"So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past."
-F. Scott Fitzgerald, "The Great Gatsby"
As the proverb goes: the dog barks, the caravan moves on. As the ALCS moves on without us, gentle reader, I hope you can suffer me one more baseball bark.
Throughout this season, the Twins last in the Dome, we've taken four prior strolls to recognize the club's now-previous environs. To revisit these pieces, please click upon the number for each respective column: 1 2 3 4.
Before engendering coverage of Vikings and Gophers football in this space, please enjoy this fifth and final entry, whereupon myriad Twins fans were kind enough to share their video impressions of their own Metrodome Memories and the team's move to Target Field. Many thanks to all who participated back on 9/15 when the Boys were 5.5 games out with little hope at the postseason. In about a month from now, we'll hopefully have opportunity to celebrate Joe Mauer's deserved American League MVP, earned via his unprecedented third batting title for a catcher, the highest batting average ever attained by a player at his position(.365), and league-leading slugging (.587) and on-base (.444) percentages. Until that late-November date, please enjoy the videos below:
