Thank you, Shane of Greet Machine for giving me the secret MT code to fix the banner. In gratitude, I link to your blog. They've got some great stuff over there! As someone who hasn't had a lot of time to pay much attention to sports lately (well, I did watch the Super Bowl... and I went to all the Gopher Football games... and one basketball game... and quite a few Twins games. But other than that.) it is great to see such a comprehensive site about local sports issues.
The idea about the state buying the Twins and building a stadium is a great idea, if we can come up with the money. I would not support public funding for a stadium to make billionaire owners even richer, unless the state was getting something out of the deal-- such as a three-time AL Central Division championship team. If you are interested in stadium financing issues, be sure to check it out.
And, after the Men's Basketball team beat Wisconsin on Saturday, we are dominating that inferior university 185-75 in the "Border Battle Cup," which shows that despite our underachieving football team, the U is actually doing pretty well in the athletic field.
On another note... I am absolutely clueless with this Movable Type thing. If anyone else has any tips for me, go ahead and post 'em! But remember-- I don't do programming. If you could post the code and tell me exactly what to do with it, that would be great. One thing I really want to do is add a feature that would allow me to post a "song of the day"-type thing on the sidebar as a separate entry so I wouldn't have to change the template every day. I tried to set up a "sideblog" as seen on another site, but it was too complicated, so I gave up.
