As I’ve said before, I’m in Michigan. Before that, I lived for a while in Colorado. But I was born in and grew up in Minnesota.

And the Twins are facing the Yankees in the playoffs.

I’m not much of a baseball fan anymore, but I wanted to watch the Twins a bit and show my son some more about the game.

The Twins just finished losing Game 2 7-6 in 12 innings. But I spent the first part of the game emailing back and forth with a friend of mine currently in Poland. Then, getting tired of that, he called my phone over the internet using his computer. Although we got cut off a few times, it was a lot of fun watching the game and calling the plays for him since his internet coverage was lagging by a pitch or so.

Well, it was fun until they lost. And he stayed up until 5:30 AM local time to watch his team go down in flames.

Ain’t technology fun?
