Friday Links-N-Thinks

How many of you are desperate for baseball to start again? As I put this post together, I have Game 7 of the 1987 World Series playing on my television. It is early in the game and the crowd just starting chanting Kirby Puckett's first name (He beat out an infield hit in his first at-bat). I know the result of the game but it is still fun to relive one of the best moments in Minnesota sports history. 

February 18 is the reporting date for Twins pitchers and catchers and many Twins players have already been discussing their travels to Florida on Twitter. The team's first game in Fort Myers will be on March 3 against the Rays so many fan's thoughts will be turning to the beginning of the baseball year. The Florida sun is getting closer and closer to chasing away the mild Minnesota winter.

The Twins blogosphere continues to produces some quality work during the offseason months. Here is this week's edition of "Friday Links-N-Thinks." Enjoy!

My Weekly Rundown:
Video of the Week: Since I was watching the 1987 World Series while I composed this post, I was feeling a little nostalgic. This montage from the 1987 is worth watching for the song alone. Have a great weekend everybody!
