In my last post I mentioned that we had seen the Budweiser Clydesdale's at the Twins game. I had some fun taking photos of them! Here they come, from the next to the bull pen in the outfield.
Horses, beer and baseball. Works for me!
Great times are waiting indeed! They timed their changing signs pretty well.
Grab some Buds!
The horses are so impressive. I think that the players were pretty taken back by their size. Wonder what Justin Morneau #33 was thinking!
I wonder what the horses thought of TC bear!
They made the turn behind home plate look pretty easy peasy.
They are getting closer!
Pictures don't do them justice...the sheer size and power is pretty impressive.
Oh...look at this, they stopped right in front of us! Maybe we can get in on some of the horse conversation. What, you didn't know that horses talked? Haven't you seen Mr. Ed?
Look at these two...they put the young ones out in front. Trouble makers, you can just see it.
One little guy with 8 sets of reins. He's hoping those trouble makers in the front behave themselves!
I think these two spotted someone drinking a Coors up in the stands...you shouldn't drink Coors in front of the Budweiser Clydes...it just ain't fittin'.
Oh oh...these two are starting to chat...hay...did you hear the one about the horse that went into the bar?
The bartender said "hey, why the long face". Har har hardy har...I crack myself up!
Clyde...you are so funny. Har har...oh...my ear itches...
Ahhh...that is nice Bud...thanks for helping a guy out. Itchy bridles and stuff all over us...
Hay...did you see that new filly in the back pasture?
She can sure swish her tail...woo hoo! Maybe she has a sister for you Clyde! Maybe they'd want to horse around....
Oh hush...here comes that mean handler guy, shaking his fist at us again!
Come on you two, focus, you're working remember? No more joking around....
Oh I hate getting scolded...quit getting me in trouble Bud!
But Clyde...we don't get out much...and boys just wanna have fun!
No more fun for you boys! Straighten up, you can be replaced you know!
Darned trouble makers...a drivers work is never done.
Way to go Clyde...getting us in trouble again.
But Bud...did you hear the one about the...oh never mind.
Time to get back to work.
Nice chatting with you Clyde...let's pull this thing back to the barn...maybe there will be some oats and filly's waiting for us!
And just like that they were off.
The 2nd horse was hollering at the Twins...wishing them luck!
Another tight turn.
Precision driving...pretty impressive!
Oh luck, there is TC Bear! Looking for that Coors drinker I bet.
Oh oh...I think he found him! It wasn't me TC...don't shoot! Whew...that was a close one.
And then it was time for the game. The Twins didn't do very well...and it was Justin Morneau's last night as a Twin. Sad to see him go. Sad to see all the changes that have been made on the team since the fancy stadium was built.
The sign lights up when the home team scores...
...if they keep trading away our good guys they might as well turn off the lights! Or they could just keep bringing the Clydesdale's back. When there are horses and beer it doesn't really matter how the team does!
Silly post...thanks for stopping by.
