Let's hope the traffic gods are smiling, because more than 55,000 people will blow into downtown Minneapolis at rush hour tonight, as the stars align to bring a Twins home game and a major league teenybopper to town all at once.

The gates at Target Field open at 5:30 p.m. ahead of the 7:10 p.m. Twins game against the Detroit Tigers.

Doors open for the Bieber concert at 5:50 p.m. ahead of his scheduled 7 p.m. show.

Note: Loads of tweeenie fans will likely be dropped off and picked up outside the arena, adding an extra layer of frustration to traffic-jam hell.

Then on Thursday, the whole process repeats itself. Doors at the Target Center open at 6 p.m. for a 7 p.m. geezer rock show featuring Foreigner, Styx and Kansas. And the Twins take on the Tampa Bay Rays at 7 p.m., with the gates opening at 5 p.m.

Remember how your boss told you about the possibility of working from home? This sounds like the right time to bring it up. If that doesn't work out, check out these tips.
