Iowahawk decides that if the Star-Tribune is going to waste talent on beat reporting, why not go all the way? The thought of Hunter S. Thompson covering a Little League T-Ball game is funny enough — and the results are even more hilarious. A sample:
When we finally got to Wayzata we made our way to the baseball complex, built in ’76 by the crewcut fascists of the local American Legion to dull the pain of the Vietnam horror. The parking lot was crammed with every manner of minivan – Caravans, Voyagers, Windstars, Siennas, the bloated metal three-row-seating carcasses of a filthy cul-de-sac world driven half insane by rot, hate, and juice box schedules.
That’s when the mushrooms kicked in.
