Happy Memorial Day. Let’s never forget our brave countrymen who died so we might live in freedom. If the season were to end today, the Twins would make the AL playoffs. Ed Kasputis interviews podcaster Paul Pleiss from talktocontact.com about the Twins and Joe Connor aka Mr. Sports Travel about things to do in the Twin Cities.
We’re in Milwaukee as we talk Brewers’ baseball and learn about former National League umpire great, Augie Donatelli (1914 – 1990). Ed Kasputis interviews Kyle Lobner from brewcrewball.com and the podcast concludes as we say good bye to Milwaukee and head west to Minneapolis to see the Twins!
In February 2010, Ed Kasputis flew to Kanas City to interview Gina Leo Stingley from the sports architectural firm, Populous about the opening of Target Field in April of that year. In 96 days, Populous‘ next Major League ballpark will open – Miami Marlins’ Ballpark.
Memorial Day 2011, our PhD Committee is back in beautiful Minneapolis but what a difference a year makes. The Twins are struggling and in last place. Ed interviews Stew Thornley about Harmon Killebrew. Frank Ceresi shares his thoughts on MLB veteran Hank Gowdy and and our PhD Committee debates whether playoff expansion is wise. Then we pack up for the Motor City. Next week, it’s time to ponder whether the Tigers can catch those Indians?
