As we headed into the first day of spring, the week seemed to have been filled with ups and downs. Our weather has bounced from 60’s to 40’s, from spring to winter. My favorite NCAA basketball team, the Jayhawks of Kansas University were up and then down, causing my brackets to bleed red. But today has ended the week on an up note. The Minnesota Twins held an open house for their season-ticket holders and we had the opportunity to see the brand new Target Field. Just like someone getting dressed up for company, the skies were blue, the sun was warm, and we learned the stadium is a gem! From our seats near the first base foul pole to the upper deck to the clear image on the scoreboard to the speaker system that you can actually understand — it’s all good. And to add icing on the cake, we’ve learned that our home-town MVP Joe Mauer has agreed to a contract extension. The team is looking good, and now our new stadium is almost done. Spring is in the air when you know opening day for baseball is just around the corner!
