Sports and politics are my two passions, so I have to admit I've buried the Twins in committee over the past week. The conventions only happen once every four years, the Twins are on the west coast and, by the looks of their box scores, they've endured mostly frustrating defeats since last Saturday.
Next week, of course, the GOP convention is in town and they say it is a "once in a lifetime opportunity" for us Minnesotans. So, I am going to make my way over to St. Paul via bus and check things out. They won't let me in the door of the Xcel Center, but I still have to be as close as I can to the action. I just can't help myself.
