Quote of the Day: clothes you can puke on

May 10, 2010, 2:13 PM EDT

No, they’re still wearing clothes you can puke on.

Dick, a random Twins fan, when asked if fans are starting to dress up more for Twins games now that they’ve started playing in their fancy new stadium.

I’m glad to see that Twins fans are keeping it casual. At least, I think they are. I mean, based on that quote it’s entirely possible that the reporter mixed up his notes with those from his last trip to Philadelphia.

    Maybe it’s just that in Philly they are not so discriminating about the clothes on can puke on. Just a thought.

    I always wondered why people kept bringing up what their Captcha words were, and thought it was a little silly. Then I clicked through to the comments on this thread and saw “vulnerable getup”.

    Again and again he tried after the tempting morsel, but at last had to give it up, and walked away with his nose in the air, saying: “I am sure they are sour.”

    i wear my “vintage” Christian Guzman away Twins jersey that i got for $10 at a Goodwill to every game i go to. so yeah, i think Dick has it about right. i wore it to game 163 against Detroit last year, so i’m pretty sure it has special powers.

    The stench from leftover horsemeat and velveeta puke at the Vet still wafts into CBP when the wind from NJ is right. Just kidding, Jonny5.

    Let’s keep this playing field level. We were referring to the open-air icebox against which they just broke the champagne bottle in Minny. They don’t eat horsemeat and velveeta sandwiches up there, preferring everything on white bread. Or on a stick. Order a mulled cider in Minneapolis in February. Grasp it by the protruding cinnamon stick. Extrude the frozen plug of cider from the mug and try sucking on it without your lips getting stuck. Great fun. But getting back on topic, the idea of a baseball stadium that could double as a cryogenic center (which would go nicely with all those genetic engineering labs in Edina and St. Louis Park) reminds me of that great old Cowboy Junkies song:
    It’s the kind of night that’s so cold /
    Your puke, it freezes before it hits the shirt of the fan sitting in front of you….
    (Okay, it doesn’t scan, but if Michael Timmins can keep cramming extra syllables into his lines, so can I.)
