Baseball fan Craig Finn has written a new anthem for the Minnesota Twins entitled 'Don't Call Them Twinkies.'
Finn was invited to participate in the track by the Baseball Project, a supergroup led by Steve Wynn of Dream Syndicate fame, along with Peter Buck and Scott McCaughey of R.E.M. and ex-Zuzu's Petals drummer Linda Pitmon.
The Baseball Project will release their debut album next year.
It's pretty fun, unfortunately I don't think the Twins will ever relive some of the great moments mentioned in the tune.
It's pretty uplifting though, nothing like my reaction ;)
Fuck yes. Hold Steady + The Twins = Gold.
Article should probably mention that he's the Hold Steady's frontman, no?
This is cool as hell even though I loathe the Twinkies.

Satty how are those Tiger doing?
They're in a heated battle for 2nd place in the Central, thank you very much.
I hope they eclipse the Sox
I think they will. The Tigers are at least showing some life.

Fuck yes. Hold Steady + The Twins = Gold.
