Do not sit in this guy's seats at the dome in Section 120 row 13. He will call security to have you kicked out even though there are plenty of seats all around the section and you've sat in them for the first 6 innings of the game. You will think he's joking, but he's not. He likes his seat.
If he wasn't such a big snitch, you'd be able to see Paul Westerberg sitting 5 rows in front of you.
Just to clear up any arguments, from Minor League News
John P. Bonser had his name legally changed to Boof Bonser in high school.
Updates - Free Hot Dogs on Friday!
We've changed our name from Domed Dreams to Boofda.com today. Hopefully this will stick. In anticipation of the BOOFDA shirts showing up for Boof's first start at the Dome.
Ron Gardenhire was ejected in the fifth inning
of Wednesday's game against the Cleveland Indians. I wish I had gone to this game today. I love it anytime Gardy get's mad enough to throw his hat.
Gardenhire raced out of the dugout to argue the call and kicked dirt over second base and threw his hat before Hernandez tossed him from the game. Gardenhire continued to argue for several minutes before stomping back to the dugout and leaving his hat near second base. Hernandez picked up the hat and started to stuff it in his back pocket before Gardenhire returned to retrieve it. Hernandez tossed the hat to him to end the confrontation.
Tim Pawlenty will sign the Twins stadium bill before Minnesota's
game against the Seattle Mariners on Friday night at the Metrodome. Game time has been pushed back from 7:05 to 7:30 to celebrate the beginning of the end of the dome.
Former Twins greats Harmon Killebrew, Rod Carew and Tony Oliva will attend the ceremonies. Twins owner Carl Pohlad and Jerry Bell, the president of Twins Sports Inc. who was the team's point man on the stadium drive, also will be on hand.
For the first time ever they Twins will be giving away FREE hot dogs and soft drinks.
This should be a pretty awesome night for any Twins fan. Free Dogs, New Stadium, and Liriano vs Felix Hernandez. The future.
These were ordered today.
Hopefully they'll be here for Boof's first home start.
Breaking News - Finally!
The Twins are changing up the rotation, sending Silva to the bullpen and placing my man Francisco Liriano in the 3rd slot.
Now Lohse is being optioned down to Rochester and the Twins are bringing up Boof Bonser.
From the Twins Media Department:
Minneapolis, MN– The Minnesota Twins announced today that they have optioned righthanded pitcher Kyle Lohse to Rochester (AAA, International League). In eight starts this season, Lohse was 2-4, 8.92 (38.1 ip, 38 er), allowing 57 hits with 19 walks and 24 strikeouts.

Hopefully he'll still have that moustache.
I'm still here.. Just been busy and with the less than stellar season it's been hard to get into updates. I'll start next week when I get back from NY.
