A funny thing happened at the office today

A member of the sales staff is a raging Red Sox fan, much like my good friend D Cup. The celebrated Minnesota Twins are hosting the Beantown 9 this weekend. Thanks to the brilliant unbalanced scheduling Major League Baseball employs, this is the lone visit the Red Sox will make to Minnesota this year. It's a small price to pay for Twins fans, however, as they get the privilege of watching two East Coast teams battle on national TV 19 times this season, but I digress.

Some co-workers wanted to remind our poor sales rep that she's living and working in Twins territory, so they decorated her cubicle with a ton of Twins decorations. I thought it was rather funny, but she seemed to be a bit too pissed about a modest prank. Silly girl.

And while I'm not a Beantown apologist like D Teriorate, I'm a White Sox fan, so I'm often rooting against the local 9, and this weekend is no exception. Go Sox!

This poor woman.

Like any proud American, all she wants to do is go to work, make an honest living, and root for the noble and heroic Red Sox. Yet now her idyllic work space has been violated by ruffians.

I hope she returns the favor after Tavarez and Schilling complete the sweep this weekend.

Like you, I'm disappointed the Red Sox aren't going to sweep this weekend. My White Sox are the worst hitting team in the major leagues, so they need all the help they can get in the AL Central right now. Here's hoping your Beantown 9 can win the series on Sunday afternoon.
