Hitting the Target

Over the weekend in Minnesota I went to my first Twins home game of the year, which happened to be the Twins' one victory over the Yankees in the four-game weekend series.

A fascinating observation: fans of the Twins, after years of playoff exits and regular season blowouts at the hands of the Evil Empire, have become pre-2004 Red Sox fans, complete with "Yankees Suck" shirts and requisite booing of Derek Jeter. And it's the same one-sided rivalry that Yanks-Sox used to be; if you asked any Yankee fan to name their top rivals, the Twins probably wouldn't be one of the first 15 names listed.
