Linksville

internetNow and then I run across stories, blogs, video’s and articles about the Minnesota Twins and their history that I enjoyed watching or reading but don’t fit into anything that I am currently doing on this site so I bookmark them on my computer so I can reference them again some time in the future. The list has gotten long and no one else is getting to enjoy them so I think that I would build a page on this site that will make these links available to everyone. These articles are a link to the Minnesota Twins great history and it is important that we don’t forget the link to the past. The list here is just a beginning, we will continue to add items as we go along so don’t forget to keep checking back. If you come across something that you think we should link to and share with the rest of Twins Territory, let us know and we will see what we can do.

Some of the links here might not be all about the Twins but in some way in my twisted little mind it ties back to baseball and thus the Minnesota Twins. Let me know what you think and feel free to leave your comments about any link you wish. Part of the fun of reading is sharing your memories or thoughts about the piece you just finished reading.
