Minnesota Twins should pick a Bob Dylan song for a new anthem
Could the "boy" from the North Country be the answer for our drought?
Summer un-officially began this month as pitchers and catchers reported to Florida to mark the start of another season of trying to survive in Twins territory. Even though about 12 inches of snow covers Target Field, we can still daydream of April 1 when the skies will be blue, and Joe Mauer and Justin Morneau will be healthy.
The Twins shipped off and cut players to build for 2014 and onward. (And the Miguel Sano and Alex Meyer Please Hurry Up plan is in full effect now.) So while they are making adjustments, can we ask to change one more thing? The music.
Prince flashes his eephus pitch.
I would say Prince but we all know how well that worked out for the Vikings. Ouch. But it would be pretty cool to hear a homegrown royal's badass guitar riff rip through the speakers scaring away those imposter Royals from Kansas City.
Brother Ali does have that hometown spirit, though.
How about something from our homegrown talent pool of rappers? I mean I like to bump some Brother Ali while I work out but that "rap crap" might offend half the season ticket base. Besides "Room With a View" isn't exactly proud hometown homage like Jay-Z's "Empire State of Mind" you hear at Yankee Stadium.
Maybe we should adopt Dylan and "Lay Lady Lay" because baseball is a romantic game and our national pastime, just as Dylan is Minnesota's pastime.
