I am a lifelong Minnesota Twins fan. Since I am 25, I belong to that unfortunate segment of fans who was just too young to experience what a Minnesota Team (other than the Lynx) winning a championship felt like in 1991. Since I now live in Seattle, keeping up with the Twins is one of the ways I stay connected to home, but unfortunately there are few fellow fans to commiserate with. I possess a strong sense of the conflicted nature of the Minnesota sports fan, both simultaneously optimistic and hopelessly skeptical from one moment to the next. Finally, I am a recovering fan of Delmon Young, and it has been a long journey back.
