Happy 4th of July

We're spending independence day in the car, driving from Minneapolis to Cincinnati. We should make it there in time to see the fireworks show tonight. Reds game tomorrow vs the Cardinals. Between the two teams playing, and the fact that MLB is wearing red hats all weekend... this should be a very red game.

The drive has been pretty uneventful so far. Justin pointed out 4 buses from the Philadelphia public transit system driving around the middle of Wisconsin. We were slightly confused by that.

Speaking of strange things... we passed one and a half pickup trucks on I-80 in Nebraska.
Between fireworks and pickup trucks towing halves of pickup trucks, the Northeast is missing out!

Anyway, the Twins game was awesome last night. All five hours and 16 innings of it. The Twins never had the lead, but they came back from being down 6 runs early to tie the game with 5 runs in the sixth, and then no one scored for awhile (7 innings). The Tigers took a one run lead in the top of the 14th, and then the Twins tied it up again in the bottom half. The Tigers then took a 3 run lead in the 16th - the Twins came back with one and almost tied it up again, but the game ended with the tying run at bat. Twins fans were great though, and many of them stuck around to see the final out.

Photos of all five California ballparks are up. Check 'em out.
