Making You Feel Old At Twinkie Town

The Twins finished last in 2011, something they hadn’t done in the eleven years prior. After winning two World Series during my formative years, the team was godawful for most of my teenage years, an experience that made the division titles of the past decade all the sweeter. But I realized that for many people, for even those approaching the end of high school, they’ve never known anything but a dominant Twins ballclub.

That’s weird – weird enough that I went through and did some arithmetic and worked out some of the other ages you’d have to be to remember certain things about the Twins. It’s the Twins Mindset List. (Key finding: You have to be nearing 30 to remember the World Series win in 1991. Holy crap, I’m old.)
