We’ve narrowed it down to five selections. Choose wisely.

A) Great Northern ...

Taking Back the Ballparks - Minnesota Twins
  by SoSH U at work

As with just about everything else in the Twin City, the new stadium there sports the Target brand, a company headquartered there, not in France. Surely, the metropolis that gave us Husker Du, Prince and Craig Finn can do a little better on a name for its nifty new park*.

Unlike their wimpy ...

Bigfoot, and Unicorns, and the Red Sox Bullpen
  by villageidiom

Reports are that “Tyler Thornburg” is joining the Red Sox bullpen today. This is the closest we’ve been to actual confirmation that “Tyler Thornburg” actually exists.
