Like Kanye West at the VMAs, the Minnesota Twins are doing their best to disrupt the Detroit Tigers acceptance speech for the American League Central Title.
Well, we know 2 things: 1) Kanye interruption jokes are pretty much like hot dogs at the ballpark; Mandatory, and 2) The AL Central has provided the drama latest in the season the last 2 years. Thanks to them for getting the playoff vibe fired up early.
And like Beyonce, both teams are pretty and respectable and darned classy. The 4 game series with a Doubleheader Thursday heats up the final week of the regular season.
So we must examine the Twin Cities v MoTown: Who’s the better? And of course we could break down starting pitching, offensive prowess, defensive skill and clutch-ness, but then we would be MLB/E would we.
Michigan v Minnesota. The Central Movie Division:
Movies set in Minnesota: Grumpy Old Men, Juno, the entire Mighty Ducks franchise, Grumpier Old Men, Fargo (you betcha), and beyond all other cinematic awesomeness: Purple Rain.
Movies set in Michigan: Detroit Rock City, Action Jackson, 8 Mile, American Pie, the Beverly Hills Cop franchise, Semi-Pro, Gross Pointe Blank and Roger & Me.
So just like the race for the Central it’s pretty close here:
Eddie Murphy v cute kids on ice skates
Eminem v Walter Mathau
Michael Moore v Frances McDormand
And I’d say it’s a toss up especially in the Moore v McDormand battle, but when it comes down do it:
Prince vs the entire state of Michigan.
Twins win 5-4 to face the Yankees.
