Baseball season is fast approaching despite the fact that snow covers the St. Paul landscape. The Minnesota Twins home opener is March 31. The Diggin' Dino on the left is Joe Mauerasaurus created in honor of St. Paul's Joe Mauer by Brandon Kuehn and Stacy Azlein for the Minnesota Twins. Joe, the Dino, is still in front of the Xcel Energy Center awaiting the snowmelt and the official opening of the season.
Not to be outdone, the Saint Paul Saints, St. Paul's minor league team, has its season opener on May 8. Fun Is Goodasaurus spent the summer of 2007 at Midway Stadium on Energy Park Drive west of Snelling Ave. If you have not been to a Saints game, give it a whirl. Tailgaters throw great parties in the parking lot, hot dogs come with the works, the fans actually cheer and do the wave. In a nutshell, the Saints games are like baseball used to be! You can even take the whole family without spending your retirement check! Fun Is Goodasaurus was created by Andy Nelson and The Saints.
