Day 1 – Travel Alert number 2

Day 1 – Travel Alert number 2

I only wanted to see you laughing in the purple rain

It rained purple all of the night and all of the day…purple rain everywhere, thank you Prince

Game postponed until Thursday night. THB and DB are in Chicago on Thursday night and thus will not be attending the Twins – Tampa Bay make-up game. Thus THB will not be attending a game in his 44th different major league park. Not this trip (here are where the sobs go….let them purple tears fall, now)

THB and DB will be coming back to Minneapolis. Not this year, probably next when the Weisman Art Center re-opens.

The structure in the picture is the Twins old stadium, the Metrodome. THB has seen a game there. What is missing is the Metrodome’s roof, caved in during a massive snowstorm this winter. It is across the street from our hotel. Nobody sheds any tears for it, except when the new stadium is unplayable.


  1. Yesssss, unfortunately a view of two stadiums with no roofs!!! and, now close to freezing...
