This is listed under *Satire* and was written by RandBall's Stu; this is Twinkie Town's version of The Onion.

This is the greatest article ever written. Good lord this is wonderful. I'm just going to put this here without any other context;

A Lee Memorial Hospital official said that Howell Zierlien, 81, and his wife Irene, 78, are both in stable condition after what is described by witnesses as a bizarre, disturbing incident at Hammond Stadium.

NO! It's fake??? Oh this is awful.

I knew it was fake. For one thing there's no "patch of bare earth behind the concession stand" at Target Field, as that's all been set up as high dollar vendor space. And for another Mrs. Zielien's name is actually Verlene, not Irene. Geez, what is this, Queens? Oh, and crossfit is way more than $99/month for families.

And I love Jim, but there was a terrible squandering of opportunity with regard to tagging this story. Just "Twins"? smh...

The "controversy" regarding the "circle me Bert" has been so ridiculous here in MN. Yes, the article was written in a satiric response to a real controversy regarding Bert no longer circling people at games*. No I am not describing it further, I would end up dumber as would everyone who read it. If you must Google it.

* False alarm. It just won't be sponsored. Thank God! /sarcasm.

"Fight Me Gregg" would be more appropriate at SunTrust Park.

If Bert stops circling people, Imma have to come back to Minneapolis to kick his aged Dutchman ass. Circle Me Bert is a treasure.
