Hot motherfucking damn! Carlos Silva just pitched a complete game shutout! Is it just me, or did this totally remind you of the complete game shutout he pitched against the Angels back in 2004? Yes, I know Bert mentioned it during the broadcast, but I remember it on my own, thankyouverymuch.
Okay, so I didn't even get home from the gym until 8:00. And when I saw the Twins were up 6-0 I decided it would be lovely to sit out on the deck and have a beer. Then of course, I had to shower. But I totally watched from probably the middle of the sixth on through the end. But still, it really did look like the 2004-vintage Silva, what with all the double plays turned behind him (Little Nicky Punto had a particularly lovely one).
OH! Was that a tear rolling down his face just now in the post-game interview with the always-fantastic and completely adorable Marney Gellner? Upon further review, it was not. Thanks to the miracle of the DVR, I tracked the sweat from his forehead and into his eyebrow, where it tracked down to look like a tear. I'd totally love to get hammered with Marney sometime, by the way.
Earlier today, I was disinclined to agree with the esteemed Jerious Norwood about the Twins getting hot, but after this game I've changed my tune.
