Since spring training, Minnesota Twins fans have been punished with the craptacular GB Leighton song “Twins Territory,” played during every Fox Sports Net game broadcast this season. The mute button on my TV remote control has never received so much attention.
Today, as our beloved team prepares for the playoffs, Twins fans finally have an anthem we can be proud of. The Baseball Project, a kick-ass “supergroup” featuring (the other) Steve Wynn, Peter Buck, Linda Pitmon and Scott McCaughey, have teamed up with The Hold Steady frontman and Minnesota Twins uberfan Craig Finn to record “Don’t Call Them Twinkies.”
Raise a toast to Kirby Puckett and enjoy.
