TwinsFest 09

(Nice Shirt!!)
Twins Fest 2009 came and went and again it was a fabulous time. It’s always nice to see the guys and coaches again. It seems like we never miss a beat. The jokes start right up and the whole weekend is a blast.

I think this year was by far my busiest Twins Fest yet. It started on Friday with me leaving my house at 6 a.m! I did the Dunker’s breakfast which was very cool. From there it was the media luncheon and then radio time, Q&A, and autographs until 9:30. I think I set a record for the length of time wearing the same shirt when I took it off at 3 a.m. Saturday morning. 21 hours ain’t bad!!

Saturday started early with our team physicals. Blood work, pee-test, EKG, glaucoma, etc. They go over us with a fine tooth comb. I did more radio interviews, a photo session with some kids for KS95, and also more autographs. It was a long but also fun day. It ended with me falling asleep at 9 o’clock. Saturdays are always the most exhausting day.

Sunday was the easiest day with just a radio interview I did with Baker and an autograph session with Slowey and Crain.

Special thanks to Dustin Morse and Mike Herman for staying on top of us irresponsible players and always making sure we were in the right place. Way to go guys.

That’s just a little rundown of my Twins fest. Most importantly 31,000+ showed up to support the Twins Community Fund and altogether the event raised a bunch of money to help a bunch of great causes.

Thanks for tuning in. See you next time!

its great to her you had such a good time. Ill agree, Twinsfest was awesome! I went on Saturday and got to do a lot of fun stuff, but unfortunately never saw you. I wish I would gotten to have seen you along with some others that I didnt get too. But, on a more happy note, I DID get to see Harris!! I was sooo excited (hes my favorite player). The Q and A’s were a lot of fun. Its pretty cool that you can follow the players through the crowd as they go from place to place (not that i ever did that……)
Anyways, just wanted to say hi now to make up for missing you on Saturday!
Thanks for posting!

Sounds like a great weekend! I wonder if the Padres will be having a FanFest this year…anyways, baseball is right around the corner!

Sounds like a fun weekend, I’m sure you’re as eager to play as I am to watch. I’ll be at a few Spring Training games, perhaps even Twins ones, so maybe I’ll see you play!
