The squirrel at the ballgame

At about noon one day last week, I decided on a whim to head down to see the Twins play the Tigers at Target Field.

It was pretty much a Toothbrush Trip, where you grab a toothbrush and go.


I didn't have a ticket, but you can scalp those on the street.

It was too late to call anybody to join me at the park, but that's okay. Some of my best baseball memories come when I go to a game alone and quietly soak it all in.
