home run last night against the hated White Sox, he really seems like my kind of guy.  I’d argue that Jason Kubel’s grand slam off of Mariano Riveria and the Yankees earlier this year is the biggest Twins home run of the year.  I’d put Thome’s homer last night as a close second.  Just don’t ask him to try score from first on a double.  That was equal parts painful and humorous to watch.

So on a day when another graying, veteran, fan-favorite stole the national spotlight from pretty much every other person in the world, it was good to see Big Jim grab a little bit back late in the night.  I’m proud to be one of “Thome’s Homies.”
